For those who haven’t yet obtained their copy, here is a short synopsis of this psychological family thriller.
TISSUE OF LIES
Julie Simpson had always had a vague suspicion that the dear couple who’d raised her, were not her real parents. Much to her horror, she discovers that not only are her fears about her origins well founded, but unbelievably, this same couple had somehow been involved with abducting her when she’d been just a baby.
Julie longs to find out the truth, but is reluctant to start anything that might end up with her parents being prosecuted for her abduction; she loves them and wants to protect them. Ultimately however, the desire to know her origins wins, and she secretly seeks out her real parents and forms a relationship with them. Owing to the necessity to protect her mum and dad, it’s a relationship formed on lies.
Julie’s husband John, who is in on the secret, fears there is something odd about her new found parents, particularly her mother Jeanette, who strikes him as being insincere. However, the uncanny resemblance between her and his wife Julie, quickly dispels his fears; they look so alike that he cannot doubt they are mother and daughter. As the relationship deepens, John too forgets his initial fears.
Perhaps he would have been wiser to heed his instincts, for all is not as it seems; there is something odd about Jeanette. Even her husband Arthur begins to notice her changing. Yet even he is totally ignorant of the conniving lengths she is prepared to go to wreak her revenge. Surprisingly, her revenge is not aimed at her daughter’s abductors, for there is another, even older score that she wishes to settle. A tale of lies, deceit, greed, revenge and much more.
