Lie With Me

by Sabine Durrant


 

It starts with a lie. The kind we’ve all told – to a former acquaintance we can’t quite place but still, for some reason, feel the need to impress. The story of our life, embellished for the benefit of the happily married lawyer with the kids and the lovely home.

And the next thing you know, you’re having dinner at their house, and accepting an invitation to join them on holiday – swept up in their perfect life, the kind you always dreamed of…

Which turns out to be less than perfect. But by the time you’re trapped and sweating in the relentless Greek sun, burning to escape the tension all around you – by the time you start to realise that, however painful the truth might be, it’s the lies that cause the real damage…

… well, by then, it could just be too late.

"Brilliantly executed - I loved every page." - Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go
"A perfect thriller: clever, classy and shocking. I read it in one day." - Erin Kelly, author of The Poison Tree
"Grabs you from the first page and never lets you go. If, like me, you have been longing for a psycho-thriller of genius since you finished Gone Girl, then the wait is finally over. Sabine Durrant writes like a dream but weaves a story that is the stuff of modern nightmares. Is there a female writer who knows such a scary amount about the hearts and minds of men? I can't think of one."
- Tony Parsons, author of The Murder Bag
"Simmering with menace, and with a blisteringly taut and twisted plot. Simply superb." - Sarah Hilary, author of Someone Else's Skin
“Excellent psychological suspense from the former Guardian and Sunday Times journalist which kept me enthralled to the last page.” - Bookseller, Editor’s Choice
“This is a perfect mix of a summer read set in Greece and a edge-of-your-seat suspense novel…” - Red Magazine
“Truly stunning & original & rare. One of the most odious & compelling & fascinating narrator's ever.” - Claire Kendal, author of THE BOOK OF YOU
“Tightly plotted and taut with psychological suspense, I couldn't put down this gripping novel. In my mind, LIE WITH ME is set to be one of this summer's biggest hits.” - Lucy Clarke, author of THE SEA SISTERS
“I've been a huge fan from the start, but Durrant has taken her writing to a whole new level with Lie With Me. The word-perfect portrait of character leading to disaster, the unfurling dread, the ingenious plotting... I feel sick with envy that I didn't write it myself.” - Alex Marwood, author of THE DARKEST SECRET
“I was absolutely hooked…Sabine builds up the sense of unease with unbelievable finesse. This book simply sings.” - Jenny Blackhurst, author of HOW I LOST YOU
“Tense, darkly funny and morally complex. I wished Lie With Me wouldn't end.” - Tammy Cohen, author of WHEN SHE WAS BAD
“Devilshly dark and addictive.” - Paula Daly, author of KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE
