Talk about a twist! I was totally shocked and blown away by what happened, and it really was the person I least expected who is found to be stalking Jane in the present day. Both the past and present narratives join in the final few chapters and reach an almighty crescendo, and I truly was surprised by the turn of events.
The entire story reaches a troubling closure and the pieces of the puzzle finally come together. The story was extremely well written and kept me hooked until the very end, and the twist at the end was just unbelievable.

Now, with The Lie, Kultgen returns with an even more salacious -- yet also more searching -- novel that reaches deeper into the craven inner workings of some of most depraved minds in America: His subjects are Brett, the rich hedonist whose appetite for sex is matched only by his contempt for women; his best friend, Kyle, the brooding science geek whose good intentions lead him to one disastrous decision; and Heather, the social-climbing sorority girl who has the power to destroy them both.

Since getting back from Nepal Emma has tried to move on from what happened and that her two friends died there. She is in a new relationship and maybe something is going well for her for a change. Emma receives a letter and a couple of emails that shakes her to the core telling her that Daisy is alive and it is her that should be dead.
Facebook messages and text messages also start arriving that shakes her up, along with a new volunteer at Green Fields who seems far too interested in her. It is when she is a victim of a hit and run accident that things start to turn serious and she is advised that she could be in danger as the police investigate.
It is when Green Fields is set alight that she finally has to face the demons of her past and can she save the innocent victims the animals while protecting her own life?
The Lie is a downright dark and very twisted psychological thriller that is a compelling rollercoaster of a read especially as the tension builds to a crescendo finale when we finally receive the answers to the questions posed throughout the book.
With the multiple twists in the examination of friendships and cults you really do enter a dark and very creepy world. The characters are well developed well written and the story really does grip you by the throat and not let you go until the end. I certainly would not want to get on the wrong side of Cally Taylor because The Lie is an example of her thinking she has a seriously twisted mind that would make her revenge a very painful cold dish being served.
The Lie is a dark twisted totally creepy psychological thriller that will have you gripped from the beginning to the end. Who knew friendships could be as dangerous as those in The Lie after reading this I shall be reassessing my friendships for sure. Mar 03, Jules rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Lie was a thrilling read that was very hard to put down. The main focus of this story is about female friendships, and what can happen if those friendships become strained and taken over by competitiveness, jealousy and lack of trust.
Jane previously named Emma tries to reinvent her life after the traumatic holiday in Nepal, which she went on with her three friends five years earlier. Unfortunately that is not meant to The Lie was a thrilling read that was very hard to put down. Unfortunately that is not meant to be, and her past comes back to haunt her in more ways than one.
Someone knows about her past and is taunting her in the present. Who is it and what will be the outcome? As the story progresses, we learn what actually happened in Nepal. There is a very interesting mix of characters, some more likeable than others. I softened to Jane immediately, as I loved her compassion for animals. The depth of secrets and lies amongst the four friends is rather impressive, and makes it very hard to work out who is good or bad, and who is safe to trust. Every time the book took me back to Nepal, I just wanted to get out of there.
I could feel my anxiety increasing every time I was taken back into the past, and would be screaming at some of the characters to get out of there NOW. I would like to thank the publisher, HarperCollins UK, Avon for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

May 19, Gary rated it really liked it. I would like to thank both Net Galley and my Goodread friend Jules for recommending this book to me.
A psychological thriller based on the friendship of four girls who encounter jealousy and misunderstandings that put their relationships to the test.
The story alternates between present day and the nightmare that occurred 5 years ago. A fast paced thriller that is both an excellent page turner and a very good novel that is full of very strong characters. I enjoyed the book so much that I plan to I would like to thank both Net Galley and my Goodread friend Jules for recommending this book to me. I enjoyed the book so much that I plan to read another of the authors books "The Accident" very soon.
Nov 21, Karen rated it really liked it. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the publisher which has been glaring at me from the bookshelf, until I couldn't wait any longer and bumped it up to the top of the TBR. Five years ago, Jane Hughes was called Emma Woolfe and she and three friends set out for the holiday of a lifetime to Nepal. The fun that they were expecting however soon turned into a ni Having read C L Taylor's debut thriller last year, The Accident, which I loved, The Lie was on my wishlist as soon as it was announced.
The fun that they were expecting however soon turned into a nightmare. The suspense starts at the very beginning when Jane receives a letter at the animal sanctuary where she now works, indicating that someone knows her secret.
I was hooked already and intrigued to find out why Jane changed her name and what did she have to hide? The story then flips between the present and the past.
We also see the cracks that gradually appear in the friendship and watch it becoming something nasty and frightening. The characterization is so good - people who you thought were trustworthy turn out to be anything but and the sinister undertones increase as gradually the story unfolds.
All four friends had flawed but interesting characters. They may not have been very likeable but each had their own issues which all played a part in the trauma that was to follow. The Ektanta yatra retreat, where they were staying, was anything but a haven of peace and tranquility, some of the people there may have seemed charming and welcoming but a few had an agenda of their own. Most of the time my sympathy was with Emma — there were times when I thought she was a bit naive but I could identify with her character and I felt for her at the way she was treated.
This excellent story has so much going for it — there is a wonderful sense of place, particularly the setting in Nepal and there is darkness to the plot which made me worry for the four friends and added to the sense of fear as I turned the page. May 21, Petra rated it really liked it Shelves: She embarked on the trip of a lifetime with three female friends visiting a "retreat" in Nepal.
What happened during their time ab "Your past doesn't have to define your future, not if you won't let it" is one of the messages in The Lie.
This was my first time reading a book by British author C. Taylor, and I really enjoyed it. The Lie was a very sinister and atmospheric tale of psychological suspense. At one stage, I was doubting everybody who was around Jane, completely unsure whom to trust. Jane was a very likable character, but there weren't many of those.
I thought the book was extremely good at depicting the dynamics of groups. Firstly, the female toxic friendships that were shaped by competitiveness, envy and bitterness and secondly, the group dynamics at the "retreat" in Nepal, which showed how easily people can be manipulated and how dangerous a situation can turn once a follow-the-leader environment has been established.
However, there were some situations in Nepal as well as in Wales where I felt the plot was losing some credibility. Nevertheless, it was such a tense, fast-paced and provocative story, which was refreshingly different, I really liked it and will seek out more by this author.
Many thanks to Sourcebooks Landmark for my copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Mar 02, Margaret Madden rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jane has a nice settled life. Living and working in the Welsh countryside has its benefits. A job in the local animal sanctuary, a new boyfriend with great potential as a keeper and a peaceful existence overall. However, she has been hiding the truth from everyone and an anonymous note may be the beginning of the end of her quiet days, as her secret comes back to haunt her.

Past the poster, through the window, I see something and almost shit my pants. Alyna the plane girl is working behind one of the registers. I decide to download a fucking Tori Amos album. What should I do if she remembers me? I browse the DVD section. Fuck it, I walk up to the counter, straight to her.
I take one, pretend to look around at some other shit and see if I can catch her checking me out.
I go back up to the register and toss the disc on the counter. She picks it up and looks at it, then looks at me. That night Casey comes over and sees the unopened CD lying on my couch. I wonder if she ever fucked a guy based on his musical preference. To be fair, the rolls are fucking amazing, and we did see Lara Flynn Boyle there once. The same joke was sent to me by Casey herself a few days ago in an e-mail that explained she had come up with the joke herself, which I knew to be untrue even then because it had already been forwarded to me by my mom.
Just as she leaves, the waiter puts our plates down, giving me the perfect opportunity to make my move. Flipping through the channels, I was blessed with an infomercial for a product called Bloussant.
Bloussant is a pill taken daily that is guaranteed to enlarge tits by at least one cup size. Seventy-four dollars and fourteen business days later my own two-month supply of Bloussant arrived in the mail.
I decide to increase her dosage and spoon out two heaping mounds of the stuff from the Ziploc Baggie I have in my right back pocket. I mix it in the best I can and decide it would be a good move to put a third spoonful in her Diet Coke. I just thought there was. It must have been the ice.
But her look fades as she sits down, spreads her napkin across her lap, and takes a huge bite of 34 chad kultgen fettuccine Alfredo—Bloussant. Her reaction to a strange taste is nonexistent. I grab her tits much more than I normally would that night as we fuck in an attempt to feel any kind of progress at all. So I e-mail him back that I was. Then he e-mails me back and asks if I can forward him the invitation just so he can see who was invited.
I mean, what is he thinking? Who does that? Who comes to a party without an invitation? I mean, can you believe that? Can you believe that? Hello, Shawna moved to New York like four months ago. I mean, seriously, learn to take a hint.
And he sends me this thing that he sent to like thirty other people about his stupid jazz trio playing somewhere in North Hollywood. North Hollywood, can you believe that? Nobody good. I kind of feel sorry for him. So then I send Eliza an e-mail saying basically watch out for an e-mail from Lem inviting himself to her party.
Then she e-mails me back saying that Lem already called her at work and wanted to know what the deal was—if Eliza had lost his e-mail address or something. She told him that she was sorry and she must have lost his e-mail otherwise he would have been invited, but the party was only open to the first fifty people who RSVPed because her place is kind of small.
I just—I mean, can you imagine being like that?
Falsches Spiel: Roman (German Edition)
We sit down, order the first of our two-drink minimum and look to stage one, where a moderately attractive girl with no ass grinds her crotch in the air to the beat of a far-past-its-prime Limp Bizkit song. Fuck it. The waitress leaves and the bitches get back to work. Some Tool song and a Linkin Park song finish out my three-forthe-price-of-one session.
Should I get one? Should I? I need to look around some more. If I find something that I like, I might get the card, too. His name tag reads Stevie—Manager. So when is she supposed to work next? I write down something short, and put my phone number next to it. He unfolds it and starts reading it out loud. We kind of had a conversation about it. I was wondering if you might want to get dinner sometime. Call me. I try to create a safe and comfortable work environment here and I will not have my employees harassed during the course of their workday.
I slip back into the Gap just in time to wait for another thirty minutes before Casey comes out of the dressing room and downloads a sweater with her new Gap card.
I need a new one. I wonder if my ripped-up note will still be in the trash can by the front desk. I wonder if she might see her name on it and pull it out. I get up to go get another drink, and when I come back Todd has somehow managed to fill our booth with not the promised three hot bitches, but four average-looking bitches.
The third brunette is Asian and semi-hot from what I can see, until the candle flicker at our table bounces off a nasty fucking hairlip. I the average american male 45 think she gives her name as Amy, but I immediately give her the name Scarface in my head. I wonder if she can even suck cock at all. I saw the last UFC though. I decide to wait it out, let her talk, let her get comfortable with me, and see where it goes.
They shut down the bar and our whole group goes outside. I give her my real one, not remembering even as I say it to find the strength to change a single digit. Scarface gives me a hug and for the first time all night I notice her body, which is nice. Hard little tits and a flat stomach. I wonder if she works out at home or if she braves a public gym with her lip. I wonder if she gets a Jamba Juice after she works out like I do sometimes and I also wonder if she uses a straw or if she even has the ability to use a straw.
She hops in a car driven by one of the two sisters, as does Leslie Leonard, leaving Todd and me standing on the sidewalk. Your real number?
There are two thirty-something flaming fags next to us also thinking about downloading a dog. One of them is holding a baby pug. What would I do? I mean, please, who wants to hear that you can waste thirteen hundred dollars on a fucking dog? And once you get out of college, who still slaps another guy on the ass? I walk to the back of the store and look through their rummage bin, which is usually filled with old Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo games.
In the game you play a god who controls a population of people. The computer plays a rival god controlling its own population.
Each level takes roughly forty-five minutes to an hour to beat. There are levels. After its release in , it was rated the worst game of the year by several gaming magazines.
One even rated it the worst game ever made. As a result, no store carried it for more than a month after it was released. So I had resigned myself to renting it from the only video store in town that carried it in the hopes of one day beating it. Over the course of several rentals, I had progressed to the eightyseventh level. One weekend while trying to rent it again, I was notified that it had not been returned and was thought to be stolen.
A quest that has consumed multiple years of my life has finally and unexpectedly ended. Are you and Casey still together? I saw her on a plane, and then I saw her in a record store. She sold me a CD. I constantly think about her. But you better be fucking careful. Shit like this always blows up in your face. When I get home I jerk off thinking about the possibility of fucking Alyna on our first date. The Covenant Ghosts do too much damage and there are too many of them.
The phone rings. I answer it without stopping my game and hear a vaguely familiar lisp. So what are you up to right now? I love video games. You ever play Tetris?
Before I pull the trigger I pretend Scarface is piloting the Covenant ship. As I blow him out of the air, I see his body falling down to the ground below.
Me too. I listen to pretty much everything. I try to ignore it as I mop up some more Covenant ships. But when you do go on dates, what kind of stuff do you like to do? Where do you like to eat? Do you ever get in the mood for Italian food? I think for a few seconds about Scarface and how she must have similar conversations with guys all the time.
I think about star-sixty-nining her and taking her up on the offer. I jerk off as I imagine her sucking my cock and I cum as I imagine blowing my load all over her deformed lip. I use a paper towel from the kitchen to clean myself off and then unpause my game. I immediately wonder why she gave me her work number instead of her home number. When she gets on the phone I want to ask her why she gave me her work number, but I decide not to push the issue. So I do. So what kind of food do you like?
See you then. How am I supposed to know? I guess. I never thought about it like that. I will. I find nothing to eat in her refrigerator, then go to the bathroom to piss. Fox takes amphetamines so he can study for a test without knowing the serious harm he could be doing to himself. Fox slides across the floor in a rolling chair, when Casey steps right in front of the TV. I try to look around her, but Michael J.

Fox has already rolled across the floor. I missed it. She called right after I called you. I wish a pot of scalding water was on the stove so I could dunk my head in it.
I just stand there. I just open my mouth. She actually probably would look good from the front.
Have you? I love you. What did your mom say to you? I wish they were watching us fuck. I have to get out of this. Do you want to go get a sandwich?
She stomps off into her bedroom and slams the door shut. Her cats are still sitting on the coffee table just staring at me. So I sit back down on the couch and finish watching Family Ties.
I wonder how many eighteen-year-old hardbodies Michael J. I watch TV for the next few minutes, during which I formulate my apology and the quickest route of conversation that will lead me to fucking. It turns out to be a good decision, as Casey comes out of her room ready to start up the conversation again.

A fast paced thriller that is both an excellent page turner and a very good novel that is full of very strong characters.

The suspense starts at the very beginning when Jane receives a letter at the animal sanctuary where she now works, indicating that someone knows her secret.
The fragility of the close friendships are illustrated, leaving me wondering whether some of my personal friendships would survive such atrocities.
I mix it in the best I can and decide it would be a good move to put a third spoonful in her Diet Coke.
