‘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.'
'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.'
'Heaberlin expertly spins out a tale of lies and deceit that will keep the reader guessing.'
'Heaberlin's depiction of one tight-knit Texas community is both culturally savvy and politically astute. Her group of rich white women desperate to climb the social ladder is funny as well as sad . . . a carefully wrapped package of Texas soap opera, social and political expose, and well-paced thriller.'
Heaberlin is something special, and clearly an author to whom close attention must be paid.
