Publisher's Summary

Sam is 17, starving herself and longing for oblivion. Her sister, Jena, is mentally scarred and desperate to remember. Between them, they share secrets too terrible to recall.
Eighteen months earlier, Sam was still full of hope: hope that she could piece together Jena's fragmented memory after the vicious attack that changed their family forever. But digging into the past unearthed long-hidden lies and betrayals, and left Sam feeling helpless and alone in a world designed to deceive her.
Now, in a last bid to save her from self-imposed shutdown, Sam's therapist is helping her confront her memories. But the road to recovery is a dangerous one. Because Sam has not only been lying to her doctors: she's been hiding dark secrets from herself.

This novel would make a 5 star novella!

My Sister and Other Liars is a compelling story made much, much worse by at least 5 or more hours of severe boredom to which the reader/listener must suffer through to get to the end. It should be a 3 to 4 hour novella. Actually, one can get almost the full impact of the story by listening to the first hour followed by the final two hours. British author Ruth Dugdall has written at least 10 prior novels all of the psychological/crime thriller genre, so she is not a novice writer. The good news is that with a Kindle Unlimited membership the cost of the novel was only $1.99.

Narrator Henrietta Meire deserves extra recognition for her outstanding narration which is the only factor that kept me listening. She also narrated the wonderful DI Nikki Galena "on the Fens" series by Joy Ellis.

Good story, poor narration

What did you like best about this story?

Not so much a whodunit but a 'what has she done?', the main character of this crime story is being treated for anorexia in a hospital special unit. While the crime story had enough twists to hold my attention, the aspect that really fascinated me was the insight into the mind, motives and tricks of someone suffering from this distressing condition.

How could the performance have been better?

There were times when I wondered whether the narrator really was a professional actor. While she did a reasonable job with Sam, the main character, she fell down badly with other characters including the worst Scottish accent I've ever heard (it had touches of Lancashire and heaven knows what else!) and two appalling eastern Europeans. The psychologist was pretend posh and Sam's mother and sister were both squeaky and shrill. This was extremely off putting and made it difficult for me to imagine the characters.

Could you see My Sister and Other Liars being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

I think this would make a great TV series, with the opportunity to film the claustrophobia of the hospital unit as well as lots of different locations as Sam describes her search for the truth. Sam and her fellow patients are teenagers so would probably be unknowns. Tom Burke (Cormoran Strike) would make a great psychiatrist and Lesley Sharp could play mum.
