First some information about The Shape of Lies, the latest novel by Rachel Abbott.

This is Abbott’s ninth novel and it follows respectable mother, wife and head teacher, Anna Franklyn, who is driving to work when a voice on her favourite radio phone-in programme shatters every hope that she has escaped her dark past. The caller on ‘The One That Got Away’ claims to be her ex-lover, Scott, and in less than a week, he will expose her truth on air. But how is that possible when Scott is dead?

 Meanwhile, Abbott’s much-loved detective, Tom Douglas, needs to find the killer responsible for two brutal murders and unravel Anna’s web of lies to discover what connects her to both bodies.

 Mel Sherratt, bestselling author loved it, she said: ‘I devoured The Shape of Lies. Full of intrigue, secrets and compelling sub-plots that intertwine to a devastating and heart-stopping finish.’
