Secrets, lies, rape and a secretive band of crazy, super rich Texan wives make this murder mystery cum family drama a pretty riveting read.

Pregnant with their longed for first child Emily and Mike leave New York for the promise of more space and less stress in the small Texan town of Clairmont.... But hidden secrets from Emily’s past and dangerous secrets from the present collide with deadly consequences.

This follow-up to Playing Dead is great for fans of Sophie Hannah or Nicci French.

Lie Still Synopsis

A New Town - Clairmont, Texas is home to some of the South's most wealthy and established families. When Emily Page and her husband Mike move there from New York City, so Mike can become the new sheriff, they believe that it's a place where they can build a new life for themselves. A New Start - Pregnant Emily is soon invited to a prestigious lunch hosted by local doyenne Caroline Warwick. There she meets Clairmont's rich housewives, but soon discovers that under the veneer of respectability lies shifting loyalties and dangerous secrets. When Caroline Warwick disappears, Emily wonders if any of the well-bred Southern ladies in Caroline's circle could have wanted her harmed. What was the hold that Caroline had over them and what was Caroline herself trying to hide? As Emily begins to search for clues about Caroline's disappearance, secrets from her own troubled past start to come to light. Have her problems followed her to Clairmont, or is there something more sinister going on closer to home?
