Summary

Anna knows what lies look like. She can see untruths spill from heads and turn the air bright orange. Only her sister knows about Anna's synaesthesia and how she can read a person's emotions - even when they're trying to hide them. 

When she gets a job as a Mother's Help to a family whose niece, Lily, is missing, Anna is given the lost girl's room, and the mystery around Lily begins to haunt her. 

As rumours and gossip surround the family, Anna becomes increasingly obsessed with the missing girl. But the more she learns, the fewer people she dares trust - and the one the fingers are pointing at is the one person Anna knows to be innocent. 

She can see his colours. She just has to find a way to prove it.... 

Lies colour the air orange, guilt changes it to brown, then violence turns it black.

Gripping read

The story had me held tightly in its grip from start to finish, utterly compelling. The writing has such texture bringing the colour and the surroundings bursting into life.

The twists and turns and the character’s emotional complexities keep you guessing and in the story’s hands the whole time.

A fabulous book, highly recommended!
