Publisher Description

"Wildly entertaining."--New York Times Book Review

From the bestselling and award-winning author comes a wickedly clever and fast-paced novel of greed, revenge, obsession—and quite possibly the perfect murder.


Simon and Vicky couldn’t seem more normal: a wealthy Chicago couple, he a respected law professor, she an advocate for domestic violence victims. A stable, if unexciting marriage. But one thing’s for sure … absolutely nothing is what it seems. The pair are far from normal, and one of them just may be a killer. When the body of a beautiful socialite is found hanging in a mansion in a nearby suburb, Simon and Vicky’s secrets begin to unravel. A secret whirlwind affair. A twenty-million-dollar trust fund about to come due. A decades-long grudge and obsession with revenge. These are just a few of the lies that make up the complex web...and they will have devastating consequences. And while both Vicky and Simon are liars, just who exactly is conning who? Part Gone Girl, part Strangers on a Train, Look Closer is a wild rollercoaster of a read that will have you questioning everything you think you know.

Wild ride!

I thought I was going to need a scorecard to keep track of all the twists and turns in this book! This was my first David Ellis book and I enjoyed it - it was a wild ride. The beginning of the book didn’t grab me, but once the twists started coming, it was hard to put down and I finished it in two days. Simon and Vicky seem to be a typical Chicago couple. Simon is a law professor and Vicky is a domestic violence victims’ advocate, but appearances can be very deceiving in this “perfect murder” story. When beautiful, young, wealthy Lauren Betancourt is found murdered in her suburban mansion, Simon’s and Vicky’s secrets begin to be revealed. This is a fun summer/beach read that I recommend.

Look Closer

An amazingly complex plot so well written that I want to read it again to see all the nuances and clues that I missed on the first read.
