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.

A slick and pacey thriller that will keep you reading through the night * Renee Knight, author of Disclaimer *
I loved this book ... It combines a furiously twisty plot with utterly believable characters. A winner * Elly Griffiths, author of The Crossing Places *
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 *
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 *
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 *
Beautifully written, with characters that leap off the page. * Sinead Crowley, author of Can Anybody Help Me? *
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 *
You're in for a roller-coaster ride, with the tension ramped up and a twist round every terrifying corner. * Heat *
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 *
A complex read with an unusual subject matter, this is about ambition, greed and love - the perfect combination for a riveting read! * Peterborough Today *
Colette McBeth is a queen of the psycological thriller, with each novel twistier than the last * Crime Club *

“Twisty, complex and clever”
I've really enjoyed Colette McBeth's writing in the past, in particular An Act of Silence which I thought was brilliant. Call Me A Liar has a different feel to it, probably due to the subject matter, but... More
I have to be honest here and say I struggled a bit with this book at the start. I was finding it a tad slow but after a couple of chapters the pace Increases and I couldn’t turn the pages quick enough. . I loved it.
