The pacing of this novel was excellent. It was difficult to put it down. It takes the reader on an emotional journey with a lot of twists. I really liked how I wasn’t given all the info up front, so the plot was put together like a puzzle.
I liked all the aspects of this novel and would definitely recommend it!

We meet them all in turn, Joe, Maisie and Sam. And we learn, in a riveting narrative their lives since the day when they lost track of each other.
Maisie is in therapy for recurring nightmares
Joe is living rough on the streets until a chance encounter, and,
Sam, the one who went missing all those years ago, turns up with a new life and a shocking tale to tell.
The thing is, all of them know pieces of the true story.
But what is the true story? How reliable are their childhood memories? And what does the past mean for their present?
Helen has woven a mesmerising tale around these three lives, gradually ratcheting up the tension and casting suspicions on just about everything and everyone. An air of foreboding is created and held expertly. You can tell that some malevolent force is at work, its source just out of reach. The story is complemented by a setting and backgrounds that are all incredibly well-researched.
There are twists galore as we get to the truth and twists on the twists, the story grips you and will not let go as we get closer and closer to understanding what really happened and who carries the responsibility for it all.
My recommendation is that you get a copy and give yourself a weekend to absorb it.
The characters are well-rounded and as ever Ms Christmas manages to tap into their emotions and vulnerabilities with consummate skill. There are also some neat twists which I didn’t see coming. Some aspects of the plot stretched my credulity, but I was so gripped that I suspended my disbelief as I rushed towards the gripping dénouement.
In summary, a great read, although readers who have suffered from traumatic childhoods may find parts of the book disturbing.
The plot is expertly handled, and its breadth is truly impressive, ranging from the most vulnerable of society’s rejects to its highest echelons. The characters are well-drawn and entirely plausible, and the writing is a joy to sink into. Lethal Ties is a thoroughly absorbing psychological thriller that builds ominously and inexorably to a terrifying climax.
Helen is a talented writer, her words flow nicely, the book has been well edited and the story is great.
My only criticism would be that it's a bit slow to start with but it does gather pace.
