Delighted to be kicking off AB Morgan’s blog blitz today for her chilling new novel, The Camera Lies. Huge thanks to Sarah Hardy for the blitz invite and the ARC of the book. Here is my review:

The-Camera-Lies_preview_10

Konrad Neale is a television presenter. His waning career has been given a new lease of life since he took on a series of hard-hitting documentaries that investigate miscarriages of justice.
Matthew Hawley has been convicted of the brutal murder of his wealthy attractive wife Helena. However, he has no memory of the events and insists he is not responsible for willingly killing her. 
When Konrad interviews Matthew in prison, he explores the details of the murder and the possible motives behind it. But all is not as it seems.
Did Matthew murder his wife? 
Soon the search is on to identify who else might be involved in the murder of Helena and Konrad is about to learn that sometimes the camera lies.

What does TWG think?

If you think you know what’s going to happen in this book – think again!!

Yes, the start of this book is a little bit slow and took a while to get into, BUT those few chapters were vital in setting the scene for each individual character. It didn’t take long for the storyline to cement the fact that something had gone incredibly wrong. What that was, however, remained under lock and key for multiple chapters. Fingers were pointing  at certain characters from all different directions, yet there was still a massive question mark looming over the certainty of their actions. Why did he commit a murder? Why doesn’t he remember it, surely someone would remember actively murdering another human being…right?

Once the pace of the storyline picked up a little bit, I was absolutely hooked by the gripping events which occurred rather frequently. I couldn’t get my head round why Matthew didn’t remember murdering his wife! There must be a logical reason but, seeing as I am not educated in that way, I had absolutely no idea which made this storyline even more chilling.

I love AB Morgan’s writing as she tells the story for what it is, rather than making it socially acceptable and keeping things covered. When events happened, AB Morgan made them very clear, leaving room for the reader to interpret the order of events in their own mind, before revealing the truth later on in the book. Despite being gruesome, I appreciated the black and white attention to detail, as it made the plot all the more realistic.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading such a chilling, addictive, and highly jaw dropping novel. What a book! Highly recommended.
