Editorial Reviews

Review

“Twists aplenty in this searing murder mystery should leave readers dizzy, in the best way possible.” Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

The Weight of Lies is a hypnotic, suspenseful page-turner that examines the fraught relationship between a famous mother and her troubled daughter, culminating in spine-tingling twists and turns. Emily Carpenter is THE Southern Gothic QUEEN.” —Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Year

“Filled with twists and turns and simply unputdownable, The Weight of Lies weaves deftly between past and present-day secrets. Carpenter’s spellbinding tale, part mystery and part Southern Gothic thriller, will keep readers hooked until the final page.” —Paula Treick DeBoard, author of The Drowning Girls

The Weight of Lies is a creepy, atmospheric thriller that plunges its heroine into the mystery behind a cult classic horror novel. An intriguing tale of secrets and lies that will keep you guessing as you race to the end.” —Laura McHugh, author of The Weight of Blood and Arrowood

“Fascinating.…An unputdownable read.” Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“A gripping, heart-pounding murder mystery/Gothic thriller sure to give readers chills.…Mystery lovers, don’t let this nail-biter of a good read pass you by!” RT Book Reviews

“Fans of suspense or just finely crafted fiction will find Carpenter’s second outing an addicting read—they might even lose some sleep…” Independent Publisher
