When you can't remember your crime...
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE GUILTY?
Charlotte wants a fresh start. She wants to forget her past, forget her childhood crime – and, most of all, forget that one terrible moment.
It’s the reason she’s been given a new name, a new life. The reason she spent years in prison.
But even on the outside, with an ankle monitor and court-mandated therapy, she can’t escape the devastating memory of the night that turned her and her only friend into national hate figures.
But now her friend has found her.
And despite the lies she tells to survive, she soon finds herself being dragged deeper and deeper into a past she cannot confront.
Even if it’s going to cost Charlotte her life...
Right from its gripping first page, ONE MORE LIE will seize you by the throat until you’ve read its chilling final line…
‘Written with experience and style… a thriller, a chilling one an' all’
ANNIE CLARKE, FROST MAGAZINE
'Wow! What a compulsive, chilling novel. Both Charlotte and Sean are so thoughtfully and believably drawn, I felt almost as if I was intruding on their most private of thoughts – it makes it a really sinister and yet ultimately tragic story. I will definitely be recommending it.'
PHOEBE LOCKE, author of THE TALL MAN
'Dark, chilling and totally gripping... What I loved about this one is how skilfully Lloyd builds up an almost unbearable dread'
CATHERINE RYAN HOWARD, author of DISTRESS SIGNALS and THE LIAR'S GIRL
'I'm a huge fan of Amy's writing and I read One More Lie pretty much overnight. This is another incredible book from Amy, which I know will do really well. I found it gripping, intriguing, sinister and it really had me hooked from the first page! I will definitely be recommending it to everyone!'
KAREN HAMILTON, author of THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND

JO SPAIN, author of THE CONFESSION
‘A chilling, tragic story that feels like you’re reading behind the scenes in a real criminal case.’
ARAMINTA HALL, author of OUR KIND OF CRUELTY
‘A remarkable book. With complex characters, a pacy plot and a real sense of menace that gradually builds up throughout the novel, this is one hell of a read. 5 stars.’
‘A thought-provoking, heart-breaking tale. I couldn’t have loved it more.’
