Antonia Lively Breaks the Silence

(2013)
A novel by

 
 
A literary thriller about a mysterious death and an ambitious young novelist, "full of delicious prose" (Entertainment Weekly).

Following the death of her husband - which may have been an accident, a suicide, or perhaps even murder - Catherine Strayed is living a quiet life in a secluded upstate New York college town. But now her former mentor and onetime lover has arrived. A powerful literary critic who single-handedly destroyed her late husband's promising writing career, he has an exotic young female protege in tow. Her name is Antonia Lively, and her debut novel has made her a darling of the publishing world.

Antonia likes to take real-life crimes and mysteries and turn them into fodder for fiction, with little concern about the lives she affects. Unbeknownst to Catherine, the rising star has targeted her for subject matter for the next book - and the fallout could be deadly.

This "fast-paced page-turner" (The Denver Post) is filled with mystery and psychological suspense, and asks the provocative question: What does stealing another's life do to your soul?

"A sleepy town, charming on the surface, conceals a nest of vipers . . . Sharpened by plot swerves and an undercurrent of violence, this intelligent psychological thriller exudes the aplomb associated with Patricia Highsmith." - Interview Magazine

"It hooked me from the start." - Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story
