From the USA TODAY bestselling author of The Night Olivia Fell—an “emotionally charged mystery” (Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author)—comes a thrilling new suspense novel about the insidious nature of family secrets…and their deadly potential.
If you can’t remember it, how do you prove you didn’t do it?
If you can’t remember it
Eva Hansen wakes in the hospital after being struck by lightning and discovers her mother, Kat, has been murdered.
Eva was found unconscious down the street, but she can’t remember what happened. And then she learns the police are suspicious of her.
How do you prove you didn’t do it?
Determined to clear her name, Eva heads from Seattle to London—Kat’s former home—for answers. But as she unravels her mother’s carefully held secrets, Eva soon realizes that someone doesn’t want her to know the truth. And with violent memories beginning to emerge, Eva doesn’t know who to trust. Least of all herself.
Told in alternating perspectives from Eva’s search for answers and Kat’s mysterious past, Christina McDonald has crafted another “complex, emotionally intense” (Publishers Weekly) domestic thriller. Behind Every Lie explores the complicated nature of mother-daughter relationships, family trauma, and the danger behind long-held secrets.
About the Author
Christina McDonald is the USA Today bestselling author of The Night Olivia Fell (Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books), which has been optioned for television by a major Hollywood studio. Her next book, Behind Every Lie, is out Feb 2020.
Her writing has been featured in The Sunday Times, Dublin, USAToday.com, and Expedia. Originally from Seattle, WA, she has an MA in Journalism from the National University of Ireland Galway, and now lives in London, England with her husband, two sons, and their dog, Tango.
Christina enjoys reading, hiking and lifting weights at the gym. She always wanted to be a writer, and told her earliest stories to her two younger sisters, who were her first audience, cheerleaders and sounding board. She has a BA in Communications from the University of Washington, Seattle and an MA in Journalism from the National University of Ireland, Galway.
Going to college in Ireland wasn’t part of the master plan, but happened randomly when Christina went travelling and arrived completely jet lagged at Heathrow Airport in London, caught sight of the Aer Lingus desk, and spontaneously bought a ticket to Ireland. She loved it so much she went back the following year to study.
She is currently writing her third novel.

A Letter From the Editor
What would you do if you woke up in the hospital with no memory of how you got there, accused of murdering y our own mother? This is the nightmare that Eva Hansen awakens to in Christina's McDonald's compulsive second novel, Behind Every Lie. A domestic thriller with a mystery at its heart, Behind Every Lie explores how some secrets refuse to stay hidden . . . despite how hard one might try to buy them.
Christina McDonald is a master of complicated mother-daughter stories. As she slips between past and present, taking the reader through Eva's search for the truth and the events leading up to her mother Kat's murder, she sets off a read that is as explosive as lightning. With the family drama of Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies and the thriller twist of Megan Abbott's You Will Know Me, Behind Every Lie is a gripping page-turner that only becomes more tension-filled the further you read . . . and will have you questioning your own definition of the truth.
My very best,
Senior Editor, Gallery Books
