The story revolves around Konrad Neale who is a GTV host for a true crime show. You find out that is investigating a peculiar crime involving Matthew, who murdered his wife Helena. After interviewing Matthew and watching it back with his co-worker and friend Annette (one of my favorite characters in the book) he feels like there's something Matthew is trying to tell him;
This is where the wild chase began, so to speak. From this point forward you are flying down the road, whipping it around curves you see coming, and some are going to sneak up on you that you don't expect at all!
His best friend Barney referring to his wife as the Camp Commandment made me giggle throughout. I enjoyed the author's character development. There were a lot of characters involved, but not too many where it starts to get confusing.
The ending of the book was fast-paced but didn't necessarily feel rushed, just a lot of information at once. I was convinced I had figure out the end of the book about 2/3rds of the way through -- only to find out I was wrong. I was impressed. Not too many twists get me with as many thrillers as I have read.
Overall, well done. Would recommend.
An attention grabbing opening chapter as Konrad interviews the murderer who insists he has no memory of the event and would never have done such a thing. However the forensics and film footage of the crime seem to leave no doubt of his guilt. Meanwhile Konrad's marriage is not going so well, and he is tempted to return to the woman he loves but gave up. He then starts receiving chilling messages from a stalker who wants him to give up his investigation into the murder. To what lengths will the stalker go to get their way? Plenty of interesting characters with twists and surprises to keep the reader guessing almost from the start.
There are some sex scenes but they fit in with the context (I'm not a fan of erotica). Just enough chill factor to keep the book very exciting, but not so much as to be totally scary. There was a murder scene towards the end which I found unnecessary to the story, unpleasant and upsetting.
A 5* rating from me. This was a riveting and fast moving read all the way through, cleverly written to keep the reader guessing. Great entertainment!
The start of the story ensured that I was well and truly intrigued and had to keep turning those pages. I mean how can you murder someone and not know it? Like Konrad, I was desperate to know more and Konrad becomes that wrapped up with Matthew’s story that he delves into something that he will wish he had left alone.
To start with the story very much focuses on Matthew and events surrounding the murder. As it goes along though it becomes more about Konrad.
Konrad is someone that has it all but that still doesn’t bring happiness. There is no love lost between Konrad and his wife. She is happy to play the doting wife as Konrad provides her a lifestyle that she loves and as his manager she seems to boss him around in his work and home life. I did feel ever so slightly sorry for him.
The Camera Lies is a dark and twisted read that had me engrossed throughout. The story takes unexpected turns that at times left me feeling quite breathless. An extremely clever story and my favourite of the authors so far.
His private life looks good on the outside, but his wife Delia is a terrible woman who makes him beg and buy fancy stuff for her to get some action. He’s in love with Lorna, his mistress and is trying to get back with her after he realizes that being with his wife is depressing him.
Little does Konrad know that interviewing Matthew is bringing out a crazy stalker and trouble for him and his family.
This story started out slow, but then started to become a fast pacing thriller that left me on the edge of my seat. The ending was not quite a surprise, but it took awhile to get there.
Will check out other books by this author!
