Headline
27 October 2020
The most mesmerising and unsettling thriller you'll read this year: if lies are dangerous, the truth can be catastrophic . . .

'A hugely exciting new voice in crime fiction' Lucy Foley
'The new face of domestic noir' Evening Standard
'One of the most compelling narrators I've ever encountered' Shari Lapena
'A protagonist to rival Villanelle' Cosmopolitan

It all started with one little lie . . . Jane and Marnie have been inseparable since they were eleven years old. They have a lot in common. In their early twenties they both fell in love and married handsome young men. But Jane never liked Marnie's husband. He was always so loud and obnoxious, so much larger than life. Which is rather ironic now, of course. Because if Jane had been honest - if she hadn't lied - then perhaps her best friend's husband might still be alive . . . This is Jane's opportunity to tell the truth, the question is: Do you believe her?

Reviews for Seven Lies

With scalpel sharp writing and a killer concept, Seven Lies is dark, clever, compelling and utterly assured. It heralds the arrival of a hugely exciting new voice in crime fiction A dark, gripping story with one of the most interesting and compelling narrators I've ever encountered. Highly recommended A chilling and original voice. It's gripping, fresh and unsettling - all the ingredients I love 'Friends forever' becomes a weapon swung with fatal force in Elizabeth Kay's debut. A thriller deftly told through seven lies, the calmly manipulative Jane is a protagonist who will haunt you long after you finish turning the pages. The truth, it turns out, can be far more dangerous than any lie....It's going to be the next massive thriller. You NEED to read this one. So very unsettling! I devoured Seven Lies in less than 24 hours. Such a clever, deliciously dark page turner and a compelling read Dark, vivid, and engrossing. You won't want to put this one down! SEVEN LIES is a relentless, chilling story of what happens when friendship becomes obsession. Keep the lights on - you'll be turning pages deep into the night with this one
