Waterstones Says

The tragic end to an intimate dinner in an affluent West London home unearths a mesh of secrets and deception in this chilling, ingeniously plotted domestic noir from the author of Hold Your Breath.

Waterstones Thriller of the Month for April 2021

Four people walked into the dining room that night. One would never leave.

Matthew: the perfect husband.

Titus: the perfect son.

Charlie: the perfect illusion.

Rachel: the perfect stranger.

Charlie didn't want her at the book club. Matthew wouldn't listen.

And that's how Charlie finds himself slumped beside his husband's body, their son sitting silently at the dinner table, while Rachel calls 999, the bloody knife still gripped in her hand.

Classic crime meets Donna Tartt in this nerve-shredding domestic noir thriller that weaves a sprawling web of secrets around an opulent West London world and the dinner that ends in death.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for A Version of the Truth:

'Devilishly well-plotted, crisply written - and a hell of a lot of fun. What a smashing debut!' - A.J. Finn, #1 bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

'Beguiling, surprising and sometimes shocking. Cleverly crafted with characters who stay with you. Highly-polished debut.' - Jane Corry, author of The Dead Ex

'Such a confident debut from Barnaby Walter and the most disturbing thriller I've read this year.' - Emma Curtis, author of One Little Mistake and When I Find You

'Day one of my holiday lost to B P Walter and his intriguing thriller A Version of the Truth. If you like Peter Swanson, this will be right up your dark, twisted alley.' - John Marrs, author of The One

'A Version of the Truth is engaging and sinister in places. Walter has created wonderfully authentic characters, and the writing is superb. Highly recommended.' - Elisabeth Carpenter, author of 99 Red Balloons

'Walter's debut is an assured piece of world-building, with characters both flawed and real, and a crescendo that sweeps you up then crashes you down. Unpredictable, clever & subtly twisted. Loved it.' - Helen Fields, author of Perfect Silence

'A dark and sometimes disturbing debut; a compelling story with credible characters. Walter emerges as a powerful new voice in the world of thriller writing.' - Diane Jeffrey, author of He Will Find You

“A 5* gripping psychological thriller.”

I raced through this in a weekend and by the end, I think I was suffering from adrenalin overdose - shouldn't have finished it at night! I had to calm back down to get to sleep! I've read both of BP... More

“Gripping”

Having never read anything by BP Walter, I didn't know what to expect when I picked this up but BP Walter is now firmly on my radar as an author well worth reading. This book had me hooked from the beginning and... More
