Tell No Lies
Tell No Lies is the outstanding new thriller from Gregg Hurwitz.
Daniel Brasher is leaving behind his job as a probation counsellor working with hardened criminals to spend more time with his wife, now well again after serious illness. However, nothing is ever that simple . . .
When he finds a scrawled message in the post at work - 'admit what you've done or you will bleed for it. You have 'til midnite' - he is horrified but relieved to discover it's not addressed to him. Then he learns that the intended victim is already dead.
More death threats signal a series of gruesome, seemingly inexplicable murders. Until a note is addressed to Daniel himself. And with the clock ticking he must discover who wants him dead. And why. Or become the next victim . . .
Perfect for fans of Harlen Coben and Linwood Barclay, Tell No Lies is Gregg Hurwitz's best thriller yet, guaranteed to keep readers up all night.

In this thrill-packed stand-alone from Thriller Award finalist Hurwitz (The Survivor), Daniel Brasher, a counselor working with ex-cons in San Francisco, receives an anonymous, semi-literate letter in his mailbox that reads: "admit what youv done. or you will bleed for it." The letter is actually addressed to someone else, a man who, Brasher soon discovers, has just been brutally murdered. When he receives two more threat letters, each addressed to a new person, it becomes clear that the killer is sending a message. Brasher must examine the messy entanglements of his life to discover just why the killer is targeting him in this fashion. While at times a bit cloak and dagger once Brasher looks in a standing mirror only to realize that "beyond the tilted bottom frame of the mirror" the killer's boots are peaking out the mystery lover will want to carry though until the somewhat strained end to learn the link between Brasher and the murderer.
