A Game of Lies Summary

A Game of Lies: a twisty, gripping thriller about the dark side of reality TV by Clare Mackintosh

They say the camera never lies.
But on this show, you can't trust anything you see.

Seven reality show contestants arrive in the Welsh mountains to compete for a life-changing prize, not realising what they're truly signing up for.

Each stranger has a secret - and the show will force them to expose one another live on air.

It's not long before things take an even darker turn, and Detective Ffion Morgan is summoned to untangle the truth behind the scenes.

And when a murderer strikes, every one of Ffion's suspects has an alibi . . . and a secret worth killing for.

Twisty and clever, with layered characters, A Game of Lies takes readers to some very dark places. Another deeply enjoyable mystery from a talented storyteller -- KARIN SLAUGHTER
What great fun this book is - clever plot, engaging characters, and smart, sharp writing. An absolute delight. Perfect for fans of Richard Osman -- SHARI LAPENA
This brilliantly plotted whodunnit kept me guessing from the first page to the last. A Game of Lies is expertly paced and the writing flawless. Detective Ffion Morgan is a breath of fresh air - clever, witty and passionate about her job and a joy to spend time with! The very definition of a page turner -- SARAH PEARSE
A propulsive and topical thriller set against the beautiful backdrop of the Welsh mountains - fearless, fiery and funny DC Ffion Morgan is fast becoming my new favourite cop -- T.M. LOGAN
Tightly plotted and meticulously paced, packed with suspects, twists and turns, A Game of Lies is Clare Mackintosh at her best. It's everything you want from a thriller - and then some. Hugely enjoyable -- ALEX MICHAELIDES
Dark, devilish, witty and wonderful. A Game of Lies is a frantic, twisting, mystery yet filled with humour and heart -- CHRIS WHITAKER
Ffion is back! With a fresh case and a brilliant cast of reality TV wannabes entering the Welsh mountains, the stage is set for another gripping mystery. Sharply written, wickedly fun, and smartly plotted - A Game of Lies is a joy from beginning to end -- LUCY CLARKE
A Game of Lies has everything; a clever plot, a glorious setting, engaging characters and buckets of tension. What more could you want? -- BA PARIS
If you thought reality TV couldn't get any worse, meet Exposure. The fabulous Ffion Morgan is back in this taut whodunnit that will keep you guessing -- JANE FALLON
I loved everything about this book - a brilliant, high-concept thriller with plot twists that made me gasp, and wonderful characters that had me laughing out loud and wincing in horror. I was rooting for DC Ffion Morgan and Dave the Dog so hard I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It is of course, superbly plotted, paced and written, but it is the characters that set this above most crime series, and I can't wait to find out what happens next -- JO CALLAGHAN
Fans of Clare Mackintosh have something great to look forward to. Deeply rooted in the glorious Welsh countryside, Ffion is the sparky bilingual cop you didn't know you needed and now she's investigating a death in a reality game show, but is it a game or a trap? Another hit! -- LIZ NUGENT

A classic whodunit meets reality TV in this twisty and clever page-turner . . . A far richer read than the average police procedural - but without ever sacrificing the procedural bit, which twists unguessably along * READER'S DIGEST *
