Don't be left in the dark.

In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura witnesses a brutal attack. She and her boyfriend Kit call the police, and in that moment, four lives change forever.

A tour de force - a gripping, twisting, furiously clever read that asks all the right questions and keeps you guessing until the very end. I loved it. — Ruth Ware, author of The Woman in Cabin 10
Erin Kelly has written several good psychological thrillers, but in He Said / She Said she ascends to a new plane of ingenuity. Her ability to switch between the sordid reality of crime and juicy melodrama, the story anchored within the realm of plausibility by the care with which she brings her characters and settings to life, reminded me of Ruth Rendell at her best. — Telegraph
I'm calling it: THIS is the book I wish I'd written — Clare Mackintosh, author of I See You
Kelly is a master at drip-feeding us the details, keeping us guessing about the truth, and the many shades of grey it contains, right until the end. — Observer
It's SO good...I was carrying it around the house I was so gripped — Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent
A clever, compulsive read, which sinks its claws into you and won't let go — Red magazine
Deliciously tense and twisty. — Sharon Bolton, author of Daisy in Chains
There's so much to love here - seamless plotting, descriptive prose, characters so real they pull you in to their tangled lives - and then an absolute humdinger of a twist that will take your breath away. — Sunday Mirror
Not just a tense psychological drama but a meditation on the complex view. Kelly brilliantly uses the eclipse as metaphor, exploring the fact that though we long for black and white, the partial view is all we ever get. Dive in. — Susie Steiner, author of Missing, Presumed
A taut, cleverly constructed novel about what we see, know and understand - and how they are not always the same thing. Prepare to step into the darkness... — Linda Green, author of While My Eyes Were Closed
A tour de force - a gripping, twisting, furiously clever read that asks all the right questions and keeps you guessing until the very end. I loved it.

Kelly is a beautiful writer who can conjure an atmosphere with exceptional skill...a fantastic psychological thriller replete with mystery and misdirection
Twisted, atmospheric and perfectly plotted. Her best yet.
A superbly dark and complex psychological thriller from a really exceptional author. Kelly' s beautiful and atmospheric writing pulls you in from the first page. I read right into the night.
It's magnificent. Stunningly twisty plot and weep-makingly brilliant writing
I devoured it...weaves such a delicate line between everyone's version of the truth, it was impossible to stop reading.
Deeply immersive... an ingeniously constructed and thrilling novel about the many different forms of betrayal
Multi-layered and stylish, with characters you feel you know, dilemmas you can imagine grappling with, and a hurtling plot that's unpatronising and clever to the last page. My admiration for Erin Kelly has just gone up another notch.
Erin Kelly speaks the language of tension fluently. HE SAID/SHE SAID will make you question everything you know and suspect everyone you think you can trust. My first response was to read it all over again, to see where the traps were set.

Fantastic... a real tour de force, with characters I won't forget any time soon
Kelly proves herself (once again) a mistress of the dark arts of psychological thriller writing with sinuous storytelling that beguiles and entraps the reader. Lingers in the mind long after the final page. Set to be the psych thriller of 2017
A masterclass in drip-fed suspense, beautifully written and astutely observed. This book left me extremely tense throughout - in a good way!
HE SAID/SHE SAID tantalisingly exposes the lives of beautifully drawn characters, holding them under a magnifying glass as the consequences of one terrifying moment during an eclipse ripple out over the years. With all the anticipation and tension of an actual eclipse - mysterious, breathtaking, powerful - Erin Kelly captures the essence of the 'unputdownable novel' by combining fear, breathtaking twists and turns, as well as her trademark bewitching prose.
An addictive read. The mystery and majesty of the total solar eclipses lends an eerie inevitability to the doomed and twisted attempts of Erin Kelly's all-too-human characters to control their lives.

A dark, incredibly atmospheric psychological thriller with a clever, elaborate plot that sucks you in step by step. An unpredictable yet always plausible story about the far-reaching consequences of actions and even lies. A gripping page-turner
Brilliant. A masterclass in how to write a gripping psychological thriller.
Love and its twisted opposite, truth and lies that shade from little white to pitch-dark. Here be images to haunt you and characters to make you doubt your own judgement.
Thought-provoking and sensitively handled
From the very first sentence, HE SAID/SHE SAID casts a shadow - how to undo what is done. The ending is as inevitable as it is dark; it swept me away and I enjoyed every minute of it.
