I Know The Truth by M A Comley is a highly enjoyable and easy to read thriller. Just what I needed at the moment. I flew through it in two days and given my concentration levels at the currently that is a massive compliment to any book.
I loved the way the author built up the tension to a point where you really feared for Lucy’s life and the people she cared about. You could sense the danger and it was built up throughout the novel reaching a crescendo at just the right point. It really felt that Lucy’s hope for a better life, having fled a violent past hung on a knife edge. M A Comely adding in levels of threat from more than one angle to make the net that surrounds Lucy, feels all the more claustrophobic and threatening. It seems to surround her at every point, not just ghosts from the past bringing nightmares into the present, but from Mathew’s overbearing family. It worked because Lucy is a strong enough character, determined to fight for her future, even if that means taking on a mother-in-law who feels no one is good enough for her precious sun and heir. Your never sure if the threat is paranoia gone overboard, or if this new life she has the chance of is really going to be a dream or nightmare.
Characterise it gives us all the classics of a good thriller. A heroine who’s secrets don’t cower her, but which come dangerously close to destroying her life. She has skeletons in her wardrobe that will shock many, while others might feel they understand. She determined and at the same time insecure enough that you can believe in the reasons she hides from her past. Many women run from pasts they would prefer to forget and for there own safety, but is this the reason Lucy lives under a new name or has she darker secrets to hide. In I Know The Truth M A Comely gives us a lead character that will stretch our compassion to bursting point.
If you are looking for a highly enjoyable, fast paced thriller, than I Know The Truth is a good one to choose.
I would like to thank the author and the publisher for the ARC in return for an honest review.
