I was absolutely hooked...Sabine builds up the sense of unease with unbelievable finesse. This book simply sings -- Jenny Blackhurst, author of How I Lost You A tremendously engrossing, unnerving story...delivers suspense from the outset and dark jokes and surprises throughout -- Mark Lawson A compelling, clever, claustrophobic read with a brilliantly executed anti-hero - I loved Lie With Me! -- Angela Clarke, author of Follow Me An exceptional novel that seduced me from the first page and tightened its grip with every chapter. I'm not sure it has released me even now. -- Claire Kendal, author of The Book of You Tense, darkly funny and morally complex. I wished Lie With Me wouldn't end. -- Tamar Cohen, author of When She Was Bad I absolutely loved it: claustrophobic, gripping, and beautifully written with a growing sense of foreboding until the unexpected, final twist. -- Claire Douglas, author of The Sisters Simmering with menace, and with a blisteringly taut and twisted plot. Simply superb. -- Sarah Hilary, author of Someone Else's Skin Grabs you from the first page and never lets you go. If, like me, you have been longing for a psycho-thriller of genius since you finished Gone Girl, then the wait is finally over. -- Tony Parsons, author of The Murder Bag I was intrigued, unsettled and utterly engrossed from the very first page...so beautifully written and intelligently constructed -- Laura Barnett, author of The Versions of Us The word-perfect portrait of character leading to disaster, the unfurling dread, the ingenious plotting... I feel sick with envy that I didn't write it myself. -- Alex Marwood, author of The Darkest Secret A clever, engaging thriller to frantically binge-read as the tension mounts and all the subtle clues that Durrant has skilfully hidden begin to reveal themselves * Red Magazine * Enormous fun, a psychological thriller worthy of Ruth Rendell or Patricia Highsmith.... The way the narration keeps us guessing is masterly * Guardian * Ingenious plotting, fine characterisation and assured pacing * The Sunday Times * Tightly plotted and taut with psychological suspense, I couldn't put down this gripping novel. In my mind, Lie With Me is set to be one of this summer's biggest hits. -- Lucy Clarke, author of Last Seen If you've had a hole in your literary life since finishing Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, this is the book to fill it * Grazia * An unsettling, disturbing but utterly brilliant, gripping read with a terrific twist * Sunday Mirror * I doubt there will be a better beach read out this summer * Daily Express * A perfect thriller: clever, classy and shocking. I read it in one day. -- Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said A sizzling tale of deceit, betrayal and entrapment that is extraordinarily well-crafted and utterly gripping - a stunning summer read * Daily Mail * Brilliantly executed - I loved every page. -- Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go
