Review

`a fast-moving, action tale of two girls intent on living life to the full. Libby and Becka stumble upon a set-up while squatting in a smart London flat. The owner, an up-and-coming banker, is missing. After eavesdropping on her answering machine, they realise they have taken on more than they bargained for . . . this is a story of friendship, bad money and lies. It made me laugh out loud, but it also reduced me to tears' --Sunday Express

`darkly comic and compassionate' --Mike Ripley, Daily Telegraph

`in a genre where we usually find polemic, melodrama or worthy-but-predictable tragedy, Sheridan has written a proper, character-driven novel instead ... a pessimistic exploration of how ordinary and even good people, once locked into a certain mind-set, can do blatantly evil things yet think them good and right... so well written you never notice the writing' --Glasgow Herald

`poignant, exhilarating, funny' --Time Out

`written in a snappy, quick-witted style, this urban odyssey looks set to gain many admirers' --Edinburgh Evening News

Product Description

The road trip of a lifetime
A UK Top 50 bestseller. Nominated for a Saltire Award, Truth or Dare is a comic, compassionate and powerful tale of friendship, secrets & premeditated murder. Belfast-born architect, Libby & her sassy sidekick Becka are happy squatting in bank-employee, Lorna's London flat till they realise Lorna's been kidnapped. Setting out to rescue her, long-repressed secrets from Libby's Belfast childhood rears its ugly head and the girls embark on a road trip around Ireland that entails a plethora of disguises and double dealing. Will they save Lorna, can Libby comes to terms with what happened to her family and what must the girls do to ensure their friendship survives?

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooky 30 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I very much like Sue 's early novels which have very original and different story lines. This turned out to be spookier and more scary than some but then there's that twist at the end........ a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Truth or Dare - I'm not sure about this one 6 Feb 2013
By LFW
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first Sara Sheridan book I read was Brighton Belle and I thought it was terrific. Ma Polinsky's pockets was different enough to be interesting, but not what I expected. The one about the call girls in China seemed a bit flat, and to be honest I wasn't that bothered what happened to the girls in Truth or Dare. I'm not sure I will read any more books by Sara Sheridan.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing 26 Dec 2012
By LINO
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed other Sara Sheridan books so I thought I would try this novel but I have to say I never really 'got into this book'. I did not like the two main characters and felt not empathy with the plight of the main character. I found the plot a little thin as it didn't really develop, althought the book did give some insight into the troubles in Northern Ireland. An OK read but no more.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Irish adventure for the nineties! 29 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Living in Ireland it's not so often you find a book that describes someone like you having the adventure of a lifetime. I loved Truth or Dare for this reason, and because once I picked it up I had to keep on reading it till I found out the ending (very exciting!). Truth or Dare shows that we're not all James Joyce and Riverdance in Ireland you know!
