Roz Levens with Pack of Lies

Graham has taken one risk too many. Now he owes a lot of money to the wrong people, and he is running for his life. Will the women he has duped unite to save him? Is he even worth saving?

“Roz Levens’ work is vicious, in the best way! She has a marvellous tendency to combine crime and comedy with brilliant results and she blends this with wonderfully distinct characters too…There is something unique about the way Levens puts a story together and she always manages to introduce the unexpected in her plots —and at exactly the right time.”

“Sara, Martha, Jude. Their one common link is Graham Parker…but they don’t know it. Then the letters arrive, the photographs, the documents, dropping through their letterboxes into wire baskets, onto doormats. Yes, that’s him…but who’s that with him, whose is that name alongside his? And who is Micaela? Is she just a bit-player in this mystery…or does she know more? Does she know all of them? How? Is she the one gradually drawing them together and, if so, to what end?

“In this skilfully constructed tale, Roz Levens deftly reveals the many lives of Graham Parker: lives invented, juggled or plain thrown away. But such casualness can come at a price…and that price can mean real danger. …we learn that Graham was a whizz at English: ‘His teacher said he had the most wonderful imagination…she’d never met a child with such a grasp of the importance of a plot.’ Now, it seems, he is learning that plots backfire. Truly, he needs help. But one question looms ever larger throughout this assured page-turner—will those he’s discarded be willing to give it?”

Michael W. Thomas, author of The Girl from Midfoxfields, The Portswick Imp: Collected Stories 2001-2016 and The Stations of the Day.

One thought on “Pack of Lies—Roz Levens

  1. ‘Pack of Lies’ by Roz Levens has you gripped from the very beginning.
    To say there are skeletons in Graham’s cupboard is an understatement and her other lifelike characters could be your friends or neighbours.
    The pace and humour of this debut novel leave us hoping that we don’t have too long to wait before Roz produces her next page-turner!
