Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Sticks and Stones by Jo Jakeman. 

Imogen’s husband is a bad man. His ex-wife and his new mistress might have different perspectives, but Imogen thinks she knows the truth. And now he’s given her an ultimatum: get out of the family home in the next fortnight or I’ll fight you for custody of our son.

In a moment of madness, Imogen does something unthinkable: she locks her husband in the cellar. Now she’s in control. But how far will she go to protect her son and punish her husband? And what will happen when his ex and his girlfriend get tangled up in her plans?

Sticks and Stones is a deliciously twisting psychological thriller from an unforgettable new voice.

Gripping read - 5 STARS

This book was excellent, it was a the true definition of a psychological thriller, twists and turns ensured you were itching to turn the next page. Nice to read a book where I enjoyed each character. Narrator was well chosen and brought the story to life. Highly recommend this book, I’m going to search the author for more books.

Far too long

This book takes on the difficult subject of domestic violence and mental bullying - but I found a lot of the storyline unrealistic and went on far too long
Not for me
