Book review: Genuine Fraud by E Lockhart

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Permalink

I’d heard a lot – and good things – about E Lockhart’s We Were Liars so the opportunity to read her* latest novel was just too tempting.

And Genuine Fraud is an interesting read. Full of potential. Well written. VERY cleverly constructed. But – depending on your expectations – may fall a little short when it comes to the plot. It’s good (though I note many reviews commented on it being a re-imagining of The Talented Mr Ripley) but if you’re expecting some mystery or some suspense… it’s not really there. At least not in the way you’d expect.
