Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Many thrillers require some suspension of disbelief, but not this one—its psychological soundness is what makes it both utterly terrifying and compelling. These masterfully drawn characters wouldn’t let me go until I raced my way to the final page. Playing Nice deserves a spot at the very top of every reader’s TBR pile. Stephanie Wrobel, author of Darling Rose Gold   “JP Delaney has done it again: whip smart prose and a cracking concept. . . . Compulsive from start to finish!
When it comes to ordinary families faced with terrifying dilemmas, there is no one better than JP Delaney. He is King of Thrillers, and Playing Nice is his best book yet. His chilling, compelling and oh-so-real books force us to confront our darkest fears—and question how far we would go to protect those we love. . . . Brilliant. Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle
“When it comes to ordinary families faced with terrifying dilemmas, there is no one better than JP Delaney. He is King of Thrillers, and Playing Nice is his best book yet.” Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle
