#BlogTour The Lies I Tell by Joel Hames

The Blurb



From the bestselling author of Dead North, a tense, claustrophobic psychological thriller perfect for fans of Lucy Foley, Claire McGowan and Clare Mackintosh.

Meet Polly.
Meet Emily.
Meet Belinda.

They’re all me.

My name is Lisa and I’m an identity thief. If I’m not inside your system stealing your money, I’ve probably already stolen it. I’m your friend. I’m a thief. I’m gone. I’m in control.

Only now, the tables have been turned. I’m in danger. My son is in danger. And I don’t know where that danger’s coming from.

Any friend.
Any enemy.
Any stranger.
Anyone from the past I’ve been trying to outrun for years.


My Thoughts

Psychological thrillers are my favourite genre and so I was really keen to read ‘The Lies I Tell’ as, at first glance, it seemed different from others I have read. I can safely say it was very different and was highly relevant to what is going on in the world today with everyone’s social media presence and the increase in identity fraud. It was extremely engaging and made me think about my own online presence.

To fully appreciate and enjoy the story I think you need to have an interest in social media and computers or it might go over your head a bit. It appeared that the author knows about computers and identity theft or had simply done his homework as I was drawn in by the knowledge of the main character Lisa, whom I felt sorry for, but also felt she deserved to be punished for her crimes.

Overall, it was an enjoyable read and one that drew me in and kept me guessing.
