MEDIA REVIEWS
Action-packed, high-stakes suspense, brilliant characters. A series to watch. * Mason Cross *
A fast and ingenious thriller that pits the brilliantly addictive Forrester and Davies against a tense and chillingly real Russian conspiracy. Even better, Tell Me a Lie combines all the excitement of spooks, fast cars, guns and helicopters with brave and compassionate female characters who all pass the Bechdel Test with flying colours! I'm full of admiration. * Isabelle Grey *
High-octane, Jason Bourne game-playing Brit noir * Jack Grimwood, author of the bestselling Moskva *
Brilliantly and intricately plotted, C J Carver has produced another explosive read. Don't miss it. -- Lizzie Hayes * Mystery People *
An adrenalin-rush of a novel with plenty of heart, Tell Me a Lie is a page-turning thrill * Mick Herron *
Lots of sub plots and intrigue and for large portions of the book I was hooked... * Worcester Source *
Beautifully paced, occasionally breathtaking, always bang on the money, Tell Me A Lie is brilliant beginning middle and end...The plotting is tight and cohesive and absolutely gripping - a thriller with heart and soul whose resolution is not easy to grasp...Overall blinking fantastic * Liz Loves Books *
Fast, smart and furious: a breakneck adventure that will have you clinging on by your fingertips. CJ Carver is one of the best thriller writers working today * Tom Harper, author of BLACK RIVER *
'Do I recommend this book? Hell Yeah, I do! One of my #TopReads of 2017, I have added this author's books to my massive TBR as she is one to watch! If you want a crime thriller, with non-stop action and oozing suspense, click the link below and grab a copy of this #MustRead book, stat!' * Crime Book Junkie *
'It's hard to explain the breadth and the largeness of this plot, which is why when it all comes together I might've let out an audible ohhh or several of them...' * Editing Everything *
Utterly gripping the story moves along at a cracking pace with many twists and turns. There are some brutal scenes that had me gasping in horror. C J Carver is the master of complex plots. As the several threads began to knit together I found myself rapidly turning the pages as the tension mounted and the story hurtled towards a heart-stopping climax. Action packed, with brilliantly drawn characters, to say this book is 'highly recommended' is inadequate 'must read' is a nearer the mark. * Promoting Crime *
'I was absolutely hooked reading this...before you know it you have devoured half the book.' * Charlene Jess Blog *
'This is an extraordinarily tense clever thriller. Don't expect to sleep, because this is unputdownable. Great stuff, from an international thriller writer of inordinate skill.' * Frost magazine *
'this book was a rip roaring, unputdownable roller coaster of a book. The characters are superbly written...' * Coffee and a Kindle *
'an international spy thriller; that involves power, corruption and a spot of murder and torture. I adored every second, every moment in the adventures of Dan and Lucy. This is fast paced, that at times your head will spin trying to keep up! In my eyes, C. J. Carver can do no wrong. Fabulous. Extremely fabulous. Read this series. It's the best! Recommended!' * Northern Crime book blog *
'One of my #TopReads of 2016, I have added this author's books to my massive TBR as she is one to watch! If you want a crime thriller, with non-stop action and oozing suspense, grab a copy of this #MustRead book, stat!' * Crime Book Junkie *
'Award-winning author CJ Carver is on top form in the second instalment of her Dan Forrester series, international, fast-paced, all-action spy thrillers that pack a powerful punch and have an all-star cast of eclectic characters. Packed with explosive action, dark deeds, evil baddies and white-knuckle suspense, and with a terrific twist in the tail, Tell Me A Lie is sheer entertainment all the way.' * Lancashire Evening Post *
'This is one of the fastest-moving, most entertaining thrillers I have read for a long time.' -- NJ Cooper * Book Oxygen *
Tell Me A Lie is yet another top notch thriller from CJ Carver. This book has it all - brilliant characters, family secrets, an international conspiracy, a police investigation and a twisty turny plot that keeps you guessing all the way through. Tell Me A Lie features a highly original modern plot but has a classic spy thriller feel to it too, with more than a hint of James Bond.I highly recommend this series! * Off The Shelf Book Reviews *
In this thriller by the author of last year's dazzling debut, Spare Me the Truth, amnesia-struck agent Dan Forrester and gutsy PC Lucy Davies return to the fray. This time they face a Russian oligarch, deal with a gruesome murder, and come up against danger closer to home. The thinking woman's whodunnit. * The Lady *
A good thriller * New Zealand Herald *
this is a taut and intricately plotted storyline that kept me hooked until the end. With an international conspiracy, an intriguing investigation and a brilliant cast of characters, I found it really hard to put this one down. A multi-layered and well-paced thriller, Tell Me A Lie is an excellent addition to the Dan Forrester series and I can't wait to catch up with the third instalment! * Novel Deelights *
