Jane Hughes ha un compagno che la ama, un lavoro in un centro per animali randagi e vive in un piccolo cottage nel Galles. È una donna realizzata e felice, come tante, ma la sua vita si fonda su una menzogna. Perché Jane Hughes non esiste. Cinque anni prima era partita per un viaggio in Nepal con le sue migliori amiche. Quattro ragazze molto diverse l’una dall’altra ma legate da un’amicizia di lunga data, capace di resistere agli anni dell’adolescenza e dell’università, seppure a volte in fragile equilibrio. Doveva essere la vacanza della vita, fatta di yoga, meditazione e splendidi panorami, una settimana che avrebbe dovuto trasformarsi in un ricordo meraviglioso, ma che si è rivelata un incubo. Perché da quel viaggio due delle quattro ragazze non sono più tornate.
Jane pensa di essersi lasciata tutto alle spalle, di poter ricominciare a vivere con una nuova identità, di dimenticare quello che è accaduto, ma qualcuno non ha intenzione di permetterglielo. Qualcuno che sa la verità su quella terribile settimana e che è tornato per tormentarla, per distruggere tutto quello che Jane ha faticosamente ricostruito.
Per difendere se stessa e le persone che ama, Jane dovrà affrontare l’incubo del suo passato e rivivere tutto quello che è successo tra quelle montagne…

I absolutely loved The Accident by C.L. Taylor, thought it was really taut clever fiction, so naturally I dived into The Lie with much gusto and excitement, waiting for that page turning feeling that is like an addiction to book addicts around the world. What I got was a mixed bag of a book to say t Leggi tutto

I... did not enjoy this at all. It felt way too unrealistic and predictable. I hated each of the characters for various reasons and could not connect with any of them, nor did I want to. The ending was zero percent satisfying, and in all honesty, the writing was bland. I never felt the suspense I wa Leggi tutto
The Lie is a really excellent follow up to “The Accident” a book I was enthralled by last year, clever and tense psychological thrillers both. In The Accident the focus was on parental relationships and secrets, here with “The Lie” it is all about friendship. Jane Hughes was not always Jane Hughes. I Leggi tutto
After reading "The Accident" which kept my blood pumping fast way into the night I have been silently stalking C L Taylor. From afar I have been waiting for this book to come out, and way hooooo, it came out on Net Galley. I also heard from her publishers in my email account, so hey, I guess they kn Leggi tutto
In the crowded psychological thriller market it can be tough to stand out, but CL Taylor succeeds here by mixing a zeitgeisty tale of friendship-gone-wrong and secrets from the past with Alex Garland's 90s blockbuster The Beach. This is a fast-paced, tense and atmospheric novel; a good old-fashioned Leggi tutto
