I am having a hard time rating this one. I did not see the twists and double twists and triple twists coming. Also, it was a little disturbing - this is why I'm having a hard rating. You have grief, revenge, betrayal, obsession, a little madness, criminality, etc. I may rate it 4 stars later.
This does start pretty slow, but it's not a long book, and once the story gets rolling it's batshit crazy in a way that kept my attention.
Susan and Paul have recently moved from Dublin to the country. They're the kind of obnoxious parents who snipe at each other about their parenting: You're smothering her! You're not paying enough attention! Susan seems to notice these qualities in other people, but not herself. Susan and Paul aren't particularly likable, and bo ...more
This book starts glacially slow from the POV of a self-centered woman living in an expensively renovated and beautifully furnished house with her husband and toddler daughter. The storyline is well-conceived and very carefully plotted, and there are multiple twists which are set up to develop organically. Surprisingly but happily, the characters change in many ways, but no one is truly who he/she appears to ...more
I initially was concerned because here is another First Reads book where I absolutely loath the people in it. With the exception of some back drop characters, there isn't anyone in this story that I could even remotely say I kinda sorta liked. Luckily you don't have to. Engrossing and well written, this story sucks you in and keeps you reading even with such unsavory people. It twists and turns and you find yourself pretty ...more

Well climb aboard and experience the twists and turns of what is a real page turner which shocks and makes you question the rights and wrongs,whose camp are you in and ultimately who deserves the treatment they receive. ...more
On their 21at birthday Susan's twin brother Adam is killed by a car.
Now Susan is married to Paul and they have a daughter Amelia who is nearly three. The family have not long moved to Ballyown near Cork, when every parents nightmare happens. Amelia goes !missing.
This is the first book by Janelle Harris that I have read, and I don't think it will be the lady.
Under Lying kept me gripped from beginning to end. It is a cracking read with twist and turns galore.
I got this free with Kindle First Reads. It's not bad, in fact the first 50% is great. The second 50% however descends deeper and deeper into the most ludicrous, convoluted twist-a-thon that by the end I would not have been surprised if aliens did it, or even the ghost of Elvis.
Beautifully written. Provided a compassionate perspective of psychological personality disorders while maintaining the edge of the seat suspense of a thriller as the true nature of the characters emerged one layer at a time. The detail that other reviewers complained of enabled me to immerse myself in the setting and in the protagonist’s point of view.
This book is a psychological thriller. About half way through it really threw me for a loop. I was genuinely surprised! Not many books do this. I couldn't put it down for long. I would recommend it to all but the youngest.
I really don't know what to say. This book was really, really good. I definitely did not expect things to go the way they did, and I loved it. I would for sure recommend this book for anyone who enjoys thrillers with a twist. This one really did my head in.
That is the only word I could think of to describe it.
The main character is grieving for her twin brother, but what happens after is as bad as it can be.
Sue is not really likable, but wow!
The twist in the end only makes more twisted.
