Truth Games

(2009)
A novel by

 
 
After the hippies and before the yuppies, between the advent of The Pill and the onset of AIDS, between the 'summer of love' and the 'winter of discontent', the newest game in town was sex.

In mid-seventies London a group of friends play a dangerous game of open marriages, secrets and lies. "It's only sex, Ann. It won't hurt us," claims Lois, beautiful, talented and determined to get whatever or whoever she wants without being held back by her long-suffering, academic husband, Hugh. In homes and offices, at parties, on holidays, wherever they are, sex is there for the taking. But bed-hopping carries a price. Can love be free? Truth Games bares all. It's fast, funny and sexy, but as the summer heat increases, stakes are raised and consequences have to be faced...

Bobbie Darbyshire lives in Clapham.
