Book Summary

It all started with just one little lie. But we all know that it never ends there. Because, of course, one lie leads to another...

Growing up, Jane and Marnie shared everything. They knew the other's deepest secrets. They wouldn't have had it any other way. But when Marnie falls in love, things begin to change.

Because Jane has a secret: she loathes Marnie's wealthy, priggish husband. So when Marnie asks if she likes him, Jane tells her first lie. After all, even best friends keep some things to themselves. If she had been honest, then perhaps her best friend's husband might still be alive today...

For, of course, it's not the last lie. In fact, it's only the beginning...

Seven Lies is Jane's confession of the truth--her truth. Compelling, sophisticated, chilling, it's a seductive, hypnotic pageturner about the tangled, toxic friendships between women, the dark underbelly of obsession and what we stand to lose in the name of love.

Media Reviews

"An electrifying psychological thriller... Even readers who suspect where the story is heading should brace themselves for a wild and surprising ride. Kay... is off to an impressive start." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Jane isn't an especially likable character. The value she places on her friendship is relatable right up to the point when it leaves her morally bankrupt...The real tension lies in learning the truth about Jane's intentions—and the person who hears her confession. Frustrating, fascinating, and wicked entertainment." - Kirkus Reviews

"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." - Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Run Away

"Shockingly intimate and scarily insidious. Seven Lies explores the explosive truths behind obsession, love, and a seemingly perfect friendship." - Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Never Tell

"A dark, gripping story with one of the most interesting and compelling narrators I've ever encountered. Highly recommended!" - Shari Lapena, the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

"I loved it from the first page: spellbinding, urgent, creepy, and impossible to put down. Seven Lies is a hugely satisfying novel of deeply disturbed psychological suspense." - Chris Pavone, the New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Diversion

"Seven Lies is brilliant." - Clare Mackintosh, New York Times bestselling author of Let Me Lie

"Dark, vivid, and engrossing. You won't want to put this one down!" - Cara Hunter, bestselling author of Close to Home

"Scalpel-sharp writing and a killer concept...dark, clever, compelling and utterly assured." - Lucy Foley, author of The Hunting Party
