Husband and wife stand on opposite sides of a divide created by lies and rooted in a dark and deadly past …
In the suspense/thriller novel, Deadly Lies by Chris Patchell, Jill Shannon, fell victim to her stepfather’s cruel abuse as a teenager. Now as an adult, Jill’s made it – she has a successful career and a solid, if not static, marriage to Detective Alex Shannon. Together they live out what seems to be a perfect life in Seattle.
The vow she made as a teenager to never again be a victim lies dormant – until one day a reporter lures her to his hotel room under the pretense of an interview – and suddenly all of it comes rushing back. Jill seeks revenge on the reporter, triggering a series of events that leads Jill down a wormhole of retribution, forcing her to spin an ever-widening web of lies.
Meanwhile, Alex is pulled into a case of a series of murders that began as cyber relationships. There seems to be a familiar fingerprint on these crimes, but Alex refuses to believe the murderer could be someone close to him.
Dead Lies is an intense thriller that Kevin O’Brien, New York Times Bestselling Author of Tell Me Your Sorry called “a taut, fast-paced thriller that grabs you from the start and doesn’t let go. Patchell is a master storyteller with a real talent for creating pulse-pounding suspense.”
This thriller is available in both print and ebook format.
