Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Everything Is Lies by Helen Callaghan.

No-one is who you think they are.

Sophia's parents lead quiet, unremarkable lives. At least that is what she's always believed.

Everyone has secrets.

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.

Especially those closest to you.

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. As her father is too ill to talk, it is up to Sophia to clear her mother's name. And to do this she needs to delve deep into her family's past - a past full of dark secrets she never suspected were there....

What if your parents had been lying to you since the day you were born?

Genuinely Thrilling

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.

Unbelievable characters and plot!

Looks like I'm the only person here who didn't enjoy this book at all! It started off Ok but then when the mother started telling her story it just unravelled into unbelievable drivel!! And when the Dad's story kicked in....well I gave up. I'm not even sure why this rates as psychological thriller. As you can tell I'm left underwhelmed.

Great story

I really enjoyed the twists and turns in this book. I did guess the big reveals although this didn’t affect my enjoyment of the book. I was pleasantly surprised.

She’s a good one.

I really enjoyed this! Loved the two separate narratives and burned through it in record time just so I could find out all of the answers! Thoroughly recommend.

Crime by numbers

Meh. So very predictable. From the reviews I thought it would be something I'd enjoy. Felt like a waste of time.

wow wow wow

This book had me hooked right from the beginning, I did work out the twists quite early on but that doesn't change the fact that this is one of the most amazing books I have ever read. The bad part is, now I have to try to find a book that can come close to this amazing read. That is going to be tricky!

Excellent performance

I have been listening to a lot of true crime podcasts lately, so it was nice to have a change with some fictional crime. I truly loved this audiobook, I kept wanting to listen to the next episode!

Riveting thriller

Loved this book. It was a fun read, a riveting thriller, beautifully told and filled with more that a few twists and turns!
