Hello! Today I am very pleased to welcome you to JuliaPalooza for my stop on the Blog Tour for The Lies We Tell by Niki Mackay, which is available now (links below).
About the book
Last night I betrayed my husband.
This morning my daughter disappeared.
My husband may have forgiven my first mistake. But he will never forget this.
And so I have to find her.
Before it’s too late. For all of us.
Having really enjoyed hosting Niki Mackay‘s first Madison Attallee novel, I, Witness, I was delighted to be able to join this second tour as well.
The Lies We Tell is another gripping and thrilling mystery, this time focusing on a missing person. I think I enjoyed it even more than I, Witness. I love Madison and enjoyed seeing how her MA Investigations team has settled into its stride and – dare I say it – her personal life is on a more even keel.
The central mystery initially takes a sadly familiar track but is given a shot in the arm by central character Miriam’s particular circumstances, and takes this book to an even more disturbing level.
The story jumps back and forth in time to build a terrifying picture and web of intrigue. The flashbacks are not for the squeamish and the book goes to some extremely dark places. It is compelling throughout, however, the investigation gaining pace and racing towards a dark conclusion and its horrifying twist.
I have thoroughly enjoyed both of Niki Mackay‘s Madison Attallee books so far and I really hope there are more to come. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a British PI story and a dark and gritty mystery thriller.
Huge thanks to Orion for the ARC of The Lies We Tell and to Tracy Fenton for my spot on the blog tour.
