Book Description


See all titles by Hallie Ephron.

An innocent yard sale jump-starts this stunning stand-alone thriller from Ephron, author of Amnesia and four other mysteries written with Donald Davidoff under the name G.H. Ephron (and one of the Ephron writing sisters), as well as two nonfiction books. High school sweethearts Ivy and David Rose are expecting their first child after years of trying, they're renovating a Victorian house, and David's business has finally become successful.

This debut by the mystery reviewer for the Boston Globe and author of Writing and Selling Your Mystery opens with Ivy and David having a yard sale to get rid of things the previous owner left behind. During the sale, a woman who went to school with them years ago arrives unexpectedly and begins acting rather strangely toward the couple. When this woman goes missing and her car is found nearby with the newspaper ad for their sale circled, the police begin to suspect that Ivy and David are somehow involved.

As the evidence mounts and clues are uncovered, David is charged with murder, and Ivy must find the truth. Ephron doesn't miss a searing beat as she plunges the Roses into an abyss of suspicion. A surprise toward the end provides the perfect twist to this deliciously creepy tale of obsession.

"Chilling, complex, and insidiously creepy. Hallie Ephron’s skilled storytelling produces the perfect suburban couple, then relentlessly twists their lives into distrust, deception, and danger. This compelling thriller proves: when secrets and lies fester into obsession, there’s no statute of limitations on revenge."
— Hank Ryan, Agatha Award-winner and bestselling author of Prime Time

 "NEVER TELL A LIE takes us into a totally familiar, sharply drawn, ordinary suburban world — and then, like the best of Hitchcock, begins to turn the screws until the suspense becomes unbearable and you can’t stop reading until the last, ingenious twist."
— Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Power Play, Killer Instinct, and Paranoia
