“A CRACKING THRILLER WITH HINTS AND AMBIGUITIES, TWISTS AND TURNS FROM ONE END TO THE OTHER…GO OUT AND SEE IT.” Nottingham Post
Mindgame is a mind bending psychological thriller from the pen of Anthony Horowitz – creator of Foyles War, the BBC’s New Blood, Alex Rider, the Sherlock Holmes novels House of Silk and Moriarty and the James Bond novel Trigger Mortis.
“THE GUESSING GAME IS STILL ON AS THE FINAL CURTAIN FALLS, MAKING THIS COMPELLING PLAY INTRIGUING AND CHILLING.” Derbyshire Times
When Mark Styler, a writer of glossy ‘true crime’ paperbacks, tries to get an interview with Easterman, a notorious serial killer, he has no idea what he’s walking into. First he has to get past Dr Farquhar, the quixotic head of Fairfields – the asylum where Easterman is kept.
But soon he discovers that nothing is what it seems. Who is the mysterious Borson? Where did he get the meat in the fridge? And why isn’t the skeleton in the closet?
“ANTHONY HOROWITZ’S DARK MASTERPIECE, DEFTLY DIRECTED BY KAREN HENSON, NOT ONLY QUESTIONS THE NATURE OF INSANITY BUT ALSO CHALLENGES THE NOTION OF REALITY ITSELF.” Worcester News
