Revue de presse

Chilling, mesmerising. Gets under your skin and stays with you (The Doll's House) (Niamh O'Connor)

(The Doll's House is) a gripping, suspenseful story peopled with well-drawn characters (Irish Independent 2013-08-10)

A real page turner ... Phillips' book (The Doll's House) is laced with tension and gradually builds to a thrilling finale. What's particularly great about the novel is the author's fearlessness in delving into the darker recesses of the Irish capital (The Irish Post 2013-08-10)

[The Doll's House] is every bit as good as her debut, Red Ribbons, this time with much more of a slant towards a psychological thriller which fans of Sophie Hannah and SJ Watson will devour (Writing.ie 2013-08-10)

Phillips doesn't shy away from the harsh realities of Dublin city ... Her characters are well-crafted, the plot interesting and well-executed and, at the risk of sounding clich?, a page turner. It's gritty and it's dark, but at the same time hopeful. [The Doll's House] is a brilliant read. I devoured it. (Emu Ink 2013-08-10)

If you enjoy the psychological thrillers of writers in the same vein as Sophie Hannah, Erin Kelly et al, [The Doll's House] sits very comfortably. I will definitely be seeking out Phillips' first novel Red Ribbons on the strength of this one (Raven Crime Reads 2013-08-10)

A cracker of a novel, highly recommended, a phenomenal debut (Red Ribbons) (Arlene Hunt 2013-08-10)

Red Ribbons is an absolutely brilliant book ... spine-tingling with loads of twists and turns. A debut novel from a great writer who will soon be up there with the likes of Patricia Cornwell (Stafford FM 2013-08-10)

Dark, spooky but believable (Irish Examiner 2013-08-10)

Red Ribbons has been getting rave reviews, especially for the insight it offers into the emotions of a mother who has lost her child (Irish Mail on Sunday 2013-08-10)

The pace of this book is spot on, revealing information from the killer's past bit by bit to keep the reader turning the pages (Red Ribbons) (Novelicious 2013-08-10)

Présentation de l'éditeur

**Winner of Crime Fiction Book of the Year Award (BGE Irish Book Awards 2013)**

The past is waiting...
Thirty-five years ago Adrian Hamilton drowned. At the time his death was deemed a tragic accident but the exact circumstances remain a mystery.
His daughter Clodagh now visits a hypnotherapist in an attempt to come to terms with her past, and her father's death. As disturbing childhood memories are unleashed, memories of another tragedy begin to come to light.
Meanwhile criminal psychologist Dr Kate Pearson is called to assist in a murder investigation after a body is found in a Dublin canal. And when Kate digs beneath the surface of the killing, she discovers a sinister connection to the Hamilton family.
Time is running out for Clodagh and Kate.
And the killer has already chosen his next victim . . .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A killer of a thriller 31 août 2013
Par Carolann copland - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The last twenty pages of The Doll's House by Louise Phillips are a killer. The conflict between longing to prolong this excellent novel, and the desperation of finding out what was to happen and why, is agonising. The characters became a part of my life for days and I know that I will carry their stories around with me for a long time to come.
In the opening line, Phillips prepares us for the strangeness of an ordinary life which is to become extraordinary. Our introduction to Clodagh brings the reader up close and personal with her. We admire her and want to admonish her in the same breath but the overall feeling is a wish to protect her. The first meeting with the murderer immediately brings us into his mixed up head. Phillips words are sparse and effective. Nothing is wasted.
Making the spine tingling journey through The Doll's House with criminal psychologist Dr. Kate Pearson and DI O'Connor, brought me back to their explosive contribution to this author's first book Red Ribbons.
I said that Phillip's debut novel was thrilling; promising a long line of bestselling crime writing ahead. I didn't lie. This delivers.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good read 6 janvier 2014
Par Eliza Green - Publié sur Amazon.com

A solid crime outing from Louise Phillips. However, a few things gave me pause.

There were too many voices in the book and it was difficult to follow everyone. Clodagh's recollection of certain events was dragged out so much it felt like padding by the end of the book. Kate Pearson and O'Connor, two main characters in the series, were not fleshed out at all, at least not for me.

On the plus side, the detail is precise and while I'm no expert on regression or crime, you can tell the author has done her homework.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A taut and gripping read... 27 novembre 2013
Par Raven - Publié sur Amazon.com

Despite Louise Phillips' first book Red Ribbons receiving some acclaim and having been shortlisted for the Best Irish Crime Novel of the Year, I must admit that she is a new author to me. Always keen to discover new Irish crime fiction, I have once again joined the party late having read The Doll's House- the second in her series featuring criminal psychologist Kate Pearson and DI O'Connor, aiming to unravel the implications of a decades old suspicious death in relation to the investigation of a current one...

I would say from the outset that if you enjoy the psychological thrillers of writers in the same vein as Sophie Hannah, Erin Kelly, et al that this novel sits very comfortably within this genre. With an exceptionally strong female protagonist pit against the introspective and grizzled detective, Phillips brings their professional and personal relationship to the fore with both characters being the lynchpin to the central plot. It is so important for a writer to construct credible characters that you genuinely feel engaged with, to counterbalance the demands of the plot, and this balance is difficult to achieve with sometimes one of the two falling into the shadows. However, Phillips achieves this with aplomb, and I felt totally at home with both Pearson and O'Connor from the beginning and enjoyed the interesting dynamics at play in their relationship and the events of Pearson's personal life that unfold throughout the book as a wife and mother. Likewise, the surrounding cast tainted by the murder investigation proved an engaging study in the exploration of family and the ties of loyalty, with the character of Clodagh- a woman seeking to uncover the truth of her past through regression-being a particularly effective protagonist in the central storyline.

As Phillips skilfully intertwines the timelines of a thirty-odd year suspicious death with the very contemporary murder investigation, the actions moves swiftly and seamlessly between the two, and explores how past events get suppressed in the memory of the characters so enmeshed in the current murder case. This for me was the most satisfying aspect of the book as the exploration of the human psyche and the suppression of memories by the consciousness loom large within the plot. We see how criminal psychologist Kate Pearson delves into the psychological impulses of a killer attempting to unravel the sinister events perpetuating themselves in a tangled web of deceit and murder. Likewise, the notion of the psychological repression of memory being explored through the story of Clodagh, adds another interesting dimension to the whole affair. Apparently an overheard conversation about mental hypnosis, sowed the seed for Phillips' exploration of the subject initially, and she has even attempted regression herself to see how hypnosis can return you to a state of pure memory, but how the subconscious tries to bar the way to realising this. Hence, the enjoyment of this novel to me was not only in the traditional remit of crime fiction to follow the investigation of a murder, but to bring to my attention a new facet, in this case the world of the subconscious, that enriched the reading experience overall. I will definitely be seeking out Phillips' first novel Red Ribbons on the strength of this one, and am delighted to have discovered a new and highly readable author.
