\u201cNobody\u2019s ever been arrested for a murder; they have only ever been arrested for not planning it properly.\u201d \u2014 Terry Hayes There\u2019s an old joke about crime novelists and how their internet search history would make them appear to be a murderer, but what if the authors are doing more than imagining crimes? Our latest read transports us to Bristol, England, where it follows a crime writer who finds herself as the primary suspect in a missing person case, for the second time in her life. To Tell You The Truth by Gilly Macmillan In Gilly Macmillan\u2019s latest thriller \u201cTo Tell You the Truth,\u201d the author performs a series of acrobatic plot twists leaving the reader hanging on to her every word until the final page. The story drips with suspense and moves quite quickly after the first 50 pages once the reader learns two things: the protagonist, Lucy, is a crime novelist and her marriage isn\u2019t what she thinks it is. When Lucy\u2019s husband Dan goes missing, the reader is thrown for a loop as they\u2019re left wondering, like Lucy, if she was involved in his disappearance. As a novelist, Lucy has a very active imagination, and her bestselling novels happen to revolve around her childhood imaginary friend, a piece of her imagination that she\u2019s never quite been able to shake. When Lucy sees her imaginary friend out in the world, it leaves the reader wondering just how reliable is Lucy\u2019s mind ... a question that comes into play more and more as Macmillan leaves crumbs about Lucy\u2019s childhood trauma sprinkled about the pages. Macmillan expertly crafts her novel about a novelist to craft a dazzling puzzle as readers try to piece together what happened to Dan and whether or not they can trust Lucy\u2019s unreliable narrations. Readers won\u2019t be able to put down the book as Lucy grows increasingly unraveled by the events surrounding her and teeters toward disaster. From the book jacket\u2026 To tell you the truth . . . everybody lies. Lucy Harper\u2019s talent for writing bestselling novels has given her fame, fortune and millions of fans. It\u2019s also given her Dan, her needy, jealous husband whose own writing career has gone precisely nowhere. Now Dan has vanished. But this isn\u2019t the first time that someone has disappeared from Lucy\u2019s life. Three decades ago, her little brother Teddy also went missing and was never found. Lucy, the only witness, helplessly spun fantasy after fantasy about Teddy\u2019s disappearance, to the detectives\u2019 fury and her parents\u2019 despair. That was the start of her ability to tell a story\u2014a talent she has profited from greatly. But now Lucy\u2019s a grown woman who can\u2019t hide behind fiction any longer. The world is watching, and her whole life is under intense scrutiny. A life full of stories, some more believable than others. Could she have hurt Teddy? Did she kill Dan? Finally, now, Lucy Harper\u2019s going to tell the truth. If you enjoy\u2026 Readers looking for more thrills in their life might also enjoy reading Ruth Ware\u2019s thrillers.
