Catrina was attacked; Catrina fell. Catrina knows who did it; Catrina can't remember. Catrina has a best friend; Catrina is in love. Catrina is helping the police; Catrina is in hiding. Catrina is in crisis; Catrina is fine. This is Catrina's story. This is not what happened.

Pack of Lies is a novella, and was written with the definition of a novella in mind. Goethe wrote: "What else is a [novella] about but an event which is unheard of but has taken place?" Many of the events which the narrator describes are urban legends: famous events that never occurred.

Set in Auckland and sunny RotoVegas, Pack of Lies is the 2011 digital re-issue of the original 1993 novella, newly revised and available now on Kindle.

A 2005 edition of Pack of Lies was published in New Zealand in Nine New Zealand Novellas, edited by Peter Simpson (Reed). The collection was officially launched at the 2005 Auckland Readers & Writers Festival.
