"Teasing out the extraordinary within the everyday, FALSE PRETENCES is a contemporary novel in mosiac. Through the separate yet interlinked stories, it traces the lives of two women as they deal with the complexities of love, private terrors, violence and - most precarious of all - hope. There is mystery, wry humour, sometimes tragedy beneath the jaunty surfaces glimpsed through the years, until, by the end, we have encompassed their lives."

"It is a tribute to Lee Langley's controlled style and wit that by the end you long to start the book again." * Daily Telegraph * "A stunning collection of short stories, each of which stands alone, yet is satisfyingly linked . . . Langley is a talented chronicler of the human condition." * Daily Mail * "A series of delicately fashioned cameos . . . tantalising and satisfying." * Sunday Times *
