Book Review - The Lie by C.L.Taylor

The LieThe Lie by C.L. Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I launched into this book with gusty and it certainly grips from the start. It has all the hallmarks of a good page-turner: a clear plot, conflict in almost every scene, two distinct timelines that are engaging and every chapter ending in a mini cliff-hanger.

There are two stories running alongside each other (present v past), which works well. In the present 'Jane' (aka Emma) is knocked sideways when she's contacted anonymously by someone from her disturbed past that she's tried desperately to leave behind. In the past (five years earlier), the narrative gradually reveals the ways in which a retreat in Nepal she went on with three friends turned into a holiday from hell. Before long we see why Emma was so keen to move on from those events, where all her friendships appeared to collapse and she faced jeopardy at every turn. It's a book about trust, spiteful jealousies and secrets - an easy read - I had flu and whipped through it.
