But he’s not the only person close to home who has something shocking to hide…

A suspenseful psychological thriller

Sister’s Ruby and Sophie lost their mother in the most horrendous of ways, murder. With the perpetrator behind bars, the sisters try to move on with their lives. But on the night of their mothers wake, the body of a women is found who has a connection to their mother’s murderer. What follows sets off a chain of events that not only tests the relationship between the sisters, but also everything they thought they knew about their mother’s murder.

One Good Lie is a tense psychological thriller and Jane Isaac’s first foray into the genre. Being a huge fan of her crime thriller series, I was super excited when I heard she was penning a book in this genre as it is my favourite. So, how did she do? She did so good! This is a suspenseful tale that takes you into a world of grief, misplaced trust, guilt and fear. A gripping page turner that does move on the slightly slower side to begin with, but ramps up making for a more thrilling second act with an outcome that had my head spinning. A great start to I hope many more books from Jane Isaac in this genre.
