Reviewing a psychological thrillers is always a bit difficult to do without revealing spoilers, (especially if the reviewer is like me and doesn’t read very many of the genre) but some are more difficult than others. Berlin Syndrome, the debut novel of Melbourne author Melanie Joosten, relies for its impact on the reader’s gradual realisation that things are not what they seem. So I’m not going to tell you much about this book at all except that you ought not read it late at night and not at all if you are claustrophobic.
