    Unpredictable Ending

    Claire Wright is a British immigrant in NYC with a passion for acting.  While waiting for her big break, she moonlights helping a private investigator catch cheating spouses.  Until one night, a client is brutally murdered.  Was Claire the last person to see the client alive?  Did Claire go too far and commit murder? Another great book by JP Delaney! I should have known better than to think I had Believe Me all figured out halfway through.  It is a roller coaster ride with an epic conclusion.  This book is only similar to his previous book, The Girl Before, was my favorite book of 2017 because of it’s twisted ending that had me floored.   It is very heavy on theater as a whole as well as heavily focused on the poet Charles Baudelaire making the extreme research very apparent.   However, I did take one star away because although the main character, Claire, was dark and complex, I couldn't feel connected to her.  She seemed very self-centered and shallow for most of the book.  This is told mostly in Claire's perspective with the occasional input from other characters in script form (again, heavily focused on theater).     For those who may be sensitive to certain themes or triggered: there was mild foul language, graphic violence, sexually explicit scenarios, mental illness, stalking, and manipulation. Please note: An electronic ARC of this book was generously provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    J.P. Delaney delivered a well written suspenseful

    3 stars Review by Nancy Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Believe Me by J.P. Delaney was deviant and complex. A thriller with a lot of twists and turns. Claire is a struggling actress looking for a job, limited due to her immigration status. When the opportunity for a cash paying job arises, she takes it. She is a decoy for a group of divorce attorneys, her job is to entice married men into cheating on their spouse, to prove that they are in fact cheaters. When the wife of a suspected cheating husband turns up dead, she is given the opportunity to help the police capture the murderer. In exchange for a green card, she is to go undercover and find out if the husband was indeed the one to commit the crime. Claire was out to do a job, but in the process started having feelings for Patrick, who is believed to be the murderer, or at least that was my take on it. Claire could have been acting the entire time and it just seemed like her feelings were real, but it could have all been a lie. Although the point was to find the murderer, you get sidetracked by the relationship that starts up between Claire and Patrick. It is interesting to say the least. This book was full of twists and turns, at times it was a little hard to follow. It was deceiving until the very last page. As a reader you don’t know what is real, and what is not. I feel like it ended and we still didn’t get any real answers. Definitely not the ending I was expecting, nonetheless J.P. Delaney delivered a well written suspenseful thriller.
