She Who Lies: A dark, gripping psychological thriller that will keep you hooked by [Kane, Alex]


Blood is thicker than water, the family bond stronger than any other.

They think it’s all forgotten.

But I don’t forget.

The Laird-Shaw family live a life most only dream about. Self-made millionaires Gavin Shaw and Stevie Laird built their business from humble roots to global turnover, Stevie’s wife – and Gavin’s sister – Eva is never out of the style pages, while daughter Carla has used her huge following as an Instagram influencer to shine a spotlight on mental health issues.

But behind the glamour lies a web of lies; hidden secrets so explosive that they would bring this family dynasty crashing down. But someone out there knows the truth…and now they’re stepping out of the shadows to reveal the dark heart of the Laird-Shaw family. Because when the truth comes to light, there’s nowhere to hide…and all the money in the world can’t save this family from themselves.

A gripping psychological thriller that will hook you from page one – the perfect read for fans of C.L. Taylor, T.M. Logan and Adele Parks.


She Who Lies: A dark, gripping psychological thriller that will keep you hooked


The Laird/Shaw family were the fairy tale story of how to be an extremely successful business. Gavin Shaw had left school as a failure to the system but the determination and hard work he had put into his odd job business at 16 had grown and so he shared his success with his best buddy Stevie Laird.

Now many years later they were like the perfect family with Stevie marrying Gavin’s sister Eva when they were younger and their daughter coming into her own fame from the charity work that she supported. Until Eva received a message from a woman saying she knew what she had done.

The story falls back into the past with chapters that were like opening a Russian doll, each one revealing a side of the family that I didn’t know was there until it was revealed. The chapters jump between the past and present as the protective shell around the family becomes more brittle with every page turn. The insecurities, the betrayals and coverups.

This is a twisty, turny, twist again story that totally rocks. I had got this, I thought, then, Bam, oh boy, no way, this is big then Pow, it goes again! What a last quarter of the book this is. A superb story, a brilliant ending!!

I wish to thank the Publisher and Sarah Hardy of Botbspublicity for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly
