Publisher's Summary

A breathless psychological thriller from the crime author on everyone's lips, He Said/She Said is the suspense novel of 2017. The twisty, gripping and thought-provoking Sunday Times best seller that listeners can't stop raving about.

Don't be left in the dark.

In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura witnesses a brutal attack.

She and her boyfriend Kit call the police, and in that moment, four lives change forever.

15 years on, Laura and Kit live in fear.

And while Laura knows she was right to speak out, she also knows that you can never see the whole picture: something is always hidden...something she never could have guessed.

What the Critics Say

''A tour de force - a gripping, twisting, furiously clever read that asks all the right questions and keeps you guessing until the very end. I loved it.'' (Ruth Ware, author of The Woman in Cabin 10)
''I'm calling it: THIS is the book I wish I'd written.'' (Clare Mackintosh, author of I See You)
''It's magnificent. Stunningly twisty plot and weep-makingly brilliant writing.'' (Marian Keyes, author of The Woman Who Stole My Life)
''It's SO good...I was carrying it around the house I was so gripped.'' (Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent)
''Not just a tense psychological drama but a meditation on the complex view. Kelly brilliantly uses the eclipse as metaphor, exploring the fact that though we long for black and white, the partial view is all we ever get. Dive in.'' (Susie Steiner, author of Missing, Presumed)
''Twisted, atmospheric and perfectly plotted. Her best yet.'' (Jenny Blackhurst, author of How I Lost You)
''Deliciously tense and twisty.'' (Sharon Bolton, author of Daisy in Chains)
''Erin Kelly keeps you guessing to the very last page, she cleverly reminds us of our own fallibility and gullibility.'' (Adele Parks, author of The Stranger in My Home)
"Superbly twisty and readable." (Jenny Colgan, author of The Summer Seaside Kitchen)
"A clever, compulsive read, which sinks its claws into you and won't let go." (Red Magazine)

    "Gripping & different"

    I listen to a lot of books of this genre but this one stands out. A gripping psychological tale with plenty of twists & characters to love& hate. I also enjoyed the astronomical details which formed the background to the story.

    "Something a bit different."

    I really enjoyed this. More meat to it than so many psychological thrillers I've read recently which are "scanty" to say the least.
    The relationship between the two main characters touched me as I could really relate.
    Totally believable too.

    "Disappointing"

    I chose this book as I had heard the author on Womans Hour and thought the story sounded interesting. Unfortunately, a combination of a predictable story and the dreadful whining intonation of the female reader made it a torture to listen to.
    The endorsement from Womans Hour made me limp to the end but I just could not bear the last half an hour and had to turn it off.
    A waste of money.

    Story
    "Tale of the Unexpected"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. A really good storyline which keeps you hooked from beginning to end, Convincing performances. One I couldn't get to the end of quickly enough to find out how it all panned out and then sad when I did as there was no more to listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A few surprises along the way to keep you guessing.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Broadbent and Helen Johns ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    n/a


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    All is not what it seems.


    Any additional comments?

    Quite different from the usual suspense type stories I read and listen to. A mix of romance, and thrills aplenty.

    "Brilliant writing and narration"

    Beautifully written, in this genre Erin Kelly has written a book in a class of its own. I particularly liked Helen's voice in the narration.

    Story
    "How many untruths does it take to make a tragedy?"

    This is superior, sophisticated psycho-lit: taut, twisting, tense, making a switch-back of your interpretations and sympathies right up to the last few minutes. The framework of interest (near obsession) with watching eclipses is hugely successful, highly original and acts as a extended metaphor for other eclipses (as of love) in the story.

    It's impossible to say much about the story because it would spoil it. Enough to say that Kit and Laura are mutually adoring boyfriend-girlfriend when Kit travels to Cornwall to view the eclipse (his passion) where Laura is to join him the next day. That following day Laura is walking ahead of Kit away from the camp site when she sees a couple having sex. She is sure that she is witnessing a rape and a court case follows where her witness account nails the rapist.

    The narrative voices of Kit and Laura which make up the novel twist and turn in time between that eclipse in Cornwall, and 15 years later when Laura is heavily pregnant and Kit is briefly away viewing an eclipse in the far North. In those intervening years as Laura befriends Beth the rape victim, the lives of Kit and Laura are dogged by menace and debilitating fear. The author's skill is in drip-feeding us with hints and facts about what 'really' happened, some of the dropped allusions just a phrase here and there which explode within the narrative and are developed only gradually.

    The cleverness of it all lies in the fact that there is no one 'real' truth - but there is deception perceived, real, intended and unintended. The narrative voices of Kit and Laura are distinctive and entirely real - and Jonathan Broadbent and Helen Jones capture all the nuances of character and feeling of the words which make up these two entirely real people.

    Listening will possess you from the start right until the final resolution which I guarantee you won't have guessed!

    Any additional comments?

    There were some VERY obvious edits & later inclusions that jarred, no fault of the book, author or narrators.
