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.

Critic Reviews

''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.

A PAGE TURNER THAT MAKES YOU THINK

If what you want from a thriller is a gripping page turner that has substance and style then listen to this. Clever, touching and surprising to the last line.

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.

Terrible waste of time

It started off poorly and just got worse. I hung around for the big twist but it was a waste of time. Main character is just a moan and a drain. Bit of advise don't bother!

Dull and uninspiring

The story didn't grab me as I was hoping. I don't like or think the format really works. The prose comes across as if being written by someone trying too hard. Read in a very monotone whiney way. Who gives a monkey's about solar eclipses.

Wandering and boring

Didn't get in with this at all. I found the female narrator droning and couldn't keep awake. Persevered as I thought the story may get better but gave up and returned it.

Riveting until the end

I only finished the book a couple of hours ago and I miss the characters already. Great writing with plenty of depth.

Made me gasp out loud several times and kept me engrossed throughout. Excellent narraration. Highly recommended overall

A bit of a struggle

This took a long time to finish. The initial court scenes were painful and cringe worthy but the book improved dramatically once I got through these chapters. The whole eclipse thing as well as some of the characters motivations were also quite ridiculous. However the twists and overall story was ok. The performances were good. 3.5 star overall

What a twist

I really enjoyed this book. It switches between 2 ain characters view point over 2 time periods. I was actually devastated by the twist without giving too much away .

Very slow, boring first half

I wanted to give up on this book as I felt nothing happened in the first third of the book. It only picked up after half way. The different voices were good though. Definitely not one I'll listen to again.

No Clue By Chapter 5 So I Gave Up!

I held out until Chapter 5 but STILL having no clue what this story was about & not willing to invest anymore time on it, I have cast it aside. Suspense is great but make sure your readers know who is who & what the story is about by Chapter three at the very least. 🙄
