Publisher's Summary

Please note His First Lie was previously published as Two O'Clock Boy.

Do you want a thriller that grips from the first line?

Do you want a thriller to leave you gasping for air?

Connor Laird frightens people: he's intense, he's fearless, and he seems to be willing to do anything to protect himself and those he loves. He arrives in the Longacre Children's Home seemingly from nowhere, and instantly becomes hero and villain to every other child there.

Thirty years later, someone is killing all of those who grew up in the Longacre, one at a time. Each of them has secrets, not least investigating cop DI Ray Drake.

One by one the mysteries of the past are revealed as Drake finds himself in a race against time before the killer gets to him.

Who is killing to hide their secret?

And can you guess the ending?

    "A thrilling debut novel"

    Two o'clock boy is a brilliant debut novel and a promising start to a great new series. The complex, cleverly plotted story, great characters and fast pace make it a very thrilling read. I'm looking forward to the next DI Ray Drake book!
    The narration by Mark Meadows works really well for this audiobook.

    "surprised at how much I enjoyed it"
    Any additional comments?

    I was not expecting much as I had not heard of writer or narrator before, but the narration was excellent and the story drew me in, a few twists along the way and sad when it was finished, -I will definitely be looking for more from both author and narrator

    "Needs more editing"

    This is an overlong, tedious retelling of a favorite storyline. Thrills turn to yawns as e v e r y detail of the conclusion spells The End, thank Goodness.
