But then I guess that’s testament to the part Claire plays that she even convinced the reader that it’s real. Her acting life has required it more and more and she soon starts to doubt his guilt and the role she’s playing in an attempt to bring him to justice. Our Non-Fiction Range includes: Academic, Photography, Audio books, Business, Cook Books, Craft Books, Health and Fitness Books, Mind, Body, Spirit (Tarot).

Either way I wasn’t that interested as Delaney’s cardboard characterisation made my lasting memory of this novel a disappointing one. It is VERY different to The Girl Before, and I’m now in awe of this incredible author who has now written two utterly enthralling and exciting reads! So she d disguise herself has a hooker when she really is doing to catching the guys cheating on there husband.

The reader is never quite sure if what is happening in Claire’s life is real or simply played out in her head as a movie script as so much of the novel is written as a script narrative. However, I still enjoyed the rest of the story, and I have to admit, I did end up Googling to find out more about “Les Fleurs du Mal” by Charles Baudelaire.

I know what you're thinking, Claire's method's come off a certain way but I'll tell you that what you're thinking is not AT ALL what happens. I’ve seen shy introverts become kings and queens, the ugly become beautiful and the beautiful repulsive. The character could have relayed it back to the reader and skimmed over it - I feel like we had to read it alongside her. Her father lifts her up, placing her feet on her elephant-­trunk suitcase, and she sprawls across the counter, excited, as the manager issues the key cards, handing one to her with a smile. We readers don’t really know what to believe, which is exactly how this type of novel should be proffered.But it’s not what one would think in any way, Claire works for a law firm going undercover to catch cheating spouses since acting jobs are hard to come by for someone without a green card. The reader almost always has to keep guessing what Claire actually believes in until we realise there is no real person behind the mask, and that the mask is no longer an act. Claire is a British actress who is looking for work in America, but can't get hired without a green card.

I couldn't tell what was real and what wasn't - It was almost as if the protagonist had climbed inside my mind and began turning somersaults. But I find this analogy particularly apt to the process by which a novelist needs to have a character undertake a significant shift. It is her hunt for this adoration that brought her to New York City to study at a prestigious — READ : expensive AF — acting school.

Claire is falling in love with Patrick, willing to go wherever he leads, uncaring of how dark that territory may turn out to be, in fact, the darker and more dangerous, the better, all the time approaching all that she encounters with the line, what can I use from that? I really enjoyed The Girl Before so eagerly awaited Delaney’s second novel, Believe Me, which the author (Tony Strong, writing as JP Delaney) notes is a re-work and re-publication of a manuscript published 17 years earlier.
