A celebrity rape case

She said they did. They said it was consensual. How was one to know. The lawyers on both sides presented their case. 12 jurors were to decide. And the book started.

My first book by David B. Lyons, and I was hooked. The premise and the story gripped me by my throat and kept me stuck to my kindle wanting to know the truth. She said, three said. But what was the truth?

The author's style of writing made me feel as if I were the camera which was getting live feeds about the

Hands up who likes to watch a court room drama. I do. I love being able to follow a case and try and piece together the evidence to find out whether the accused is guilty or not guilty.

This book is perfect for fans of court room dramas. We get to sit in on the deliberations and discussions that the jury on this case are having. It's great to get an in depth look at how each member of the jury feel toward the case. How their backgrounds, their upbringing and their lives can have an effect on

The story really begins after all the evidence has been heard and the jury has retired to discuss their verdict. Most of the jurors have elected to be known by numbers with the odd one using their name. Through the book, you get to know who they are and a little about their lives. The evidence is retold through the court transcripts that the jurors go through from the first meeting of Sabrina, and the three men Jason, who is a famous footballer and his old school buddies Zach and Li to the end ...more

Why, yes, I have always wondered what it would be like to be on the jury at a trial but I have to tell you, after reading this book, I can safely say it’s an experience I’m happy to do without.

After five weeks of listening to evidence in a rape trial, jury members start their deliberations but they have no idea who to believe. There is little or no evidence to go on and it’s very much a case of she said, three said. She said three men got her drunk and took her to a hotel room to take advantage

I love the way this book included both the past story of the court case involved, the setting for the jurors and the discussions they had. However, one of the jurors was described as having a lisp - this lisp was then inconsistently actually written out which I found quite hard to follow, it ruined my flow when I came across a word that was spelt wrong (for the purpose of the lisp!

As soon as I started reading this I was straight away picking up incriminating bits for each character and was

Some books get under your skin and stay with you long after you have read the final page. She Said Three Said, is definitely one of those books for me! The last two paragraphs to the ending of the story, are up there as the most chilling I have read and they have constantly been running through my mind in the weeks since I have finished the book! It is a first-class read that is raw, real, harrowing and thought-provoking. This one, like me, I’m sure will have you reading this in one sitting, ...more

Set in Dublin, She Said, Three Said tells the story of three men, one of whom is a famous footballer, who are accused of raping a woman they meet on a night out, and the jury, who are tasked with deciding whether they are guilty or not.

The three men are childhood friends, red-haired footballer Jason Kenny (who has played for Everton and Sunderland and internationally for Ireland), Zach Brophy and Li Xiang, all aged 35, and the woman, a former model, is called Sabrina Doyle, aged 25. While on a

Well what a book!! This is the kind of book that you can quite easily lose yourself in as the desperation to discover what really happened on the night that this story revolves around kicks in.

She Said, Three Said is split into two narratives, the jurors deliberating on the trial and this alternates to the four main characters version of events that night. I really liked that we were following along at the same rate as the jurors but that we were discovering what actually happened rather than

"She Said, Three Said .....Who will you believe?"
Jason and his two friends are on a rare night out. Jason is a celebrity having been a professional footballer for a major club. They share a secret from over twenty years ago. Sabrina is technically working. She is waiting for a text before meeting her mark for the night. Alternate chapters take us to the start of the discussion of the twelve jury members, the trial having already lasted five weeks. Other chapters are from the perspective of the

Wow! This books just grabs you the minute you open it and takes on a journey full of self-reflection and mind-boggling turmoil.

A very current and relevant plot, really pushing the boundaries with the questions it throws up. Told from the perspective of the alleged victim, the accused and the jury, none of the perspectives are reliable. The accused and the victim tell their story in different ways. Sometimes the differences are subtle but those differences have a huge impact on how the story can

This book had me gripped. There’s so much to consider and analysing the behaviour of each character kept me thinking all day long. This is my favourite book so far from this author and I eagerly await the next.

An compelling read. A rape accusation,denials by the three accused and a jury that has to decide.
This book was hard to put down. The story of the night in question is told from each characters point of view. As for the jury, it was an interesting aspect of the story.
