‘A breathless psychological thriller from the crime author on everyone’s lips, HE SAID/SHE SAID is *the* suspense novel of 2017’
Laura and Kit are in Cornwall it’s 1999, they are there for the eclipse. On the way back to their tent after the event Laura finds a purse, follows a trail of coins and stumbles upon a man and woman – Jamie and Beth. Laura realises all is not right. Kit catches up just as Jamie walks away so Laura sends him off to follow. Laura rings the police.
Thus begins a series of events which have Laura and Kit changing their names, moving home and living in fear for the next seventeen years.
The story is told by Kit and Laura in alternate chapters jumping back and forth over the years, overarching sections are linked to phases of the eclipse. I found this style of writing detracted from the fluid reading of the book although I understood why it was used – partly for the shock value, partly to build tension, partly to make the book stand out – it irked. You may not be bothered by this and so the book should be even better for you.
There are so many of these psychological thrillers available to read, I have read some, with He Said/She Said Erin Kelly writes well and provides an interesting and unique tale.
This is a good book telling a story of consequences when we lie, of guilt and of actions we take because of the lies and guilt and those consequences. It’s worth a read.
