Blog Tour: Anything You Do Say by Gillian McAllister

I’m thrilled to be one of today’s stops on the blogtour for Gillian McAllister’s incredibly tense thriller, Anything You Do Say.

Imagine having had a couple of drinks, and then an incident with a sleazy guy freaks you out and puts you into a heightened sense of fear and paranoia as you’re walking home. And then there are footsteps following you.  And you think it’s him – and you act- and he falls and isn’t moving. And your whole life hinges around your next decision. Call 999, stay and help, reveal. Or run, don’t tell anyone, conceal.

The book splits into two different series of events- alternating each chapter between Conceal and Reveal – allowing the reader to follow the chain of events and consequences leading from each side of the decision.

The tension that McAllister creates throughout the book is exquisitely uncomfortable- and the two sides of the story means that the sources of this tension and fear are very different and have different nuances and impacts on the character and the reader.

This is a fantastic read that brings up so many moral dilemmas and day-to-day elements of discrimination. It’s two terrifying tales of the same complex character’s life unraveling – and just how easily this can happen.

Brilliantly written, unique and complex.

The Blurb:

I could run, or I could stay and call him an ambulance. Now it is decision time . . . '

It's the end of the night. You're walking home on your own.

Then you hear the sound every woman dreads. Footsteps. Behind you. Coming fast.

You're sure it's him - the man from the bar who wouldn't leave you alone.

You make a snap decision. You turn. You push. Your pursuer tumbles down the steps. He lies motionless, face-down on the floor.

Now What?

Call 999
Wait for the police to arrive. For judgement, for justice, whatever that may be. You just hope you husband, family and friends, everyone you love, will stand by you.


Stay silent. You didn't mean to do it. You were scared, you panicked. And no one saw. No one will ever know. If you leave now. If you keep quiet. Forever.

Which is it to be?
