EMU INK - The Doll's House Review

 

Emu Ink Review

"Phillips doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of Dublin city… she shows us the sex crime, the drug culture, and the all too often abuse of power by those in government and authority, as well as the shields under which they operate. Her characters are well crafted, the plot is interesting and well executed, and at the risk of sounding cliché, a page turner. It’s gritty and it’s dark, but at the same time hopeful. Overall this is a brilliant read. I devoured it."

A killer of a thriller
The Doll’s House by Louise Phillips

The last twenty pages of The Doll’s House by Louise Phillips are a killer.

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.

I read a lot of thrillers and crime novels. This one is a pleasure. It’s the second novel by Louise 
Phillips and will, I think, establish her firmly as a significant player among Irish crime writers. Last 
year her debut novel, Red Ribbons, was shortlisted for the Best Irish Crime Novel of the Year. The 
Doll’s House, in my view, is much better and should certainly feature again.
