A combination of psychological thriller, intriguing mystery and action adventure.
“Jane Hughes has a loving partner, a job in an animal sanctuary and a tiny cottage in rural Wales. She’s happier than she’s ever been but her life is a lie. Jane Hughes does not really exist..,Jane has tried to put the past behind her but someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Jane and everything she loves…”
I read The Lie in just a couple of days and as I’m a slow reader that shows me that I was hooked. The action switches between present day Jane in her new life and the events of 5 years earlier. The flashback chapters build up into a fast paced and horrifying story that I can’t really hint at without spoilers. The present day events are skilfully developed with the suspense levels cranked up to the maximum.
Recommended for readers who like a well woven plot and gritty (at times shocking) writing.
