Claire Wright likes to play other people.
A British drama student, in New York without a green card, Claire takes the only job she can get: working for a firm of divorce lawyers, posing as an easy pick-up in hotel bars to entrap straying husbands.
When one of her targets becomes the subject of a murder investigation, the police ask Claire to use her acting skills to help lure their suspect into a confession. But right from the start, she has doubts about the part she's being asked to play. Is Patrick Fogler really a killer . . . Or the only decent husband she's ever met? And is there more to this set-up than she's being told?
And that's when Claire realises she's playing the deadliest role of her life . . .

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Some books are meant to be devoured in one sitting. J.P. Delaney’s follow-up to The Girl Before (also highly recommended) is the sort of psychological thriller that immediately lures you into its web. At the story’s heart is Claire Wright, a British drama student employed by a New York law firm to entrap cheating husbands—and a brilliantly unpredictable narrator. Delaney had our head spinning, consistently unsure about whom we could trust: Claire? The suspect? Our own instincts? Reading Believe Me was a lot of fun.
Had potential at the beginning...then got a bit lost and strange. Have read better.
I enjoyed The Girl Before, but this offering was trying too hard to be something it wasn’t.
Who’s telling the truth?
Who’s the murderer?
Great beginning, good premise, but then it just gets lost.
