“[Raven Lane] sticks to your skin and makes you second guess your assumptions.” —Pique News Magazine
“Amber Cowie has written an unputdownable, suburban nightmare, which calls into question all our safe assumptions about what happens on the other side of the picket fence. Raven Lane will linger with you long after the final page.” —Blake Crouch, bestselling author of Dark Matter
“Raven Lane is a sexy, provocative thriller about devastating secrets and shocking behavior in one bohemian, suburban enclave. With timely themes and boundary-pushing revelations, Raven Lane starts with a bang and doesn’t let up until the final, jaw-dropping twist.” —Robyn Harding, international bestselling author of Her Pretty Face
“Beware! Enter the sexy, sordid affairs of Raven Lane with a clear schedule, because you won’t be able to put this HOT thriller down. Paired with your favorite vino or tea, you’ll find the escape into this suspenseful page-turner full of delicious betrayals. Loved it. Clever. Unique. Hot. Devilish fun.” —Shannon Kirk, international bestselling author of Method 15/33, In the Vines, and Gretchen
“A fateful accident on an otherwise lovely summer evening opens a veritable menu of lust, lies, and buried secrets for restaurateur Esme, her husband Benedict, and their neighbors. Atmospheric and edgy, Raven Lane serves up a satisfying tale of questionable choices and their unanticipated consequences.” —Linda Keir, author of The Swing of Things and Drowning With Others
“Nothing is quite as it seems on idyllic Raven Lane. Inside this carefully curated neighborhood, accomplished artists, writers, and musicians inhabit their beautiful modern homes and each other’s lives, but something sinister lurks just beneath the surface. A terrible car accident unravels a litany of lies and betrayals as police begin to consider the possibility of a murder. This haunting thriller will keep you reading late into the night!” —D.M. Pulley, author of The Dead Key and No One’s Home
“Amber Cowie’s Raven Lane is the sly, sexy, irresistible tale of a family—make that an entire neighborhood—that embraces self-deception as a means of daily survival. The result is a page-turning piece of fictional anthropology that illustrates the tragic differences between what we are, what we imagine we are, and what others want us to be. I’m sorry that it’s over.” —Bryan Gruley, author of Bleak Harbour
“In Raven Lane Amber Cowie delivers a deliciously discomfiting and compelling domestic suspense told from the intimate third-person point of view of Esme Werner, whose version of events appears increasingly questionable after a terrible accident on a balmy September evening shatters the delicate façade of a privileged neighborhood, revealing a salaciously toxic—and deadly—tangle of relationships below. For fans of domestic suspense with unreliable narrators, this tale of marriages and parenthood gone wrong hits the right notes.” —Loreth Anne White, bestselling author of In The Dark
“Another thought-provoking read from Amber Cowie. Raven Lane is a seemingly tight-knit community of close friends but which is shot through with misconceptions and murderous secrets. Interwoven into the tightly written plot is a book within a book, cleverly reflecting the goings on in Raven Lane. Do we all have a monster within us? Keep turning those pages to find out.” —Imogen Clark, bestselling author of Postcards from a Stranger and Where the Story Starts

Less than a year ago, Torn & his husband Aaron moved into the largest home on Raven Lane. Torn was a bestselling author of a book that retells H.P. Lovecraft's most famous work; that each of us has a monster inside us that we spend our lives trying to contain. Torn's book suggests that something monstrous exists in all of us. Aaron is left without a husband & Esme's husband is to blame. Esme has no idea how to comfort a friend who husband has been killed by the man she's married to.
Everyone at the wake knows how Torn had died & who had been driving the car who hit him. Torn is buried and Benedict is arrested & charged with second-degree murder. The motive? Infidelity. Esme & Torn had an affair. They believe Benedict acted out of rage. Bail is set & her dream home ends up as collateral. Benedict insists he didn't even know Esme had been unfaithful. They meet with a lawyer & prepare for a trial. Esme is blamed for the current situation. Without the affair, it was a simple accident. With it, the situation is a lot more complicated. Something awful has happened. But, something even worse is yet to come. The consequences of what happened are far from over.
