Title: Disclaimer

Today I am kicking off Week One of the blog tour for Disclaimer by Renee Knight with a review. There has been SO much noise about this novel, so if you haven't read it yet then do! The other stops on the tour are listed below, so please do stop by their awesome blogs for some other great content.


I have been hearing so much about Disclaimer lately and I could not wait to get my hands on a copy. When I did, that was it, all other plans went out the window as once my eyes had landed on that first page, I knew I wasn't going to be able to stop reading.

Disclaimer is a completely unique thriller. I have never come across anything like it. The premise is so intriguing and a little creepy; Catherine Ravenscroft finds a mysterious novel in her home which throws her into a living nightmare. The book is unmistakably about her and a fateful time 20 years ago. She thought she had kept her dark secret hidden, as she thought that only one person knew and that person is dead...

Disclaimer is one of those reads where you literally cannot tear your eyes away from the page. The writing is incredibly atmospheric and fluid and it completely sucks you in. This is another brilliant psychological thriller that messes with your mind. One minute you find yourself empathising with one character and then suddenly your perception changes. You never truly get inside the minds of the characters because of this and this is partly what makes it such a great thriller as you don't know who or what to believe. There is so much that keeps you guessing and trying to form your own conclusions as to the outcome.

The premise is utterly brilliant; finding a book and reading it to find out it is all about you and a dark and deeply hidden secret that you initially thought was well and truly buried. Not only is the premise deeply intriguing and the story more so, it is also believable, which is what makes it all the more gripping. The narrative also cleverly switches between Catherine and the person who delivered the book to her, who is determined to make her pay. As you read on, more secrets and lies start to unravel themselves, all leading up to a very unexpected twist.

A very gripping psychological thriller that keeps you guessing.
