It all started with one little lie . . .

Jane and Marnie have been inseparable since they were eleven years old. They have a lot in common. In their early twenties they both fell in love and married handsome young men.

But Jane never liked Marnie’s husband. He was always so loud and obnoxious, so much larger than life. Which is rather ironic now, of course.

I devoured Seven Lies in less than 24 hours. Such a clever, deliciously dark page turner and a compelling read
Alice Feeney, bestselling author of SOMETIMES I LIE
A dark, gripping story with one of the most interesting and compelling narrators I've ever encountered. Highly recommended
Shari Lapena, bestselling author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR
'Friends forever' becomes a weapon swung with fatal force in Elizabeth Kay's debut. A thriller deftly told through seven lies, the calmly manipulative Jane is a protagonist who will haunt you long after you finish turning the pages. The truth, it turns out, can be far more dangerous than any lie....It's going to be the next massive thriller.
Pandora Sykes
Dark, vivid, and engrossing. You won't want to put this one down!

A chilling and original voice. It's gripping, fresh and unsettling - all the ingredients I love
Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author of LET ME LIE
Compelling, clever, imaginative and beautifully written
Jo Spain, bestselling author of THE CONFESSION
With scalpel sharp writing and a killer concept, Seven Lies is dark, clever, compelling and utterly assured. It heralds the arrival of a hugely exciting new voice in crime fiction
Lucy Foley, bestselling author of THE HUNTING PARTY
Kay's unputdownable thriller follows former childhood friends Jane and Marnie down a devious path littered with secrets, murder and, of course, lies
Compulsive, hypnotic . . . a tale of obsession, grief and the real meaning of truth
Seven Lies takes the idea of the unreliable narrator and spins it on its head. An immersive study of female friendship and loneliness with a scarily reliable narrator who proves that truth is often scarier and stranger than any fiction.
Araminta Hall, author of OUR KIND OF CRUELTY
A compelling take on the obsession that can come with female friendship
