"A killer premise, genuinely surprising twists and turns and an original, deeply memorable protagonist" - Dervla McTiernan, author of The Ruin
"A hugely-original premise, a guilt-ridden protagonist, a plot that won't lie down. A great debut" - Chris Hammer, author of international bestseller Scrublands
"A gruesome murder, a podcast, now a blockbuster TV series. With the identity of the killer still a mystery, the man behind the broadcasts is desperate for a conclusion. Clever as hell and as timely as it gets, this is definitely one of the must-read thrillers of the season." - J.P. Smith, author of The Drowning and If She Were Dead
"Readers who stay the course will enjoy some vivid writing...A fine, twisty ending" - Booklist
"A truly magnificent story on so many different levels, Trust Me When I Lie should be at the top of everyone's must-read list." - New York Journal of Books
"Benjamin Stevenson's debut mystery is a dark delight with flawed and damaged characters trying to solve a twisted cold case murder. Stevenson's engaging and sure-footed whodunit (originally released in Australia in 2018 as Greenlight) is a twisty delight." - Shelf Awareness
"An outstanding debut from an exceptional new talent, Trust Me When I Lie is an absorbing thriller told with heart and wit. Morality and ambition clash on a journey full of twists as Trust Me When I Lie takes readers from the cut-throat media landscape to a sleepy town full of secrets. Confident, compelling and with a surprise around every corner, I loved it." - Jane Harper, New York Times bestselling author of The Dry
"Stevenson is a splendidly vivid and tricky writer. Readers will be curious to see what he comes up with next. " - Publishers Weekly
