I didn't kill her. Trust me…
When Amy Blahn died on a London rooftop, Layla Mahoney was there. Layla was holding her. But all she can say when she's arrested is that 'It was Michael. Find Michael and you'll find out everything you need to know.'

The problem is, the police can't find him – they aren't even sure he exists.

Layla knows she only has forty-eight hours to convince the police that bringing in the man she knows only as 'Michael' will clear her name and reveal a dangerous game affecting not just Amy and Layla, but her husband Russell and countless others.

But as the detectives begin to uncover the whole truth about what happened to Amy, Layla will soon have to decide: how much of that truth can she really risk being exposed?

"Exquisite writing, a voice that pulls you in, and a story where you simply have to know what happened. All I Said Was True by Imran Mahmood is addictive." - Vicki Bradley

"Wonderfully twisty and kept me guessing all the way to a really satisfying denouement." - Ajay Chowdhury

"This novel haunted me with its lyrical lies." - Jane Corry

"Imran is probably the most exciting crime fiction author in the UK right now and All I Said Was True is further proof of that. The dual narrative is exhilarating, the plot complex and layered, the writing is perfect and the narrator's voice is somehow both unreliable and trustworthy. Superb stuff." - M W Craven

"A twisting path to the moment of murder via a police interview where the truth meets its match. A relentless, absorbing thriller of the darkest paranoid noir." - Janice Hallett

"Mahmood perfectly executes the killer combination of beautiful prose and a bloody great story. I will read anything he writes." - Ayisha Malik

"Imran Mahmood's ALL I SAID WAS TRUE is beautifully complex and arresting. I was swept away in Layla's story, though not quite knowing who I should be trusting and when which - for me - is absolutely key in great storytelling. The way that Imran continues to challenge society, and all our many preconceptions within his books is so powerful." - L V Matthews

"A suspenseful and intriguing thriller, layered with authenticity and told with real poise." - Victoria Selman

"Original and ingenious. There's an authenticity to Imran Mahmood's books that is so rare and rewarding. All I Said Was True is the very definition of a compulsive page-turner." - Chris Whitaker
