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?

My thoughts:

Sticks and Stones is a sharp, dark and engrossing read full of twists and turns. It’s a solid debut novel and perfect if you want to get stuck in to a good domestic thriller. The book is fast paced and full of complex characters – as the plot unfolds, it switches time periods between the past and present, which keeps you intrigued and interested in the action throughout. At times it is a little over the top and farfetched, however I was still gripped throughout and couldn’t get through it quick enough – particularly the second half of the book. I’m looking forward to seeing what Jo Jakeman does next. If you’re keen to read an original thriller, then I highly recommend Sticks and Stones.
