Galway 1993: Young Garda Cormac Reilly is called to a scene he will never forget. Two silent, neglected children - 15-year-old Maude and five-year-old Jack - are waiting for him at a crumbling country house. Upstairs, their mother lies dead. Twenty years later, a body surfaces in the icy black waters of the River Corrib. At first it looks like an open-and-shut case, but then doubt is cast on the investigation's findings - and the integrity of the police. Cormac is thrown back into the cold case that has haunted him his entire career - what links the two deaths, two decades apart?

I read a lot and have for a long time but I could not anticipate where this one was going. However, when the twists came, they made sense and was not at all contrived. Great characters. Well performed with the narration adding to the excellent experience of this book. Highly recommended.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Everything Is Lies by Helen Callaghan. Sophia's parents lead quiet, unremarkable lives. At least that is what she's always believed. Until the day she arrives at her childhood home to find a house ringing with silence. Her mother is hanging from a tree. Her father is lying in a pool of his own blood, near to death. The police are convinced it is an attempted murder-suicide. But Sophia is sure that the woman who brought her up isn't a killer....

What did you like most about Everything Is Lies?

I could not predict where this story was going most of the time so never wanted to switch it off

What about Anna Popplewell and Sian Thomas ’s performance did you like?

Excellent performances. The voices were distinctive and well chosen. This made it very easy to follow and added to my enjoyment of the story.
