Lie Beside Me: A Novel (Unabridged)
He’s lying next to you. He’s not breathing. . . . And the killer might have been you.
Detective Chief Inspector Jonah Sheens is on the trail in this explosive crime novel from the acclaimed author of She Lies in Wait and Watching from the Dark.
“Secrets and self-sabotage abound in this gripping psychological thriller.”—The Guardian
Louise wakes up. Her head aches, her mouth is dry, her memory is fuzzy—but she suspects she’s done something bad.
She rolls over toward her husband, Niall. The man who, until recently, made her feel loved.
But it’s not Niall lying beside her. In fact, she’s never seen this man before.
And he’s not breathing. . . .
As Louise desperately struggles to piece her memories back together, it’s clear to Jonah Sheens and his team that she is their prime suspect—though they soon find she’s not the only one with something to hide.
Did she do it? And, if not, can they catch the real killer before they strike again?
In this gripping novel, a young woman finds that trying to make sense of her life’s bad choices might prove the most dangerous reckoning there is.
