I Never Lie is a compulsive, easy read that I sped through. It is a book about addiction and its consequences, centering on the protagonist’s alcoholism.
The story follows Alex, a self-destructive reporter who fled to London from Manchester after a traumatic incident the year before. She’s covering the story of a suspected serial killer in London who’s killing women near her home, leaving the reader to wonder: is Alex a danger to herself – or to others?
The story is neatly structured between Alex and diary entries from the past; Alex is well-developed, even if her self-destructive behavior is sometimes frustrating to read; and all of the secondary characters are well-developed and seem like they could be real people. An enjoyable read.
Thank you to Netgalley for letting me read I Never Lie by Jody Sabral in exchange for my honest review.
