Charlotte wants to start fresh. She wants to forget her past, forget prison and, most of all, forget Sean. But old habits die hard. Despite the ankle monitor she must wear as part of her parole agreement and frequent visits to her therapist, she soon finds herself sliding back toward the type of behavior that sent her to prison in the first place. The further down that path she goes, however, the closer she gets to the crime that put her in prison all those years ago. And that’s the one memory she can’t face. Until, one day, Sean tracks her down.
One More Lie is a pacy and addictive psychological thriller, with themes of memory and responsibility, following Charlotte and Sean as they attempt to put the past behind them.
There’s a childlike quality to Charlotte and a confrontational layer to Sean and the author keeps you wondering about where the responsibility lies for the horrific events of years ago.
This is a novel of layered personality, nature and nurture and is cleverly plotted to keep things edgy until the truth is revealed.
Great writing and great storytelling- like The Innocent Wife this is a read in one sitting addictive page turner.
