'THRILLING . . . SHIFTS LIKE QUICKSAND UNDER YOUR FEET' Erin Kelly, author of HE SAID/SHE SAID

'SLICK AND PACEY' Renee Knight, author of DISCLAIMER

'CHILLINGLY CLAUSTROPHOBIC ... BRILLIANT.' Karen Hamilton, author of THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND

A new standalone psychological thriller from Colette McBeth, whose dark, twisty and hugely compelling novels are beloved of writers like Paula Hawkins, Clare Mackintosh and Marian Keyes.

You could say it started with vanity. We believed we were special. But the truth is we were simply vulnerable.

Months after landing their dream job, five brilliant young minds are sent on a remote retreat.

But when one of them disappears, they're forced to question why they were brought there in the first place.

And for the first time in their lives, they realise too much knowledge can be deadly . . .

One of them is lying.
One of them is guilty.
No one is safe.

'TOPICAL, MORALLY AMBIGUOUS, WITH A PACE THAT NEVER LETS UP... BRILLIANT' Tammy Cohen, author of WHEN SHE WAS BAD

'COMBINES A FURIOUSLY TWISTY PLOT WITH UTTERLY BELIEVABLE CHARACTERS. A WINNER' Elly Griffiths, author of THE CROSSING PLACES

'BLOWN AWAY . . . GOOD LINE AFTER GREAT LINE, AND A BRILLIANT, TOTALLY CONTEMPORARY SETTING' Jane Casey, author of THE MAEVE KERRIGAN SERIES

Review quote

Colette McBeth is a queen of the psycological thriller, with each novel twistier than the last * Crime Club * A complex read with an unusual subject matter, this is about ambition, greed and love - the perfect combination for a riveting read! * Peterborough Today * Extremely thought-provoking ... my interest was piqued by the initial set up, and maintained throughout. A twisty plot ... Recommended for those wanting a modern and complex thriller * Jo's Book Blog * You're in for a roller-coaster ride, with the tension ramped up and a twist round every terrifying corner. * Heat * I loved how chillingly claustrophobic this book is. The corporate 'bonding' was scarily relatable and it tapped into a lot of my fears, as I'm sure it will others! The steady increase of their moral conundrums is perfectly paced ... Brilliant. * Karen Hamilton, author of The Perfect Girlfriend * Beautifully written, with characters that leap off the page. * Sinead Crowley, author of Can Anybody Help Me? * Call Me a Liar is a twisting, pacy novel which takes a cast of brilliantly drawn characters and puts them through the wringer. Tense and complex, the story is rich with sharp observation, pitch-perfect dialogue, and the skilful writing we've come to expect from Colette. Another great story from one of my favourite writers * Amanda Jennings, author of In Her Wake * Topical, morally ambiguous and with a pace that never lets up, it's a blistering thriller written with Colette's usual deftness of touch. Brilliant! * Tammy Cohen, author of When She Was Bad * Blown away by the writing in Call Me a Liar . . . good line after great line and a brilliant, totally contemporary setting with bright young things way out of their depth * Jane Casey, author of the Maeve Kerrigan series * I loved this book ... It combines a furiously twisty plot with utterly believable characters. A winner * Elly Griffiths, author of The Crossing Places * A slick and pacey thriller that will keep you reading through the night * Renee Knight, author of Disclaimer * A thrilling look at the dark side of the bright young things... shifts like quicksand under your feet * Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said *
