THE INTERNATIONAL NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR
'A TSUNAMI OF A THRILLER. This may well be Gardner’s best work' - DAVID BALDACCI
One death might be an accident.
Two looks like murder.
A man is shot dead in his own home, and his pregnant wife, Evie, is found with the gun in her hands.
Detective D.D. Warren instantly recognises her. Sixteen years ago, Evie also shot her own father. That killing was ruled an accident.
D.D. doesn’t believe in coincidences. But this case isn’t as open and shut as it first appears, and her job is to discover the truth.
Evie might be a victim.
Or she might be about to get away with murder again.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The main characters in this engrossing crime thriller kept popping up in our thoughts as we went about our day. Two men are fatally shot 16 years apart—and they’re both found dead beside the same woman. Lisa Gardner unravels this mystery with three voices: no-nonsense Boston homicide detective D.D. Warren; confidential informant (and hardened skeptic) Flora Dane; and murder suspect Evie Carter, the shy and confused teacher found holding a gun next to her husband’s bullet-riddled body. Never Tell’s trio of antiheroines owned our attention right up to the book’s dark and satisfyingly realistic big reveal.
