SCAREFEST Review: The Truth-Teller's Lie by Sophie Hannah





Naomi Jenkins knows all about secrets: three years ago something so terrible happened to her that she's never told anyone about it. Now, Naomi has another secret: her relationship with the unhappily married Robert Haworth. When Robert vanishes without explanation, Naomi knows he must have come to harm. But the police are less convinced, particularly when Robert's wife insists he is not missing. In desperation, Naomi decides that if she can't persuade the detectives that Robert is in danger, she'll convince them that he is a danger to others. Naomi knows how to describe the actions of a psychopath; all she needs to do is dig up her own traumatic past. 
From Amazon

Sophie is a brilliant author who never ceases to amaze me.  The Truth-Tellers Lie is a like a roller-coaster ride.  The climb is high and the loops can make your stomach turn.  This book really makes you think and I think that's why her books are always so good.  You can't read one and not absorb the emotions of the characters.  It's great!
