He jumped to his death in front of witnesses. Now his wife is charged with murder.

Five years ago, Erin Kennedy moved to New York following a family tragedy. She now lives happily with her detective husband in the scenic seaside town of Newport, Long Island. When Erin answers the door to Danny’s police colleagues one morning, it’s the start of an ordinary day. But behind her, Danny walks to the window of their fourth-floor apartment and jumps to his death.

Eighteen months later, Erin is in court, charged with her husband’s murder. Over that year and a half, Erin has learned things about Danny she could never have imagined. She thought he was perfect. She thought their life was perfect.

But it was all built on the perfect lie.

Another twisty and intense thriller from the great Jo Spain that will keep you guessing until the final pages
Adrian McKinty
The Perfect Lie had me completely fooled - such a brilliantly twisted plot that I just couldn't work out. And on top of that Jo Spain is still making us care so much about the characters. I loved this book and it deserves to fly to the top of the charts

From its killer premise to the jaw-dropping pay-off, The Perfect Lie delivers on every single level. Such a clear, confident voice drives the most compelling of plots. Be warned, once you start reading, you won't put it down again until you unravel the twisted truth. A sure-fire smash hit!
