About the Book

‘I never told anyone about the letters. It was another of my secrets, one that would . . . lead to places I don’t want to go again.’

When Emily and her husband move to Clairmont, Texas, they believe that it’s the perfect place to build a new life.

At a prestigious party, she meets a group of rich and influential housewives, but soon she begins to suspect that there is more to them than meets the eye.

Then local doyenne Caroline disappears and Emily receives a host of threatening letters. Is Emily’s troubled past coming back to haunt her, or is something sinister happening in this peaceful town?

“'There's an underlying tension running through this psychological thriller that I found addictive. It was well set up, beautifully written and full of atmosphere . . . She knows how to plot and how to keep the reader guessing.'”
- Mari Hannah
“'Lie Still is a potent blast of 21st-century Southern Gothic. Julia Heaberlin brings a poet's craft and conviction to her storytelling . . . She has captured the raw and dangerous Texan sunshine and sprinkled it liberally across the pages of her highly accomplished second thriller.'”
- Kate Rhodes
