As soon as I read the blurb for this book I knew I just had to read it, plus coupled with that eye-catching cover, I had to dive straight in. A.B. Morgan has written a few books but I’m ashamed to say that this is the first one of hers that I’ve read. Wow, what a read it was – I was hooked right from the first chapter. I will be reading her other books as soon as I can now!
Stench opens up to a body of a woman being found under the floorboards of Rory Norton’s house. We then jump to Anna who is mourning the loss of her husband, she frequently talks to him and hears him and she wants to learn to ride a motorbike. I loved the two characters of Rory and Anna, Rory is very likeable and I loved how different Anna was. There is also a whole host of different characters throughout the book but I didn’t get confused with all of them.
A.B. Morgan has done a brilliant job with the mental health side of Anna – her experience and knowledge in the field really shines through. The book is quite slow-paced which I loved – the information we were getting throughout the read just made me want to read more. I was gripped and quickly devoured the book.
The lead character weaves the storyline within the setting of his TV interview. An intriguing, fascinating tale takes shape focusing on control, passion, horror, murder and justice.
Ali Morgan is a brilliant new author of psychological thrillers and this is her third thrilling book.
In The Camera Lies there is also a sprinkling of humour. Be prepared to sit on the edge of your seat, bite your nails (I have none left) and laugh. So there you have it. What more could you want from a novel?
The Camera Lies – read it yourself to find out more. No spoilers here!
