"The skilfully-plotted narrative clips along at a fast pace, with as many twists and turns as the Monte Carlo Grand Prix....Reader, beware, you will be turning pages into the wee hours."
Doris Baker
"The pace is literally murderous. Especially taut thriller with many unexpected plot twists. And how Patchell brings the two major story lines together is ingenious and unexpected."
Amazon Reviewer
"Well-crafted characters combine with a complex, riveting plot to create a mystery-thriller with a distinctly human voice."
IndieReader Reviews
"Deadly Lies is a taut, fast-paced thriller that grabs you from the start and doesn't let go."

Hurt Jill Shannon once, shame on you. Hurt Jill Shannon twice, she'll bury you six feet under.

After running fast and far from her painful childhood, Jill Shannon has made it. She has a successful career and is married to Detective Alex Shannon. Together they live out what seems to be a perfect life in Seattle.

The vow she made as a teenager to never again be a victim lies dormant—until one day a reporter lures her to his hotel room under the pretense of an interview—and suddenly it all comes rushing back.

>>>After Revenge, a Web of Lies

Jill seeks revenge on the reporter, triggering a series of events that leads Jill down a wormhole of retribution, forcing her to spin an ever-widening web of lies.

Meanwhile, Alex is on the case of a series of murders that began as cyber relationships. There seems to be a familiar fingerprint on these crimes, but Alex refuses to believe that the murderer could be so close to him.

>>For those who couldn't put down The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo comes a thrilling ride a la Mr. and Mrs. Smith, where husband and wife stand on opposite sides of a divide created by lies and rooted in a dark and deadly past.

Behind the book

This book won an IndieReader award for best fiction in 2015.

It was the very first book I wrote and published and features a female anti-hero that I just love. What I'd say about Jill Shannon is that not all girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. And while Jill's not exactly likeable, she's a complex and interesting character. I don't think there's a single review of this book that doesn't mention the ending. :-)
