The Trade Off from Sandie Jones - the author of the Reese Witherspoon Bookclub pick, The Other Woman - is an addictive, captivating psychological thriller about how far a journalist will go to get the story. Everyone has a price. What's yours?

Would you print a lie across a front page?

For Stella, Deputy Editor of The Globe, the choice has always been clear. There is no stone she will leave unturned in her pursuit of the best story. It’s what she’s built her reputation on.

For Jess, the Globe’s rookie reporter, the story stops when the truth does. But she knows that the dirty tricks of the tabloids will be hard to overturn.

And when the subject of the story Jess is working on pays the ultimate price, she suspects that the paper may have had more to do with it than they’re letting on...

What price would you pay to uncover the truth if someone is prepared to kill to bury it?

What an incredible read. Pammie was such a compelling and unique villain . . . It’s a definite must-read this summer!
A brilliant page-turner that will keep you guessing and guessing! Secrets, lies and deception…Sandie Jones is the queen of the twisty thriller and The Blame Game is no exception. I devoured this book and was kept guessing the whole way through. With every turn of the page, my suspicions changed and I had no idea which direction the story would take me. A terrifically compelling novel.
