Death Of A Lie is a thriller set mainly in Romania.

This is a wonderful piece of writing that I thoroughly enjoyed. I was already a fan of Peter Harper after reading ‘Cascade’, which is a great story and well worth a read. I like that this story was unpredictable, and certainly entertaining. Shani and Nicolas were my favourite characters, however there are plenty of other great characters in the book.

We start in 1944 with a plane crash in Rumania and a discovery of a file by Andrei and Rodica, two children planning on camping. They decided to hide this in a barn. In later years Lucien, Andrei's adopted son discovers the file and tries to find the answers to the secrets it

My thanks to the Author publishers and BookSirens for providing me with a Kindle version of this book to read and honestly review.
This is an absorbing entertaining well written story, unique from my point of view, in over 45 years of reading books I cannot recall one mainly set in Roumania, and no less enjoyable for that. Quality characterization throughout in particular our spunky heroine, secretive descriptive with a real feel of tension at times.
Recommended.
