Tell Me Lies

J.P. Pomare

Write Review

Rated 0

Thriller / suspense

The number-one bestselling thriller from the award-winning author of THE WRONG WOMAN and THE LAST GUESTS

'There's no doubt about it: Pomare is a master of the carefully constructed, impeccably paced psycho-thriller' THE AUSTRALIAN

Psychologist Margot Scott has a picture-perfect life: a nice house in the suburbs, a husband, two children and a successful career.

On a warm spring morning, Margot approaches one of her clients on a busy train platform. He is looking down at his phone, with his duffel bag in hand. As the train approaches, she slams into his back and he falls in front of the front carriage as it hurtles down the tracks.

Margot's clients don't always tell the truth, but now one lie could cost her the ultimate price: her family and freedom.
