‘Twisty and exhilarating’ SUNDAY TIMES

Everything she is about to tell them is a lie…

Evie Porter has everything a girl could want: a doting boyfriend and a house with a picket fence. The only catch: Evie Porter doesn’t exist.

First comes the identity. Once given a name and location, she learns everything there is to know about the town and the people in it. Then the mark. Ryan Sumner.

The last piece of the puzzle is the job. But this job feels different. Ryan has gotten under her skin. And when a woman walks into town using the one thing Evie has been desperate to protect – Evie’s real identity – she can’t afford to make a mistake. As Evie’s past begins to catch up with her, can she stay one step ahead to save her future?

What a box of tricks! First Lie Wins flickers past like a shadow-play: just when you think you've worked out what you're seeing, the shapes shift, the scene transforms, and - hold on - maybe you had it wrong a moment ago? Cool and clever and full-on fun, the sort of slippery high-stakes now-you-see-me-now-you-don't thriller that few novelists are bold enough to attempt these days. Pick it up, please. This is a good one
