Another gripping thriller

Another absolute corker for Mangos – I’ve been looking forward to this one since her brilliant debut Strangers on a Bridge and it doesn’t disappoint. A clever and engaging read – highly recommended.

Cracking read

A beautifully written psychological thriller dealing with family, friendship and domestic abuse. Set partly in an idyllic alpine ski resort and partly within the walls of a Swiss women’s prison. An intriguing read with a twist I didn’t see coming. Super.

A sure bestseller!

Lucy falls in love with Matt while on a backpacking trip through Europe. Matt, well, he falls in lust. After many warnings, 19 year old Lucie does not heed any of them until it is too late. Also, it may have been in Lucie’s best interest to have pursued Swiss citizenship.

Matt is a lying, deceitful, jerk who becomes abusive. He has no room in his life for a wife and son. Matt’s parents are too self-absorbed and only care for “their own”. Lucie’s parents are not keen on Matt, but visit when they can, as they live in England. Lucie is incarcerated in a Swiss rehabilitative prison. This, on charges of killing her husband, Matt…

JP, Lucie and Matt’s son, has been living with his Swiss grandparents who try to avoid visits and phone calls to the prison. The only real peace Lucie has is through her artwork.

What was Lucie accused of in court?
How long was she sentenced for?
Will she ever be free?

One of this year’s best reads! Great character development, flowing timeline and plot.
HIGHLY recommend!

A spellbinding and compulsive read

Louise Mangos bestows the reader with a multi-faceted story and draws from different genres to create a wonderful and thought-provoking read. The novel was both interesting and intriguing throughout and kept my attention all the way. 

The Art of Deception was beautifully plotted with a vivid sense of time and place. Not only was it intense and compelling but it was also an emotional read, with themes of domestic abuse, control and manipulation.

...a crime thriller with a twist.

The Art of Deception by Louise Mangos is a crime thriller with a twist. Lucie is a young woman serving time in a Swiss prison for the murder of her husband. But all is not as it seems, and the destiny of the couple’s young son hangs in the balance. Can Lucie prove her innocence before she loses her son forever?

This novel kept me engaged throughout, as I was thoroughly invested in discovering Lucie’s fate. The addition of the Russian icon was an interesting element to the plotline, and I quite liked the character of Matt’s sister as an ally to Lucie.
