'The cruelest lies are often told in silence....'
Why do we lie? Why do we deceive those we love most? What do we fear revealing?
In these 10 tales of deception, master storyteller Roald Dahl explores our tireless efforts to hide the truth about ourselves. Collected together for the first time, stories include 'My Lady Love', 'My Dove', 'Mildenhall Treasure', 'The Parson's Pleasure', 'Henry Sugar', 'The Umbrella Man', 'The Bookseller', 'Vengeance Is Mine Inc.', 'Lamb to the Slaughter', 'Mr Botibol' and 'Man from the South'.
Dahl understood our deepest secrets, desires and fears, and Deception is one of four books - the rest being Lust, Cruelty and Madness - that explore our hidden selves.

Chilling and charming
I loved Roald Dahl as a child and wanted to revisit his work as an adult and I'm so glad I found this collection of short stories.
These tales have the same darkness and humour that was so skillfully weaved into his children's stories, but the settings are a little more mature and grounded.
Rounded off with strong, varied narrators and you have some short-but-sour stories to enjoy.
