The Eight Year Lie
She ran from the truth. She will do whatever it takes to hide it.
Jessica returns home one day to find her husband, Patrick, dead. It’s unclear what caused his death and though the shock is huge, she cannot pretend it’s entirely unexpected. The police have questions, and Jessica knows that once they hear the answers her fate may well be sealed.
Eight years ago, Jessica was living another life. She was a different person, and despite what people think, she has changed. Anyway, there was never any proof that she harmed anyone back then. Yet on the day she loses her husband, a ghost from the past reappears.
Louise was her friend once, but that was then. Now, they are strangers. Except Louise seems very familiar – so familiar that it’s like peering into a mirror. Why would she go out of her way to look just like Jessica? Unless more than one person has been keeping deadly secrets…
A gripping tale of desire and revenge, packed with secrets and suspense. Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell and K.L. Slater.
