THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES: WHY WE LOVE A LIAR
The cheque’s in the post. I’m stuck in traffic. You look great in that. We tell lies all the time and hope nobody notices. But every time we lie, we give little clues away. What are those signs and how can we spot them? And why can’t we get enough of liars and unreliable narrators in our favourite stories? Three authors – one of crime fiction, one of domestic thrillers, the other a criminal barrister – discuss the art of deception, the differences between personal and professional lying, and how to spot a liar yourself.
