Named a New York Times Best Thriller of the Year and Best Book to Gift!

"An unsettling and atmospheric thriller that's almost impossible to put down . . . Will keep you guessing right up until its satisfying but unexpected conclusion." ?? Buzzfeed

"Riveting." ?? The New York Times Book Review

The acclaimed author of The Nanny and What She Knew??hailed by stalwarts including Ruth Ware, Liane Moriarty, Tess Gerritsen, and Shari Lapena??returns with another serpentine thriller that cleverly blends atmosphere, tarnished memories, mystery, and twisty secrets from the past into a potent, intense read that will leave you questioning everything you believe.

To tell you the truth . . . everybody lies.

Lucy Harper's talent for writing bestselling novels has given her fame, fortune and millions of fans. It's also given her Dan, her needy, jealous husband whose own writing career has gone precisely nowhere.

Now Dan has vanished. But this isn't the first time that someone has disappeared from Lucy's life. Three decades ago, her little brother Teddy also went missing and was never found. Lucy, the only witness, helplessly spun fantasy after fantasy about Teddy's disappearance, to the detectives' fury and her parents' despair. That was the start of her ability to tell a story??a talent she has profited from greatly.

But now Lucy's a grown woman who can't hide behind fiction any longer. The world is watching, and her whole life is under intense scrutiny. A life full of stories, some more believable than others. Could she have hurt Teddy? Did she kill Dan? Finally, now, Lucy Harper's going to tell the truth.

Cross her heart.

And hope to die.

Even though the ending of this book was less than satisfying, I’m giving this 5 stars because it had one of the best lead ups to it. The main character in this book is going to be one of my favorite mystery/thriller characters going forward. She was strong, incredibly weak, smart, oblivious, and maybe a touch crazy. She lives with her imaginary friend in her head (and sometimes in reality), and I think it brought something so unique to this story. The rollercoaster of emotions kept me reading and reading— especially all the anger I had towards the victim. I’ll definitely try more from this author! ( )

Why do all the novels in this genre always star an unreliable, weak, confused and abused woman who's gaslighted so easily? And frankly, the murderer in this book is disappointing. ( )

A new friend recommended this mystery to me with reservations. Would I recommend it to you? Read my full review here. ( )

This was my first mystery/thriller by author Gilly MacMillian and I ate it up in one sitting. The MC, author Lucy, is an introvert who immerses herself so deeply in her bestselling mystery crime novels that she sometimes can’t tell fact from fiction. The book is told in split timelines. In the past timeline, Lucy is a child, recounting the story of how she and her little brother Teddy got lost one night in the woods… and Teddy never came home. In the present-day timeline, Lucy is in a somewhat tempestuous marriage with her husband Dan, who had wanted to write books of his own, but is now stuck serving as her personal assistant. But when Dan goes missing, and all eyes turn to Lucy, can she prove her innocence? This was an interesting novel, and especially well executed as the main character in Lucy’s book is also the voice she’s heard in her head as a child. You don’t really know who you can trust.

I really enjoyed this novel, particularly the surprising twists. Some loose ends are left at the end, which left one of the story lines incomplete—the only thing that detracted from an overall amazing book for me.

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.
