Gamble - Salt Modern Fiction (Paperback)Kerry Hadley-Pryce (author)
Shortlisted for The Encore Award 2019
Greg Gamble: he’s a teacher, he works hard, he’s a husband, a father. He’s a good man, or tries to be. But even a good man can face a crisis. Even a good man can face temptation. Even a good man can find himself faced with difficult choices.
Greg Gamble: he thinks he can keep his head in the game. He thinks he’s trying to be good. Until he realises everyone is flawed.
And for Gamble, trying to be good just isn’t enough.

A stunning read.
Some readers may sympathise with Greg in his loveless marriage, with the child that was a mistake, with the threat of bad news hanging over him and a longing to be free of his domestic shackles. Others might really dislike him. I did. However, I was compelled to read to the end to find out exactly what he’d had done, and it’s because of the quality of writing. Read it yourself and see.
A quietly chilling depiction of what lies just below the surface of an outwardly ordinary and respectable family. A desolate yet riveting read.
Landscape is a cauldron for Kerry Hadley-Pryce’s intensely creepy and evocative writing.
