The Memory Game is a haunting psychological thriller from the top-ten best-selling author Nicci French.
You remember an idyllic childhood. But your memory is deceitful. And possibly deadly...
When a skeleton is unearthed in the Martellos' garden, Jane Martello is shocked to learn it's that of her childhood friend Natalie, who went missing 25 years ago.
Encouraged by a therapist to recover lost memories, Jane hopes to find out what really took place when she was a child - and what happened to Natalie. But in learning the truth about her and Natalie's past, is Jane putting her own future at terrible risk?

I enjoy mysteries, science fiction, Stephen King, and some fantasy novels. Now and again I like a biography and a bit of history. No romance!
I would just think I had things figured out and then suddenly I would get a surprise. Great plotting!
The look into the past and the surprises make this one a bit like reading a Kate Morton book.
This is the only one I have listened to but I enjoyed it very much. I would like to hear more from her.
I agree with the last reviewer, in that this story was pretty boring. The main problem I had was the fact that it really didn't get into much of the mystery until the very end of the book. The rest of the book was just too detailed about everything outside of the actual plot. It wasn't until the very end of the book that the story got back on topic and discussed the plot. Too much detail about off-topic stuff and not enough plot.
This was a good story but not the best I have read from this author.
I would read another Nicci French novel.
"Hard to care by the end-usually love Nicci French"
Not really time worth spent. The story seemed implausible, as if it was merely a vehicle for the authors to examine the concept of false memory syndrome. The characters weren't likeable, particularly the main character, Jane.
Not good at all. I kept listening to it because I'd always enjoyed Nicci French books in the past so hoped it would get better. It didn't really.
Probably the final scene.
I really would rather watch paint dry than sit through the film of this book.
I'm glad I've listened to other Nicci French books and enjoyed them immensely. If this is your first Nicci French book, don't let it put you off the authors - everything else they've done has been first-rate.
"Long drawn out but worth it.."
Not the best Nicci French story, taking longer to play out the narrative than others, but worthwhile if you stick with it. Excellent narrator.
This is a good story. It kept my attention throughout. I was disappointed by how the ending was presented to us. I saw it coming, which is unusual for me, but the way it was revealed left me feeling deflated. It is an exciting book though and would be good company for long journeys or boring housework.
This book was a surprisingly good one. The narration is excellent and the story kept me enthralled to the last word. Excellent.
Harriet Walters reading of this novel is superb one of the best read audiobooks I`ve listened to
"Great read outstanding narration!"
Really enjoyed the book didn't quite see all the twists and turns coming. The performance by Harriet Walters was for me almost the best thing about it. I love her raspy tones but at times her different characterisations were so good I forgot it was the same narrator! Superb!
