To Tell You the Truth by Gilly Macmillan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A dazzling thriller with a compelling and unreliable narrator, To Tell You The Truth is fresh, bold and ferociously smart.
The story begins with our protagonist, Lucy, a successful thriller author with a dark past – her little brother Teddy went missing after she took him out in the woods for a Solstice festival when she was nine. When her husband, Dan, unexpectedly buys a house in her old neighborhood, old memories are drudged up. But Lucy doesn’t know if she can trust her memories at all. She’s so used to making up stories, she barely knows what was real then and what wasn’t. So of course, when Dan goes missing, Lucy is the first that the police suspect. But is she telling the truth? Or is everything she says just make believe?
Throughout the story we also get to meet Lucy’s best and only friend, an imaginary girl called Eliza. But is Eliza Lucy’s better half? Or her worse half?
Compelling and clever, To Tell You The Truth had me gripped to the end. Every twist felt fresh and unpredictable, every scene atmospheric and moody. I highly recommend this pacey and intriguing thriller.
