"Riveting, twisty as all hell, and very, very clever, A Knock at the Door is a rollercoaster ride of brilliance. Tom Wood is a superb thriller writer." (Sarah Pinborough)

stay with it

For fans of Tom Wood stick with this book. You may think it's an obvious generic plot. the twist at the end is worth it!

that's some twist

grand wee book, bit heavy with details and a little difficult to keep track of at times, but stick with it the twists and turns are surprising and one huge one at the end

Great piece of story telling

found it slow at first and struggled to get into it but once the story had me hooked I loved it. always enough first person told narratives!! must read for those like me who enjoy a nice mystery/thriller with a few twists thrown in

A terrible let down, DNF.

From the outset of this story it causes the reader to beg the questions; why would Tom wood an accomplished author try to write a novel in the first person from the perspective of a woman? Moreover, in the current social climate, why does this woman need to be ‘broken’? Some feeble damsel with a mixture of emotional issues who depends entirely on her husband. It’s tactless at best, misogynistic at worst.

Secondly why would the character who is already so inexplicably flawed be so unlikeable, making bad decisions her only motif and being gullible to the point of idiocy? I listened to the audio book (DNF) and the narration is terrible, the female orators voice is needling and any attempts to mimic a male character are as clumsy as the terrible premise for this story, which is neither original or compelling. I will be requesting a refund.
