Masterfully plotted and utterly addictive, Greenwich Park is a dark, compelling look at motherhood, friendships, privilege and the secrets we keep to protect ourselves.
"Deliciously dark and deftly plotted. Faulkner mines the seam of guilt beneath her characters' 'perfect' lives with devastating precision." (Lesley Kara, author of The Rumour)
"Meticulously crafted and deeply satisfying, Greenwich Park has all the hallmarks of a first-class psychological thriller. I read it in two sittings and was left smiling sardonically at the final line." (Charlotte Philby, author of A Double Life)
"Brilliantly twisty and full of excellently observed – if chilling – characters, Greenwich Park is a clever and knowing delve into the female psyche as well as a classic, pacy mystery. Atmospheric, aspirational and addictive!" (Harriet Walker, author of The New Girl)

Very slow burn and unlikeable characters
Just too much detail, constant awkward similes, didn't like any of the characters. Well narrated, but the story is very slow. The several twists at the end were satisfying, if not totally startling.

Tense, Gripping & Juicy Stuff
This is an excellent novel in it's own right, as well as an impressive debut from Katherine Faulkner.
Greenwich Park is a twisty, tense and well-paced thriller that is rich with detail and keenly observed characters.
Looking forward to seeing more of this exciting author!
