"Stunning . . . Ephron doesn't miss a searing beat . . . A surprise toward the end provides the perfect twist to this deliciously creepy tale of obsession."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"[A]n entertaining read with a strong ending and a great lead character in Ivy."--Library Journal
"Lovers of classic mysteries will adore Hallie Ephron's NEVER TELL A LIE . . . [A] richly atmospheric tale. You can imagine Hitchcock curling up with this one."--USA Today
"Suburban noir has rarely been done with such psychological insight or plot-twisting suspense."--Boston Globe

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. Ivy and David Rose, happily married high school sweethearts, are trying to clear out the junk the previous owner left in their glorious Victorian in Brush Hills, Mass., before the birth of their first child. Among the bargain hunters is Melinda White, a high school classmate who's also pregnant. Considered an oddball in school, Melinda worries about "more bad luck" after nearly knocking over a large mirror. When Melinda disappears and no one can remember seeing her leave the sale, the evidence suggests the couple murdered her. 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. (Jan.)
