LIE WITH ME
BY SABINE DURRANT, HACHETTE.
Sabine Durrant is quickly proving herself to be a psychological thriller writer with real clout. In Lie With Me, Paul, a down-and-out writer, bumps into an old university acquaintance in a bookshop and fabricates a simple lie to embellish his unimpressive life story. What ensues is a dinner invitation, followed by a suggestion to join the family on a Greek holiday. Paul can’t believe his luck. It seems the only price he must pay is the stream of lies he keeps spouting. Yet the Greek island hides a sinister story of its own and as his lies begin to catch up with him, he’s soon left wondering if the web he is caught in is one of his own making, or actually part of someone else’s grander design. Lie With Me is a thriller with a deeply unlikeable narrator and a true twist in the tale, gripping from start to finish. HR
