I've read all this author's books so far. I loved his first book. The second was also very good. I was a bit disappointed in the third, just because it unexpectedly had elements of sci-fi; a genre I don't read. It was still a good read, yet not really my genre. This new book, 'Playing Nice' seems back to top form, even from the first chapters, and I was glued to it all the way through. It was all believable, not far-fetched, and everything tied up, producing a satisfying ending-you weren't left thinking, what happened there, after all that.

The book is set in London and involves two families. Both had premature babies. Two years later, it came to light there had been a terrible mix-up at the neonatal unit. After a friendly start, things become very difficult, and soon there is suspense and unease.

This was such a good book. Fast-moving, told in brief chapters. So easy to get straight into. And so hard to come out of! JP Delaney has excelled himself with this cracking read.
