Praise for The Lies We Tell

  • Cracking thriller and a great female protagonist. Swearing, smoking, rock-music loving (and not neurotic or passive!) My kind of woman. - C.J. Tudor, author of The Chalk Man

  • I was swept away by this punchy, pacy thriller with its sharp characterisation and confident plotting. Idevoured it in a single day. I particularly loved Madison's fabulously chain-smoking, hyper-feminine sharpness. There were so many things done well here - the presentation of domestic abuse, dysfunctional families, the uneven dynamic of female friendships that border on bullying - so much to enjoy. So looking forward to the next one. - Helen Callaghan, author of Dear Amy

  • Tough and uncompromising, I, Witness had me totally gripped. I'm looking forward to hearing more from PI Madison Attalee. - Alex Lake, author of Killing Kate, After Anna and Copy Cat

  • An absolutely gripping thriller founded on the horror of familial abuse and a great, flawed, female PI. There will be more Madison Attalee, I hope. - Dame Jenni Murray

  • Totally engaging, fast-paced and edgy ... completely captivating. I, Witness kept me guessing till the very end. Pick this book up if you're after a page-turner with attitude. - Elle Croft, author of The Guilty Wife

  • I couldn't put I,Witness down. A hugely accomplished novel with a dark, sad story at its heart - the characters are so well drawn that I felt every twist along with them as Mackay expertly manipulates the reader. With a wonderful, chain-smoking and perfume-spraying private detective driving the narrative, this is a 2018 must-read. - Phoebe Morgan, author of The Doll House

  • Cutting-edge gripping. - Sam King, author of The Choice

  • Had me hooked within two pages, it has every bit as much appeal as some of the bestsellers of the last few years, like Girl on the Train. - Robert Scragg, author of What Falls Between the Cracks
