Anything You Do Say: THE ADDICTIVE psychological thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author (English Edition) Formato Kindle
Would you run, or stay and call an ambulance, if it was you that pushed him?
'A terrific premise, delivered with panache' CLARE MACKINTOSH
'Dark and intense . . . an exhilarating, hold-your-breath read!' Prima
It's the end of the night. You're walking home on your own.
Then you hear the sound every woman dreads. Footsteps. Behind you. Getting faster.
You're sure it's him - the man from the bar who wouldn't leave you alone.
You make a snap decision. You turn. You push. Your pursuer tumbles down the steps. He lies motionless, face-down on the floor.
Wait for the police to arrive. For judgement, for justice, whatever that may be. You just hope your husband, family and friends, everyone you love, will stand by you.
Stay silent. You didn't mean to do it. You were scared, you panicked. And no one saw. No one will ever know. If you leave now. If you keep quiet. For ever.
Which will it be?

Joanna has never been able to come to a decision and has always procrastinated over every decision she’s ever had to make. One evening whilst in a bar with her friend Laura a man starts sexually bothering her. They leave early and during Jo’s walk home she hears a man following her. Believing it to the man in the bar she runs along a canal and up some concrete steps, but when the man gets close to her she accidently pushes him down the steps. When he doesn’t move she stands there undecided on whether to ring for an ambulance or run away.
Gillian McAllister has very cleverly written two books in one – of what happens when Jo conceals the truth and the consequences, and the other when she rings for an ambulance and the police arrest her for GBH. The novel moves easily between ‘Reveal’ and ‘Conceal’ proving that once a lie has been told even more lies have to be fabricated to avoid being caught out.
I was completely absorbed with ‘Anything You Do Say’ which I found compulsive reading. I was so involved with the characters that I wasn’t sure how it was going to end, therefore the conclusion came as a great surprise. This is an excellent novel and one I can thoroughly recommend.
The risk of repetition from relating the same story in different ways is avoided. Joanna experiences very different situations in each scenario, so it always felt I was reading something fresh. Supporting characters respond very differently too, dependent on Joanna's choice, so much so, that at times I felt this was a weakness in the book.
The change in Wilf's approach to Joanna that occurs in 'reveal' for example, is never really explained, and does not seem linked to her decision. I struggled to see why Joanna finding herself in the 'reveal' situation would change Wilf's approach to her, while her circumstances in 'conceal' did not.
It was the different portrayals of Reuben however with which I really struggled. The endless tolerance of Joanna's behaviour in the 'conceal' version is very at odds with the his character in 'reveal'.
While I sympathized with both Joanna's, and naturally, particularly the 'reveal' version, I found the other characters very hard to like.
The author states through Joanna, that people are a combination of good and bad, (presumably in case we missed that this was a theme) but I think the bad in Reuben, Laura and 'conceal' Joanna too heavily outweighed the good, and left me a little depressed.
My real issue with the book, and the reason for my so-so rating, is the ending. Without spoilers, it's hard to comment fully, but, suffice to say, what a wasted opportunity!
I'd hoped for something that cleverly tied the two possibilities together, as positive reviews had suggested was the case, and was excited to see how this was accomplished.
Instead, what we got was a Mills and Boon style focus on what, in the context of the life and death nature of the story, felt a comparatively trivial aspect.
Negatives notwithstanding, this book is certainly worth a read. The writing style is reasonably intelligent, and the concept sufficiently interesting that I've discussed it with friends.
I often find books in this genre can be unoriginal and forgettable, and this certainly isn't that. I shall read the authors other work based on my experience with this book.
I found the style of conceal / reveal confusing to start with, and it was especially difficult if I'd had a couple of days between reading, to remember what was happening and in which section of the story!
I did find the ending a bit of a let-down.
