Tell Me Lies by J.P. Pomare. (2020).
**4.5 out of 5 stars**
Psychologist Margot has a picture-perfect life: a nice house in the suburbs, a husband, two children and a successful career. One morning Margot approaches one of her clients on a busy train platform. He is looking down at his phone as the train approaches. That’s when she slams into him and he falls in front of the train. Margot’s clients lie to her, but one lie cost her family and her freedom.
I was so looking forward to this one after loving the author’s previous novel (In the Clearing) and seeing quite a lot of positive reviews. It did not disappoint! I read this in one day because it was so well-written, engaging, fast-paced and at only roughly 250 pages it didn’t take long to get through. We know from the beginning that Margot has deliberately pushed one of her clients on front of a train; the questions are which one and why? Full of twists and red herrings, this psychological thriller will keep you guessing until the end. Loved it!
