Internationally bestselling author Amy Lloyd's novel ONE MORE LIE (Hanover Square Press Trade Paperback Original; May 28) is a harrowing tale that begins with 10-year-old Charlotte and Sean—her best friend from the wrong side of the tracks—are found guilty of a violent crime so heinous that they are tried as adults.  

"I'm a huge fan of Amy's writing and I read One More Lie pretty much overnight. This is another incredible book from Amy.... I found it gripping, intriguing, sinister and it really had me hooked from the first page! I will definitely be recommending it to everyone!"—Karen Hamilton, author of The Perfect Girlfriend

"A chilling, tragic story that feels like you're reading behind the scenes in a real criminal case."—Araminta Hall, author of Our Kind of Cruelty 

"I read it in a day. Superb. I'll be thinking of this for ages to come. An absolute masterclass in suspenseful storytelling."—Jo Spain, author of The Confession 

"Written with experience and style... a thriller, a chilling one an' all."—Annie Clarke, Frost Magazine 

"Wow! What a compulsive, chilling novel. Both Charlotte and Sean are so thoughtfully and believably drawn, I felt almost as if I was intruding on their most private of thoughts - it makes it a really sinister and yet ultimately tragic story. I will definitely be recommending it."—Phoebe Locke, author of The Tall Man

Charlotte wants to start fresh. She wants to forget her past, forget prison, and, most of all, forget Sean. But old habits die hard. Despite the ankle monitor she must wear as part of her parole agreement and frequent visits to her therapist, she soon finds herself sliding back towards the type of behavior that sent her to prison in the first place. The further down that path she goes, however, the closer she gets to the crime that put her in prison all those years ago. And that’s the one memory she can’t face. Until, one day, Sean tracks her down.

As the story builds, Lloyd teases and hints with glimpses of Charlotte’s troubled past, culminating in a shocking conclusion that will leave readers chilled to the bone. For fans of Sometimes I Lie and Behind Her Eyes, Amy Lloyd flexes her muscles with a crime fiction novel of unyielding suspense, creeping paranoia, and dark temptation that peers into the horrors that lurk in the human mind.

Amy Lloyd studied English and creative writing at Cardiff Metropolitan University.  She won the Daily Mail First Novel Competition for her first novel, The Innocent Wife in 2016.  She lives in Cardiff, Wales, with her partner and two cats.
