“Boldly plotted, tightly knotted—a provocative true-or-false thriller that deepens and darkens to its ink-black finale. Marvelous.”—AJ Finn, author ofThe Woman in the Window

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?

Alice Feeney is a writer and journalist. She spent fifteen years with BBC News where she worked as a reporter, news editor, arts and entertainment producer, and One O'Clock news producer. Alice has lived in London and Sydney and has now settled in the Surrey countryside, where she lives with her husband and dog.Sometimes I Lieis her debut.

“If you’re looking for aGone Girl–esque fix, then this is the book for you.” —Cosmopolitan

“A spine-tingling psychological thriller…the joy (and the stress) of this thriller is separating fact from fiction. The creepy feeling at the back of your neck is 100 percent real.”People

“[An] insanely twisty thriller.”Entertainment Weekly

“The twists pile up…visceral and haunting.” —

“Alice Feeney’s twisty psychological thriller,Sometimes I Lie, her debut novel, slides neatly into the company of Gillian Flynn’sGone Girl and Paula Hawkins’sThe Girl on the Train. With its various plot twists, it’s a dizzying, disturbing read that becomes hard to put down once Amber tells us, ‘I’m back now and I remember everything.’” —The Minneapolis Star Tribune

“This brilliant psychological thriller kept me guessing until the very last page.” —Jessica Knoll,New York Timesbestselling author ofLuckiest Girl Alive andThe Favorite Sister

“A gripping debut with a brilliant twist, I LOVED it!”—BA Paris,New York Timesbestselling author ofBehind Closed Doors

“Faster and more twisted than a roller coaster with an ending that’ll make your stomach drop, Alice Feeney’sSometimes I Lie is not to be missed. I loved it!” —Mary Kubica,New York Timesbestselling author ofThe Good Girland Every Last Lie

“Propulsive and absorbing. Such a compelling, provocative narrator!” —Flynn Berry, author ofUnder the Harrow

"Fans of the psychological thriller will enjoy this ambitious debut."Kirkus Reviews

“The ending is jaw-dropping.” —AARP’s The Girlfriend

“A serpentine tale of betrayal, madness, and murder.... Feeney is definitely a writer to watch.”Publishers Weekly

“I read this in one compulsive gulp in one day. It’s SO fiendishly clever—an absolute masterclass in plotting and narrative design.”—Richard Skinner, author ofThe Mirror

“A bold and original voice—I loved this book.”—Clare Mackintosh,New York Times bestselling author ofI Let You Go andI See You

“Tightly plotted, superbly written, this is a thriller that grabs you and holds you in its thrall. This story of a woman in a coma recalling the violence in her life gave me just enough information to remain entirely gripped yet sufficiently little that I didn’t know where I’d find the answers, or even the questions at times. I was led—completely willingly—in various different directions and until the final few pages I was baffled yet engrossed. And then, suddenly, at the very end,everything became clear. A brilliantly assured debut and a real achievement.”—Nicholas Searle, author of international bestsellerThe Good Liar

“Exceptional in plotting…Expect perfectly embedded twists and sharply drawn characters. A brilliant thriller.”—Ali Land, author ofGood Me Bad Me
