*** THE BRAND NEW STANDALONE NOVEL FROM THE MASTER OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE ***
'Confirms Nicci French as the giant of the genre, upon whose shoulders other writers stand' Erin Kelly
`It's Nicci French perfection - which, as we all know, is the best kind of perfection. So, so gripping and brilliantly clued' Sophie Hannah
`The Lying Room reasserts Nicci French as the master of duplicity, suspense and sleight of hand' Sam Baker
'The hook of The Lying Room is chilling: a woman discovers the dead body of a man she knows and doesn't tell a soul. From the very first page, Nicci French remains one step ahead of us as we race to unpick Neve Connolly's deadly tangle. Expertly paced, psychologically sharp, thoroughly enjoyable' Louise Candlish
`You know a book's gripping when you sneak away at any opportunity to read it. Meticulously plotted, psychologically astute' Sarah Vaughan
`This book is a pure adrenaline rush!' Jenny Colgan

Neve Connolly looks down at a murdered man.
She doesn't call the police.


`You know, it's funny,' Detective Inspector Hitching said. `Whoever I see, they keep saying, talk to Neve Connolly, she'll know. She's the one people talk to, she's the one people confide in.'
A trusted colleague and friend. A mother. A wife. Neve Connolly is all these things.
She has also made mistakes; some small, some unconsciously done, some large, some deliberate. She is only human, after all.
But now one mistake is spiralling out of control and Neve is bringing those around her into immense danger.
She can't tell the truth. So how far is she prepared to go to protect those she loves?
And who does she really know? And who can she trust?
A liar. A cheat. A threat. Neve Connolly is all these things.
Could she be a murderer?

Praise for Nicci French:
'Too few novelists can combine this level of page-turning suspense with character care and pin-sharp prose' Erin Kelly, bestselling author of He Said/She Said
'Nicci French's sophisticated, compassionate and gripping crime novels stand head and shoulders above the competition' Sophie Hannah
'Stunning' Clare Mackintosh
`A multi-layered plot that keeps you guessing until the final page' Jane Corry
`Fabulous, unsettling and riveting' Louise Penny on Blue Monday
`Masterful' Sabine Durrant
`The best crime novels combine great writing, compelling storylines, and memorable characters. You get all of that in a Nicci French, but you also get something more: a deep insight into what it means to be human, and how to live with pain and loss' Cara Hunter
`Tension-filled, addictive and taut, with beautifully-drawn characters I won't forget. Nicci French just gets better and better' Laura Marshall, bestselling author of Friend Request
`A masterclass' Jane Casey
`Utterly addictive' The Independent
`A vivid, finely crafted performance' Guardian
`Brilliantly crafted . . . masterly control of suspense' Daily Mirror
`Tense, frightening, gripping' Easy Living
`Dark, nerve-tingling and addictive' Daily Express
`Magnificent' Evening Standard
`French leads the field' Sunday Express
'Nail-biting'Marie Claire
'Ingenious' Daily Telegraph

“Nicci French at their best!”

I received an early proof of this one and was so excited- I have loved every one of French's novels; the Freida Klein series is by far my favourite crime series ever- and I was not disappointed.
