The First Lie

We’ve all had sleepless nights thinking about it.
You’re home alone. Someone breaks in.

Reviews

This is a real page turner. I finished it in one go!
Martina Cole
A great thriller that will keep you turning the pages late into the night. A story that will continuously make you question what you would do in the same position. Great read!
Luca Veste
What a fantastic read it was! It's a superbly gripping and brilliantly twisty tale
Simon Lelic
Where nothing is as it seems, The First Lie is twisty, layered and compelling. A genuine page-turner, A.J. Park has a big future in British crime fiction
M.W. Craven
The First Lie has everything I want in a thriller. Riveting, fast-paced, and full of twists and unforgettable characters, and that one rare quality: I absolutely could not put it down.
