Publisher's Summary

The twisty new psychological thriller from the best-selling author of After Anna, Killing Kate and Copycat

Everyone lies...but some lies are deadly.

For Claire Daniels, life is good. She has everything she’s ever wanted - a career she loves, friends she can rely on and a husband who dotes on her. All she needs is to start a family of her own and things will be even better than good.

They’ll be perfect.

For Alfie, it couldn’t be more different. His life with Claire is built on a lie. A lot of lies. And she can never find out.

Because Alfie has plans for her. Plans which must never come to light. But lies have a way of taking on a life of their own, and when his do, the consequences threaten to destroy everything.

For him and Claire.

My First Alex Lake Book- Awesome!

I had never heard of Alex Lake. I am so glad and fortunate that I now have listened to The Last Lie, and I will be seeking other books by Lake.

This story kept me engrossed until the very end.

A seemingly happy couple is having problems conceiving a child, and things are getting to the point where they need to see a fertility doctor. But, hubby has a big secret in the fertility department. In fact, he has a big secret in general. The story is told from the husband's point of view in the first half of the book, and then it switches to the wife's point of view in the second half.

I hung on the edge of my seat and I so enjoyed Lake's style, along with the story. Highly recommended, especially for those who like psychological thrillers!

Very Intense story

A great book all around! If you're looking for a story that keeps you listening, look no further. Very talented author with an even better narrator. You won't regret this one, I know I don't!! Definitely worth the money. 😀😀😀

Plot Twisting, Mind Mixing Who-Done-It

Alex Lake has written a superb mystery novel. I knew it was about an evil husband and unsuspecting wife, but the story takes a wild turn in the middle. From there on, plot twists abound until the end.

Excellent retelling of a common theme. I especially enjoyed the Audible version!

banal with one dimensional characters

This story was dreadful. The characters were undeveloped, boring, one dimensional caricatures. The dialog for the "evil" husband was downright eye rolling and repetitive. If I had to listen to him say “stupid b**ch” one more time, I was about to scream. The plot twist was SO obvious! Seriously, I could see it a mile away. I fast forwarded through the last hour of the book - I just could not take it anymore. The entire book is a cliche. The narrator was good. I really do not understand the good reviews of this one. Don’t waste your money on this

Overall Good Listen

A little predictable and drawn out, but overall enjoyable. Characters, Claire and Alphie are both evil geniuses.

Really unbelievable child like wife.

Narcissist meets sociopath oh wait which one is which. I could not put up with the wife for almost half of the book so back it went. If you can suspend your disbelief for the whole book than you will like this book. If you want to read about believable people and how they cope this book is not for you. Arlene a Audible reader .

Don't let the description fool you! This book is way more exciting and intense than the summary lead you to believe! Highly recommended.

Twisted & Delicious

A twisted domestic thriller (which are among my favorites). You won't be disappointed. See if you can figure it out before the story ends.
