Review ~ Tell No Lies by Greg Hurwitz

Tell No Lies by Gregg Hurwitz
Penguin Books UK
1 August 2013

A Counsellor for criminals finds himself entangled in a serial killer’s trail of death when he finds letters foretelling the next victims. In an increasingly tense story, he works alongside the Police to catch the killer, whilst juggling his own complicated life around work, his sick wife and his rich socialite mother’s controlling grip. As he gets drawn deeper into the violence, it emerges that he too is a target of the killer’s unknown quest for vengeance, but slowly and surely he uncovers the truth, leading him to question the motives of those closest to him.

This was a well-written, pacy novel that slowly and surely built the tension as well as the characters involved. The twists and turn were plausible and well thought out, and the main character was believably normal and reacted as such to events around him. He didn’t turn into a superhero, but overcame problems and difficulties with dogged determination. All the other characters were strong and fitted well into the evolving events.

A good read right to the end.

Thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Books UK for my review copy and to JDB for this guest review.
