9780751558920: The Wishing Game

In the bleak winter term of 1954 something terrible happens at Kirkston Abbey School for Boys. Forty years later a lone journalist hovers near the terrible truth - a truth buried long ago by the panicked authorities. Kirkston Abbey is no place for the weak: its rules are harsh and its discipline savage. To fourteen-year-old Jonathan Palmer it is a prison, so he can't believe his luck when Richard Rokeby - the tough, handsome, aloof and beguiling loner - seeks out his friendship. But as the bond between the two boys deepens, Richard grows increasingly possessive, until Jonathan realises that something is not quite right with his new friend. What starts out as an innocent game takes a shocking turn as Jonathan finds himself powerless to stop Richard from unleashing a force which will wreak a terrible fate on them all. The Wishing Game is a breathtakingly compelling and sinister psychological thriller that launched Patrick Redmond to his much-deserved bestseller status.

Recensione:

The setting is genuinely chilling, and the atmosphere of menace and sterility riveting ( Daily Express)

Patrick Redmond's chilling debut novel is a first-rate page-turner . . . Other writers may be hailed as the new Patrick Redmond in years to come ( Daily Mirror)

Such is the hard-edged skill of Redmond's writing that the carefully structured revelations about the past have a bitter and compelling power ( Times Literary Supplement)

This impressive first novel powerfully evokes the terrible effects of cruelty and bullying, and the unravelling nightmare is sustained with suspense and pace ( Sunday Mirror)

Assured writing sets up evil to overcome the weak in this deft, Hitchcockian portrayal of a malevolent microcosm of warped power ( Publishing News)

The Wishing Game is dark and gripping, like an anaconda. I could not pull myself away: an astonishing debut ( Tim Rice)

Thanks to Redmond's masterfully subtle fore-shadowing, a brooding sense of impending disaster is maintained throughout his gripping suspense thriller ( Publishers Weekly)

Redmond has a way of making individuals seem both more human and more vile as new levels of detail are unearthed. Even his villains manage to become more understandable, vulnerable and complex as the book marches on . . . An impressive debut ( Washington Post)

Redmond's teenage characters are well-drawn, and the small universe of the school becomes a real emotional landscape, where the pupils are credited with passionate and complex emotion ( Independent on Sunday)
