  • A beautifully written domestic noir full of secrets and lies that felt utterly plausible yet suspenseful and chilling. Perfectly paced, with a clever, tense plot that makes you question your own moral code. I was gripped from the very first page

    Claire Douglas, author of LOCAL GIRL MISSING and THE SISTERS
  • Everything but the Truth is a cracker of a debut, all the more gripping because it could happen to any of us. Rachel and Jack and Wally were completely real to me from the very first page; I HAD to know what was coming next. Tense, thrilling and compelling - this is a book to devour

  • Incredible! I read it all in one sweaty-palmed sitting. A morally complex mystery bound up in the everyday of our ordinary lives - it's impossible to read this book and not ask yourself, how far would I go for love?

    Harriet Reuter Hapgood, author of THE SQUARE ROOT OF SUMMER
  • Everything But the Truth is startlingly good. Claustrophobic, suspense-layered and devillishy twisty, it grabs your attention from the very first page. What makes Gilly McAllister's debut rise above other psychological thrillers is a lead character you can't help but root for - even though you suspect you shouldn't. Wise, scary and terrifyingly real, this marks Gillian McAllister as a new star in psychological thrillers

    Miranda Dickinson, Sunday Times bestselling author
  • Everything But The Truth is a thunderous debut. An utterly unique story with a deep heartbeat and expertly crafted moral dilemmas. I read it in just two days, my heart in my mouth the whole time

    Holly Seddon, author of TRY NOT TO BREATHE
  • Addictive - I found myself wanting to pick it up at every opportunity. Rachel manages the delicate balance between believable and likeable and you find yourself praying things work out for her. This is a brilliant debut
