Never Tell a Lie: A Novel of Suspense

Status: Featured Selections


Like an Alfred Hitchcock thriller, this realistic novel begins in an everyday suburban situation and rapidly escalates into fast-breaking terror and uncharted suspense.


A yard sale at an old Victorian house, hosted by a young couple, the wife eight months pregnant with their first child. Among the eager bargain hunters is a barely recognized former classmate of these happily married high school sweethearts. This aggressive, nervous woman, also expecting, talks her way into the aging mansion. She is never seen again. Suspicion begins to slip around the necks of the young couple; when incriminating evidence is found, the husband is arrested for murder. The wife, left to investigate on her own, begins to realize that she scarcely knows the man she married. What she doesn’t yet know is that the surprises have just begun…..

I could not put this book down!  Typically I never read thrillers or mysteries (I'm kind of a snob about what I read), but the author's last name and the synopsis in the featured selection group grabbed me. The characters and plot were tight and well-drawn.  Definitely recommend!
