The Henry Experiment is a nail-biting domestic thriller in which motherly Anna pits herself against the weird and possiby dangerous Professor Henderson, who believes that boys should be toughened up from the age of seven. Caught in the middle is the professor’s son Henry who is befriended and protected by Anna as he carries out his father’s increasingly hard demands. The professor gives his account in emails which descend from academic theory to self-pity and self-revalation. The final acts played out on the Heath are tense and terrifying.

A smart, compelling literary thriller that asks big questions about our current attitudes to family and childhood.
— Maggie O’Farrell, novelist
