She always trusted her husband.
Until he died.
Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed.
But when Maisie starts having nightmares, Clara becomes obsessed that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident.
Who wanted Nick dead? And, more importantly, why? Clara will stop at nothing to find out the truth – even if it makes her question whether her entire marriage has been a lie….
Mary Kubica is a clever and talented author..
When Clara’s husband dies in a car crash leaving her daughter safe and unharmed, she is convinced he was murdered.
Clara, with a new born baby and Maisie, who is now suffering nightmares following the crash, is tired, sad and with a mother suffering from dementia and a father who is also weary, is finding out that her life with Nick may not be as happy and as stable as she thought it was.
Every Last Lie tells a tale that just shows how an event can take over your life, and by not taking adequate care of yourself, like eating and sleeping your mind can play the most horrendous tricks on you, casing you to behave in the most irrational ways.
This dark and disturbing tale is a guessing game, and had me thinking I ‘had it’ then soon letting me know I didn’t. It is a truly imaginative story that is simply engrossing.
Told in two settings, Nicks past and Clara’s present, each character was fascinating and I loved getting to know them. I particularly felt for Clara’s father, he is a man trying to do his best for his bereaved daughter and his ailing wife, while all the time it is he who needs tending.
Every Last Lie is a gripping psychological thriller that I cannot believe made me cry on the very last page.
