I’m going blog tour crazy this week as I’m taking part in 3 which is the most in ages. Because I’ve read Jane Isaac’s work before, when I picked up The Lies Within and started reading, I thought it would be yet another good police procedural but oh my word this book was brilliant!!
The more I got into it the more I was gripped and couldn’t wait to find out what the hell was going to happen and who were the goodies and who were the baddies! I was totally convinced that I knew which way it was going yet how wrong I was! It swerved all over the place and I really didn’t know whether I was coming or going!
It was brilliantly written with so much tension that I felt like jumping up and shouting at the characters. And the pace was perfect! I couldn’t turn the pages quickly enough to find out what was going to happen. And the ending! Wow! That’s all I’m going to say.
I love a book which questions what you would do in a particular situation and this one sure did that all the way through! I felt every single emotion of Grace and wanted to go round to her house and make her feel better!
It was an absolutely brilliant read, one of those that makes you shut out the world outside and think about nothing else for hours!
A thoroughly entertaining, superbly written psychological crime thriller.
