Revenge is a dish served with lashings of relish in this vivid, blackly comic suspense novel, as three women fight back against an abusive partner. I cheered them on to the bloody end.
A revenge thriller to make you punch the air in solidarity, Sticks and Stones is a wickedly sharp, psychologically intense debut which announces Jo Jakeman as a future queen of grip lit.
Witty and satirical while illuminating a dilemma often faced by women when their marriages break up
It's not often you get a thriller that is just as good at keeping you on the edge of your seat as it is at making you laugh - but Sticks and Stones is both. A deliciously dark and gripping debut.
Reads like a darker Big Little Lies with all the female rage of Sharp Objects.
