  • Intense, unpredictable and completely addictive - One White Lie is everything a great psychological thriller should be

    TM Logan, bestselling author of The Holiday
  • Reads like the best Hitchcock film never made... Konen keeps the earth shifting beneath you as she expertly cranks up the suspense with a cast of characters as quietly slippery as they are intriguing and then, once she's you're on the edge of your seat with tension and unease, the twists keep on coming right up to the final page. I read it in one sitting. An assured and astonishing debut from an author destined to become a big name in thriller fiction

  • One White Lie hooked me from the start. This book has everything-engaging characters, a unique story, and an ending that will blow you away

    Samantha Downing, bestselling author of My Lovely Wife
  • Remarkably insidious. Puts a sick smile on your face. Extremely readable

    Caroline Kepnes, bestselling author of You
  • It's rare that a novel keeps me guessing until the very last page-but One White Lie delivers in a big way. If you crave an escape from the real world, this is the book for you. It's absolutely terrific

    Sarah Pekkanen, bestselling co-author of The Wife Between Us
  • One White Lie is compulsively readable. A gripping page-turner. The tension builds with every page. Each shocking twist is followed by an even more shocking twist. This is one of those books you'll want to read again the moment you finish. A masterful psychological thriller that will leave you breathless

    Lisa Regan, bestselling author of Vanishing Girls
  • I love Konen's writing style - One White Lie is super pacy and whizzes you along - before you know it, the minutes have turned into hours! I couldn't put it down until I knew how it ended

    Sandie Jones, bestselling author of The Other Woman
  • This fast-paced but nuanced thrill ride grabbed me on the first page and didn't let go. With spare, haunting prose, a tense and richly wrought setting, intricate plotting, and twists that would make Hitchcock himself gasp, One White Lie is a masterful debut. Thriller fans, meet your new favourite author

    Andrea Bartz, author of The Lost Night
  • Leah Konen hits it out of the park with her debut suspense, One White Lie, in which a faked death goes horribly awry. Konen delivers with Lucy, who escapes to rustic Woodstock for a fresh start, only to discover her new neighbours are harbouring disturbing secrets of their own. A sly, up-all-night thriller that ends with a surprising bang

    Kimberly Belle, internationally bestselling author of Dear Wife
  • Believable twists imbue the narrative's urgency as each character's secrets are spilled and as Lucy's past catches up with her. Lucy's credible fears about Davis elicit empathy. Konen should win a new set of fans with this domestic thriller.
