Any resemblance to persons living or dead... The disclaimer has a neat, red line through it... She thought she had laid it to rest. That it was finished. But now it has resurfaced. In her bedroom. In her head.

Welcome to the dark and unexpected world of Renee Knight’s Disclaimer, a fiendishly-twisting tale of a woman sickened to discover that a novel (entitled The Perfect Stranger) is not just about her, but lays bare a terrible secret she has kept buried for 20 years.

As the questions and sense of growing menace mount, Knight’s deft switches in perspective really force us to doubt everyone we meet: Disclaimer is a striking study in paranoia and deception, and all of us finding ourselves desperately turning the pages had to keep checking that this was Renee Knight’s debut. It is that assured.

'Television producer and scriptwriter Renée Knight's first novel has a brilliant central premise, so much so that I am tremendously envious I didn't come up with it myself...  I read Disclaimer in two sittings, missing my train stop after the first one. It's that good.' - The Express

'Disclaimer forms a trinity alongside Gone Girl and the The Girl on the Train as the best of domestic noir.' - The New York Daily News

'Renee Knight’s Disclaimer is something special... Ms. Knight lives up to the initial deal she made with readers and delivers fully on the threat she used to hook them.' - The New York Times

“Absolutely compelling”

Ever Before I Go To Sleep and, perhaps most potently, Gone Girl exploded on the literary scene a few years ago, there has been a growing trend in ‘domestic noir’ novels; thrillers that place their trauma in the home.... More
