A Time To Lie by Simon Berthon is a gripping contemporary political thriller that had me intrigued from the start.
The reader enters the echelons of power as we follow the characters through Downing Street. Secrets from the past threaten to topple those in power. The plotline is well thought out, complex and engrossing.
We travel from London to Cornwall and overseas as the action from thirty years ago intrudes on present day.
There are espionage, the iron curtain, court cases and double dealings. As the action twists this way and that we wonder just who is telling the truth. Whom can we trust?
Simon Berthon is a new author to me, writing in a genre that I am unfamiliar with but what a thrilling, gripping read A Time To Lie was. I cannot wait for more from Simon Berthon.
