Product description


With The Lies You Told, Harriet Tyce proves the success of Blood Orange was no one-off. An extremely well-written and unsettling novel, it tells the story of Sadie and her daughter Robin, and their struggles to establish themselves in the law courts and schoolyard respectively. A slow-burning mystery, full of intrigue and menace, it creeps up on you until that final explosive twist. A great read. ― Alex Michaelides

A breathless read - with a shocker of an ending! ― Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

I read The Lies You Told in two days, barely able to turn the pages fast enough. It's spare and taut, the sense of wrongness building in chilling, skilfully written layers, with a jaw dropping last line twist. ― Lisa Jewell, author of The Family Upstairs

Every bit as intriguing, well-written and addictive as its predecessor ― Sara Collins, award-winning author of The Confessions of Frannie Langton

An absolute page turner with a twist you'll read twice because you can't believe you missed it ― John Marrs, author of What Lies Between Us

A clever, immersive read. Harriet's writing is beautifully lucid and I found the story really compelling, giving access to the complexities of motherhood as well as the dangers Sadie faces ― Kate Rhodes, author of Burnt Island

Totally addictive - I was gripped ― Sophie Hannah, author of Haven’t They Grown

A twisty page-turner from the author of Blood OrangeSarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes

A gripping and intelligent thriller ― Stylist

With lots of twists and turns, this thriller is impossible to put down ― Independent


Fans of Apple Tree Yard and The Girl on the Train will love the atmosphere of clenched ambiguity Tyce sustains so well. - Guardian

Harriet Tyce brings a new layer of visceral, addictive dark to domestic noir . . . At once shocking and riveting, I simply couldn't stop reading. Bravo - Behind Her Eyes

A classy thriller with complex and compelling characters - I See You

Combines sharp spare prose with a gloriously twisted plot - I read this in one heart-pounding, furiously angry sitting - Little Deaths

Blood Orange is destined to be the debut that everyone is talking about in 2019. Dark, original and utterly compelling, I could not put it down. And what a twist at the end! - Then She Was Gone

This thriller breathes new life into the domestic noir genre and grips until the final page - Daily Express

Blood Orange is glittering and fierce and resolutely unsentimental, a glorious bonfire of a marriage thriller - Irish Times

Complex and menacing, this is a very impressive debut - Observer
