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
