IF YOU WERE HOOKED ON THE TRAITORS, YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS A GAME OF LIES… THE TWISTY RICHARD & JUDY PICK, SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING THRILLER AND NO.1 KINDLE BESTSELLER


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.

Clare Mackintosh is a genius
READER'S DIGEST
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
CRIME MONTHLY
Seven reality show contestants are stranded in the Welsh mountains, and the name of the game is to expose their secrets. Then, one goes missing . . . Twisty
SARAH PEARSE
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
LIZ NUGENT
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!
LISA JEWELL
Compulsive, thrilling and just so beautifully done

SHARI LAPENA
What great fun this book is - clever plot, engaging characters, and smart, sharp writing. An absolute delight. Perfect for fans of Richard Osman
JO CALLAGHAN
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
