Dan has worked hard for the perfect life. He has a loving wife, beautiful kids, a fabulous home and is a successful businessman. 

One afternoon Dan steps onto his usual train and sees the waitress who served him an hour earlier. It all seemed so normal, but it was the most dreadful mistake. Four stops later, Dan is a criminal who has lost everything. He’d only just met her, so why did she destroy him—and why did she say ‘Sorry’? 

Dan battles through a web of lies and deceit to clear his name and win his life back, but first, he needs to find out who plotted his downfall.

If you have seen the movie Sliding Doors, Dishonoured is a story that is based on a similar principle of what happens if we do or don’t make a particular choice. It brings to mind the question of how much of our lives are predestined versus events following on the whims of life.

Jem Tugwell has created a very clever and smart psychological thriller that had me so caught up in its web, I could not untangle myself until I had turned that last page, where it left me breathless and shaken to my core. A thrilling mind bender that will stay with me for a long time to come.

I desperately want to describe to you the emotional roller coaster that this took me on but, it is impossible for me to do so without giving key elements of the story away. Jem Tugwell has done an exceptional job of creating a story and set of characters, that without me even realising, had me connected to in a really unique way.

This is my first book I have read from Jem Tugwell and from my view, as his first foray into the psychological thriller genre, I think he has nailed it! The writing is sharp, the characters memorable and with writing that is so flawlessly engaging, makes Jem Tugwell an exciting new voice to definitely keep tabs on in this genre.

Dishonoured is a fast paced psychological thriller that challenged my mind and got under my skin! It is addictive, chilling, gripping and with it’s jaw dropping outcome, makes this a must read for 2021. It was my absolute pleasure to read and review Dishonoured which I highly recommend.

Thank you to Jem Tugwell and Serpentine Books for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Dishonoured, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK, but will post to Waterstones & Foyles if also available.
