I never Lie:
Pub Date 11 Jun 2018
Is she the next victim? Or is she the culprit…?
Alex South is a high-functioning alcoholic, teetering on the brink of oblivion. Her career as a television journalist is hanging by a thread since a drunken on-air rant. But when a series of murders occurs within a couple of miles of her East London home, she's given another chance to prove herself.
Alex thinks she can control the drinking, but soon she finds gaping holes in her memory, and wakes to find she’s done things she can’t recall. As the story she’s covering starts to creep into her own life, is Alex a danger only to herself – or to others?
This gripping psychological thriller is perfect for fans of Fiona Barton, B A Paris and Clare Mackintosh.
Whilst I thought it interesting to to see the lies told to
herself by Alex about how she wasn’t an alcoholic, I found the overall story
too slow to capture my interest.
Alex clearly thought she was in control even though it was
obvious she wasn’t and she ignored her black holes in her memory and the
blackouts she experienced. And ignored the fact that she just needed a ‘little
drop’ to function.
The decline of an alcoholic and the damage they do to their
nearest and dearest and others they come into contact with is shown by the
story but I still didn’t manage to
finish reading to the end.
