One Good Lie
by Jane Isaac
One Good Lie is a brilliant psychological thriller. It’s quite a chilling read. One which made me wonder about everyone at one point or another.
The story centres around sisters, Ruby and Sophie, whose mother has recently been murdered. Sophie is a more fragile character and Ruby worries about her but takes comfort in the support she receives from her boyfriend, Ewan. He’s a comforting presence and is good with Sophie’s small children too.
However, on the night of their mother’s wake another woman is found murdered. It’s difficult to shake the feeling that the two murders may well be connected. Their mother’s murderer is behind bars though so none of it makes any sense.
I found myself becoming very suspicious of Ewan, especially when he begins to try to drive a wedge between the sisters. I found Sophie’s willingness to believe Ewan over her sister quite believable and my heart went out to Ruby. These situations can be so frustrating for those on the outside and this certainly added more tension to the story.
I also found myself becoming suspicious of certain other characters, but I don’t really know why. Just an underlying feeling I had as the story progressed. I couldn’t wait to find out how it was all going to pan out. I could never have imagined the turn the story was going to take!!
I highly recommend!
