THE BRAND-NEW THRILLER FROM THE RICHARD & JUDY PICK AUTHOR AND SIX-MILLION-COPY BESTSELLER, THE MIND THAT CREATED ITV’S THE SUSPECT


‘One of his best, suspenseful and hard to put down’ STEPHEN KING
‘Compulsively readable . . . A nail-biter’ LINWOOD BARCLAY
‘I’ve never read a Michael Robotham novel I didn’t love’ VAL MCDERMID

Twenty years ago, Cyrus Haven’s brother killed their parents and twin sisters.

Since then Cyrus has devoted his life as a forensic psychologist to understanding why people commit terrible crimes.

Now Elias is being released from his psychiatric hospital, and Cyrus must decide if he’s ready to trust the man who destroyed his childhood.

His friend Evie Cormac, who has a gift for knowing when people are lying, isn’t so sure.

And as they seek the truth behind a double abduction case, past and present collide – with devastating consequences . . .

If you love Lying Beside You, don’t miss Cyrus and Evie in Good Girl, Bad Girl, When She Was Good, or Michael’s brand-new book Storm Child.
