Is she the next victim? Or is she the culprit…?
Alex South is a high-functioning alcoholic who is teetering on the brink of oblivion. Her career as a television journalist is hanging by a thread since a drunken on-air rant. When a series of murders occur within a couple of miles of her East London home she is given another chance to prove her skill and report the unfolding events. She thinks she can control the drinking, but soon she finds gaping holes in her memory, and wakes to find she’s done things she can’t recall. As the story she’s covering starts to creep into her own life, is Alex a danger only to herself – or to others?
This gripping psychological thriller is perfect for fans of Fiona Barton, B A Paris and Clare Mackintosh. 
My Thoughts:
I Never Lie is an intelligent and thought provoking thriller that I read in one sitting so engrossed was I in the characters and the premise. 
Alex South is an alcoholic who manages to function just, her life is spiralling out of control. She has black outs and is only just managing to hold her job down as a journalist, relying on alcohol to make it through the day. 
News breaks of a murdering spree. Alex South is on the scene as the lead reporter. Is this the opportunity she needs for her colleagues to restore their faith in her or something much sinister. All of the women murdered have been using the same dating app, one that Alex also uses. 
I Never Lie is full of mystery and intrigue. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader interested. Flawed but dynamic characters give the story depth and left me with so much to think about. I cannot get this book out of my head, it has got under my skin. 
I Never Lie is a story for the social media age, an exploration of using apps to secure dates, it puts under the microscope how safe all of that is and the risks that some people take without a thought for their own personal safety. It is also a well researched spotlight on the destructive nature of alcoholism which made for difficult reading. 
I Never Lie is the sort of book that would appeal to many and it is one that I will be recommending as I can't stop thinking about it.
