About this deal

When Daniel tells Felicia, “They say that the dead aren’t tied to one place,” a shiver runs through him, and he thinks: “It’s an awful ecstasy, and it feels like the first true thing that has happened this evening” (p. 81). Is facing up to death necessarily truer than the concerns of ordinary life? Do you think extreme experiences can rob people of the ability to involve themselves fully in ordinary life? Later, as he sits by the fire and waits for Felicia to return from the kitchen, Daniel thinks: “This is the afterlife. This is what we dreamed of, in France. Fire, and four walls, dry feet, a belly warm with food” (p. 150). Do you think the act of longing can be fulfilling in itself? Each chapter opens with a sentence or paragraph from what appears to be some sort of military manual, mostly pertaining to how the men should behave under war conditions. I expected these would relate in some way to the rest of the chapter, but I usually forgot all about them as I immersed myself in the actual story. In late 1926, Agatha's husband, Archie, revealed that he was in love with another woman, Nancy Neele, and wanted a divorce. On 8 December 1926 the couple quarreled, and Archie Christie left their house, Styles, in Sunningdale, Berkshire, to spend the weekend with his mistress at Godalming, Surrey. That same evening Agatha disappeared from her home, leaving behind a letter for her secretary saying that she was going to Yorkshire. Her disappearance caused an outcry from the public, many of whom were admirers of her novels. Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found for eleven days. The writing, even at its most harrowing, is suffused with poetry and evocative description . . . a heart-wrenching portrait of psychological crucifixion.”— Literary Review

During this time I published several collections of poems, and wrote some of the short stories which were later collected in Love of Fat Men. I began to travel a great deal within the UK and around the world, for poetry tours and writing residences. This experience of working in many different countries and cultures has been very important to my work. I reviewed poetry for Stand and Poetry Review and later for The Observer, and subsequently reviewed fiction for The Observer, The Times and The Guardian. My critical work includes introductions to the poems of Emily Brontë, the short stories of D H Lawrence and F Scott Fitzgerald, a study of Virginia Woolf’s relationships with women and Introductions to the Folio Society's edition of Anna Karenina and to the new Penguin Classics edition of Tolstoy's My Confession. Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Lynch/Oz’ on Criterion Channel, a Film-Study Documentary Digging Deep Into David Lynch's Influences Linwood Barclay is the #1 internationally bestselling author of seventeen novels for adults, including No Time for Goodbye, Trust Your Eyes and, most recently, A Noise Downstairs. He has also written two novels for children and screenplays.

Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.

The slight autobiographical edge to this play is somehow both touching and mildly depressing: Did things end happily? Would they have ended happily if Nell chose the other path? Is it best to gamble on passion or play it safe with comfort? I don't think questions like this ever become outdated. As the story progresses, we learn what actually happened in Nepal. After what I read in this book, I don’t think I’ll be going to Nepal in a hurry, and will just stay here in West Cornwall with my husband and two dogs.Jane has tried to put her past behind her but someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won't stop until they've destroyed Jane and everything she loves... I always enjoy Barclay's books for their suspenseful thrills and engaging plots, and this one delivers both. I can't talk about this without delving into spoilers so please beware that the resolution and most of the mysteries in the book will be spoiled if you continue to read on.

Jane Hughes has a loving partner, a job in an animal sanctuary and a tiny cottage in rural Wales. She's happier than she's ever been but her life is a lie. Jane Hughes does not really exist.

What an important book this is! In this day and age when people are venerating and idolizing the unprovable words of mere men (i.e. humanism/evolution), how refreshing it is to spiritually feed on the soul-stirring, bible-based creation apologetics contained in this powerful book. I highly recommend THE LIE: EVOLUTION. 5 stars is not nearly enough!!! We not only have LIE'S we have SECRETS, and we know secrets come out too and get revealed when we least expect them. We totally didn’t mean for it to go on this long,” Britanny says. “I just wanted to see my boyfriend. Kayla just kind of went along with it.” First, some positives. There are a lot of characters in both stories, and for the most part, you just do not know whom Emma can trust! Can she even trust her best friends in Nepal or her boyfriend in present-day Wales? Who can say? Not me! The tale also has a markedly sinister feel to it, which I really like. Emma, the protagonist, is very likeable, which to me is always a plus. I am not one of those readers who doesn’t mind a story where there is no one to root for.
