Lies She Told

Cate Holahan. Crooked Lane, $25.99 (304p) ISBN 978-1-68331-295-6
Manhattan author Liza Cole, the protagonist of this engrossing psychological thriller from Holahan (The Widower’s Wife), is under pressure from her editor, Trevor, to write a romantic suspense novel that will get her back on the bestseller lists. In the past, Trevor has settled for a rough idea; now he wants an outline. On the personal side, Liza and her lawyer husband, David, are trying to conceive a baby, and their sex life has suffered. In addition, David’s best friend and law partner, Nick Landau, has been missing for a month and is almost certainly dead. Over the next month, as her deadline approaches, Liza draws on her suppressed emotions and memories to create the heroine of her new book, Beth, a young mother who suspects her husband of being unfaithful. Beth’s story line soon takes turns that echo sinister developments in Liza’s own life. Holahan keeps the suspense high by leaving it unclear who’s telling the truth and who’s lying until the surprising denouement. Agent: Paula Munier, Talcott Notch Literary (Sept.)
