TWO MISSING WOMEN. ONE WITNESS. SO MANY LIES . . . The brand-new thriller by the number-one bestselling and award-winning master of crime
Twenty years ago, Cyrus Haven's family was murdered. Only he and his brother survived. Cyrus because he hid. Elias because he was the killer.
Now Elias is being released from a secure psychiatric hospital and Cyrus, a forensic psychologist, must decide if he can forgive the man who destroyed his childhood.
As he prepares for the homecoming, Cyrus is called to a crime scene in Nottingham. A man is dead and his daughter Maya is missing. Then a second woman is abducted . . . The only witness is Evie Cormac, a troubled teenager with an incredible gift: she can tell when you are lying.
Both missing women have dark secrets that Cyrus must unravel to find them - and he and Evie know better than anybody how the past can come back to haunt you . . .
This breathtaking new thriller from the #1 bestselling author will keep you guessing until the very end.

I have loved every book by Michael Robotham and Lying Beside You was everything I’ve come to expect, and more. The characters are so real it’s almost personal seeing their relationships develop. The “edge of your seat” plot that makes his books un-put-downable, the unfolding of events and the no-nonsense writing combine to make this book thrilling. I felt sad when it was over but as they say, all good things must come to an end. Highly recommended!
Be sure to read his earlier novel which introduces the main characters in this sequel. If you enjoy mystery and crime, this author is for you.
