Erin Kelly’s first novel, The Poison Tree, was a Richard and Judy bestseller and a major ITV drama starring Myanna Buring, Ophelia Lovibond and Matthew Goode. She has written four more original psychological thrillers – The Sick Rose, The Burning Air, The Ties That Bind and her latest, He Said/She Said, about a young couple who witness a rape and, after the trial, begin to wonder if they believed the right person.
Before she wrote fiction, she was a journalist, a barmaid, a receptionist, a special needs classroom assistant, a pub signwriter, the world’s worst telemarketer, a nightclub cleaner and a shop assistant. These days, She still works as a freelance journalist and also teaches creative writing for Curtis Brown Creative and the Guardian Masterclasses.
He Said/She Said
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.
Fifteen years on, Laura and Kit live in fear.
And while Laura knows she was right to speak out, she also knows that you can never see the whole picture: something is always hidden . . . something she never could have guessed.
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.
