Description

If you only read one thriller this year...

"A great modern gothic. Ellison outdid herself-- what an ending!" --Catherine Coulter, #1 NYT bestselling author of VORTEX.

Fast-paced and brilliantly unpredictable, J.T. Ellison's breathtaking new novel invites you to a wedding none will forget--and some won't survive.

Jutting from sparkling turquoise waters off the Italian coast, Isle Isola is an idyllic setting for a wedding. In the majestic cliff-top villa owned by the wealthy Compton family, up-and-coming artist Claire Hunter will marry handsome, charming Jack Compton, surrounded by close family, intimate friends...and a host of dark secrets.

From the moment Claire sets foot on the island, something seems amiss. Skeletal remains have just been found. There are other, newer disturbances, too. Menacing texts. A ruined wedding dress. And one troubling shadow hanging over Claire's otherwise blissful relationship--the strange mystery surrounding Jack's first wife.

Then a raging storm descends, the power goes out--and the real terror begins...

You won't be able to guess what happens in the end!

Review quote

Praise for J.T. Ellison

"J.T. Ellison weaves the old and the new, art and history, mystery and love story into one stunning tapestry of a novel. Elegant, propulsive, and utterly unputdownable Her Dark Lies is the work of one of our most talented thriller writers at the very top of her game." --Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of CONFESSIONS ON THE 7:45

"I loved Her Dark Lies. A great modern gothic. Ellison outdid herself-- what an ending!"
--Catherine Coulter, #1 NYT bestselling author of VORTEX

"Stunning. Her Dark Lies is a gorgeously atmospheric thriller, a brilliant contemporary twist on a beloved classic. Beautifully written, psychologically chilling and gaspingly surprising, J.T. Ellison proves she's our new Daphne DuMaurier." --Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today bestselling author of The First To Lie

"Mesmerizing...Fans of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca will want to check out this compulsively readable tale." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review on Her Dark Lies

"A compulsive, twisty thriller that is so deftly crafted, you're left wondering who to trust. A highly addictive and deliciously tense read, Her Dark Lies is fast-paced and full of suspense. This book is a stunner! Readers are going to love it. I'm a forever fan, and I want more."
-- Kerry Lonsdale, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post bestselling author

"[A] high-tension thriller...Alternating points of view raise the suspense, blurring the lines between what's true and false." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Good Girls Lie

Wonderful... A one-more-chapter, don't-eat-dinner, stay-up-late sensation. --Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author, on Lie to Me

Comparisons to Gone Girl due to the initial story structure are expected, but Ellison has crafted a much better story that will still echo long after the final page is turned. --Associated Press on Lie to Me
