Complicit – Nicci French

Complicit is a gripping psychological thriller written by Nicci French, the pseudonym for the British writing duo Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. The novel explores the complexities of guilt, trauma, and the consequences of keeping secrets.

The story centers around Bonnie Graham, a successful documentary filmmaker who is living a seemingly perfect life in London with her husband, Mike, and their teenage daughter, Lily. However, when Bonnie receives a phone call from an old friend, Sonia, she is forced to confront a dark secret from her past.

Years ago, Bonnie and Sonia were involved in a political group that carried out illegal and violent acts in the name of social justice. The group’s activities eventually led to a tragedy that left a man dead, and Bonnie has spent years suppressing her guilt and trying to forget her involvement.

But when Sonia reveals that someone is threatening to expose their past, Bonnie’s carefully constructed world begins to unravel. As the threats escalate and Bonnie’s relationships with her family and friends become strained, she is forced to confront the truth about what she did and the impact it had on those around her.

Complicit is a masterful exploration of the psychological toll of guilt and the power of secrets. The novel is written in Nicci French’s signature style, with expertly crafted suspense and intricate character development. Bonnie is a complex and sympathetic protagonist, struggling to reconcile her past actions with her present-day life. Her relationship with Mike is particularly well-drawn, as they both grapple with the fallout of Bonnie’s past and struggle to maintain their trust and intimacy.

The novel is also notable for its exploration of political activism and the moral complexities that can arise when fighting for a cause. The characters in the novel are motivated by a genuine desire for justice, but their methods are ultimately flawed and destructive.

Overall, Complicit is a compelling and thought-provoking novel that will keep readers on the edge of their seats while also forcing them to confront difficult questions about morality and responsibility. Nicci French is a master of the psychological thriller genre, and Complicit is one of their best works.
