THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

This was no accident...

Haunting, compelling, this psychological thriller will have you hooked. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl and Daughter.

I know your name's not really Jane Hughes . . .

Jane Hughes has a loving partner, a job in an animal sanctuary and a tiny cottage in rural Wales. She's happier than she's ever been but her life is a lie. Jane Hughes does not really exist.

Five years earlier Jane and her then best friends went on holiday but what should have been the trip of a lifetime rapidly descended into a nightmare that claimed the lives of two of the women.

Jane has tried to put the past behind her but someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won't stop until they've destroyed Jane and everything she loves...

WOMAN MAGAZINE

Claire Frost, Fabulous Magazine

`Fast-paced, tense and atmospheric, a guaranteed bestseller'
Mark Edwards

''A gripping page-turner full of intrigue and suspense."
Lucy Clarke

`Creepy, horrifying and twisty. C L Taylor is extremely good at writing stories in which you have no idea which characters you can trust, and the result is intriguing and scary and extremely gripping.'
Julie Cohen, 2014 Richard and Judy Summer Book Club Pick

`The Lie is absolutely brilliant - The Beach, only darker, more thrilling and more tense. It's the story of a twisted, distorted friendship. It's a compelling, addictive and wonderfully written tale. Can't recommend it enough.'
Louise Douglas

`A gripping and disturbing psychological thriller: every bit as good as The Accident.'
Clare Mackintosh

`Black Narcissus for the Facebook generation; a clever exploration of how petty jealousies and misunderstandings can unravel even the tightest of friendships. Claustrophobic, tense and thrilling, a thrill-ride of a novel that keeps you guessing.'
Elizabeth Haynes

`My heart was racing after I finished CL Taylor's brilliant new book The Lie. Dark, creepy and full of twists. I loved it.'
Rowan Coleman

`C L Taylor is fast becoming the queen of psychological suspense. Read this: you won't be disappointed.'
Victoria Fox

`A plot both brilliant and chilling; characters both appealing and dark and a terrifying climax to which you will race with your heart hammering in your chest. Masterful storytelling; a brilliant read.'
Lucy Robinson

C L Taylor produces dark and intriguing page-turners, with strong characters and great pace.
Paul Finch

“C L Taylor is an excellent story teller”

C L Taylor really does know how to keep her reader on the edge of their seat. The Lie is a complex and sometimes quite terrifying tale of how friendship can go very very wrong.

Jane Hughes lives a fairly quiet life,... More
