Product description


This is a tense nerve-shredder that wrong-footed me again and again, leaving the hairs on the back of my neck standing up. There's nothing more terrifying than watching someone disintegrate when love takes a wrong turn. -- Val McDermid This is the smartest thriller we've read in a while . . . It's twisted and thrilling, and you will zip through it. * Goop * This gripping and very scary tale of obsessive love is a tour de force * Irish Independent * Compelling . . . this fine novel shines a light on how our darkest moments shape our future * ipaper * Beautifully lyrical, infused with a kind of anticipatory dread that grips you from the very beginning. * Birmingham Post * Compelling * Irish Times * This compelling and unsettling thriller will have you totally gripped! * The Sun (Fabulous Magazine) * A remarkable debut from a remarkable author * Shots * A chilling read that we couldn't put down * Bella * What a narrator, and what a plot! Toxic friendships don't get more toxic than this. * Prima * We're in * Stylist * A slick debut ... original and clever * Woman's Weekly * Chilling * Readers Digest * The new face of domestic noir * Evening Standard * What a narrator, and what a plot . . . I was absolutely hooked. Toxic friendships don't get more toxic than this * Prima * A highly entertaining, pitch-dark exploration of an intense and toxic friendship * Sunday Mirror * With a hold-your-breath moment near the end, we can't stop thinking about it * Heat * Chilling and unusual, we couldn't put it down * Closer * An electrifying psychological thriller . . . even readers who suspect where the story is heading should brace themselves for a wild and surprising ride. * Publishers Weekly * Elizabeth Kay's debut is a gorgeously narrated and scarily real account of friendship-turned-fixation. You won't be able to put it down -- Christina Dalcher, author of VOX Superbly controlled writing, a captivating voice and a brilliantly plotted story about a toxic friendship -- Ali Land, author of GOOD ME, BAD ME I loved it from the first page: spellbinding, urgent, creepy, and impossible to put down. Seven Lies is a hugely satisfying novel of deeply disturbed psychological suspense. -- Chris Pavone, author of THE PARIS DIVERSION Brilliantly twisty but also so insightful of human nature: this is a chilling portrayal of an obsessive relationship -- Michelle Frances, author of THE GIRLFRIEND A pacy domestic thriller sure to keep you reading well past bedtime. Kay holds a mirror up to female friendship and the result is both relatable and utterly chilling -- Sarah Langford, author of IN YOUR DEFENSE A compelling take on the obsession that can come with female friendship * Image * Seven Lies takes the idea of the unreliable narrator and spins it on its head. An immersive study of female friendship and loneliness with a scarily reliable narrator who proves that truth is often scarier and stranger than any fiction. Shockingly intimate and scarily insidious. Seven Lies explores the explosive truths behind obsession, love, and a seemingly perfect friendship -- Lisa Gardner, author of FEAR NOTHING I devoured Seven Lies in less than 24 hours. Such a clever, deliciously dark page turner and a compelling read -- Alice Feeney, author of SOMETIMES I LIE With a protagonist to rival Villanelle, you'll love this sharp, original and seductive thriller, which turns the idea of an unreliable narrator on its head. * Cosmopolitan * Compulsive, hypnotic . . . a tale of obsession, grief and the real meaning of truth * Red * Kay's unputdownable thriller follows former childhood friends Jane and Marnie down a devious path littered with secrets, murder and, of course, lies * i * Compelling, clever, imaginative and beautifully written -- Jo Spain, author of THE CONFESSION SEVEN LIES is a relentless, chilling story of what happens when friendship becomes obsession. Keep the lights on - you'll be turning pages deep into the night with this one -- Harlan Coben, author of FOOL ME ONCE You NEED to read this one. So very unsettling! -- Lesley Kara, author of THE RUMOUR Seven Lies is the perfect psych thriller - smart, dark and morally ambiguous. I loved it. -- Tammy Cohen, author of WHEN SHE WAS BAD Dark, vivid, and engrossing. You won't want to put this one down! -- Cara Hunter, author of CLOSE TO HOME 'Friends forever' becomes a weapon swung with fatal force in Elizabeth Kay's debut. A thriller deftly told through seven lies, the calmly manipulative Jane is a protagonist who will haunt you long after you finish turning the pages. The truth, it turns out, can be far more dangerous than any lie....It's going to be the next massive thriller. -- Pandora Sykes A chilling and original voice. It's gripping, fresh and unsettling - all the ingredients I love -- Clare Mackintosh, author of LET ME LIE Breathtakingly good - I devoured Seven Lies in a single weekend. A phenomenal debut. With scalpel sharp writing and a killer concept, Seven Lies is dark, clever, compelling and utterly assured. It heralds the arrival of a hugely exciting new voice in crime fiction -- Lucy Foley, author of THE HUNTING PARTY A dark, gripping story with one of the most interesting and compelling narrators I've ever encountered. Highly recommended -- Shari Lapena, author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR
