Publisher's Summary

Psychologist Margot Scott has a picture-perfect life: a nice house in the suburbs, a husband, two children and a successful career.  

On a warm spring morning Margot approaches one of her clients on a busy train platform. He is looking down at his phone, with his duffel bag in hand as the train approaches. That’s when she slams into his back and he falls in front of the train.

Margot’s clients all lie to her, but one lie cost her family and freedom.

A fast-paced psychological thriller for fans of The Silent Patient.

Surprised

When this first started I thought I probably wouldn’t get to the end without swapping it but it did get better. The storyline was good. It has turned me off psychologists though. Margot was so frustrating, and broke every rule of patient/practitioner relationships. Once it got interesting I did enjoy it.

Exciting, suspenseful with all the requirements of a good narrative.

This was one of those stories that I couldn’t put down. The narrator was amazing with her characteristic voices for each and every character.loved the surprise at the end.

Utterly Compulsive! That Ending OMG

This definitely puts the 'psychological' in psychological thriller. Some great twists and a pacy story, I couldn't stop listening.

The strength of the story is it seems so normal, almost predictable but the deeper you get into it the more you realise something is not quite right...

My jaw is still on the floor

The best twists you really don't see coming.

I found this a nice read until half way through, then boom a big twist.

Then I thought "no more twists" then I got another slap in the face. A great listen, but one you must listen to all the way through.

Breathless Psychological Thriller

Starts as a slow burn mystery and grows more intense as the plot moves along to a breakneck crescendo. Also love when the Audible Original offer is a full book.

Predictable

But worth the listen for the last four minutes!

The ending will knock your socks off...it is black hearted and

HOLY COW----AWESOME!!

I half wonder if the author wasn't worried about being predictable so the ending would knock the socks off listeners.

Narration not the best, but not so bad I couldn't power thru.

Enjoy this gem from March Originals 👍

Anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers and excellent, well-paced narration, will be pleased to have selected Tell Me Lies as one of March's Audible Originals.

Sometimes readers can find some real gems offered in the Originals section. This was one of the longer choices at just over six hours so listeners will find they have arrived at the end in no time. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Omg the ending floored me!!!

I'm hard to please but have to say this was gripping right from the start. Yes, there were a few
very minor plot holes, but, it's pretty darned perfect thriller. And ...what a mind bender of a trip!
Wish all the thrillers were this good, this immersive, and shocking! Kudos to the author for completely gobsmacking me.
