'The very definition of a compulsive page-turner' CHRIS WHITAKER

I didn't kill her. Trust me... When Amy Blahn died on a London rooftop, Layla Mahoney was there. Layla was holding her. But all she can say when she's arrested is that 'It was Michael. Find Michael and you'll find out everything you need to know.'

The problem is, the police can't find him - they aren't even sure he exists.

Layla knows she only has forty-eight hours to convince the police that bringing in the man she knows only as 'Michael' will clear her name and reveal a dangerous game affecting not just Amy and Layla, but her husband Russell and countless others.

But as the detectives begin to uncover the whole truth about what happened to Amy, Layla will soon have to decide: how much of that truth can she really risk being exposed?

'A relentless, absorbing thriller' JANICE HALLETT

Reviews for All I Said Was True

Mahmood just keeps getting better and better -- Simon Lelic Imran is probably the most exciting crime fiction author in the UK right now and All I Said Was True is further proof of that. The dual narrative is exhilarating, the plot complex and layered, the writing is perfect and the narrator's voice is somehow both unreliable and trustworthy. Superb stuff -- M. W. Craven Wonderfully twisty and kept me guessing all the way to a really satisfying denouement -- Ajay Chowdhury This novel haunted me with its lyrical lies -- Jane Corry A suspenseful and intriguing thriller, layered with authenticity and told with real poise -- Victoria Selman
