HIS LIFE WAS A LIE BY JONATHAN S. HARVEY

Retired Sussex Police detective publishes debut roller-coaster thriller that exposes deceit, treachery and ruthlessness at the heart of the British Establishment.

What’s It About?

Sir Roger Knight seems to be a classic British success story – he has a rock-solid business, a comfortable suburban home, an adoring wife and daughter, and a knighthood, to boot.

But underneath the outward trappings of respectability and conformity lies a very different tale whose roots lie in the murky wheelings and dealings of the dying days of the Third Reich.

When Sir Roger and his wife Mary  are subjected to a savage burglary and long-forgotten documents go missing, his whole world begins to fall apart. Dodgy policemen, petty criminals, government agents and ruthless assassins alike will stop at nothing, it seems, to get their hands on the stolen papers and a chain of terrifying, brutal events is unleashed.

The author

Jonathan S. Harvey served as a detective in the Sussex police force for 30 years, often conducting operations using covert techniques. His Life Was a Lie is his first novel and he is currently working on a follow-up.
