Those Who Lie by Diane Jeffrey Review


Emily Klein doesn’t know she has killed her husband until the day of his funeral.

At first, signs point to a tragic accident. Yet, as Emily pieces together the events before his death – events which led to her own memory loss – she begins to suspect that her husband’s death may have been the result of more than a terrible twist of fate…

But the accident is only the beginning. Because while Emily’s physical scars will heal, the trauma of the accident has awakened old ghosts. She hears strange sounds, catches things that can’t possibly be there in the corner of her eye. Before long, everywhere she looks, she seems to see her husband.

And suddenly, Emily finds herself asking the most dangerous question of all.

Can she really trust herself?

This book was a dark, dangerous thriller that kept me guessing right until the very end. Diane Jeffrey did a great job of keeping the reader off-balance, so that you’re never quite sure what’s going on. I devoured the book in two sittings and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It was anything but predictable with plenty of twists and turns to make you yell ‘OH MY GOD!’

Emily was a great unreliable narrator. Suffering from memory loss means the circumstances surrounding her husband’s death are distorted in her mind and her version of events can’t be relied upon. Piece by piece, what truly happened to her husband is finally revealed, culminating in a really surprising ending. Diane Jeffrey’s characterisation was excellent throughout, and I felt myself sympathising with Emily as she searched for answers about what really happened to her husband.

If you’re looking for a dark, twisty thriller you’ll love Those Who Lie!
