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.
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.
See what everyone is saying about this brilliant read:
'It's SO good . . . I was carrying it around the house I was so gripped' Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent
'A gripping, twisting, furiously clever read . . . I loved it' Ruth Ware, author of The Lying Game
'It's magnificent. Stunningly twisty plot and weep-makingly brilliant writing' Marian Keyes, author of The Break
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)
A gripping, dark thriller...A thrilling tale of dangerous obsession, the book explores how far the ramifications of a single event can reach. (Cosmopolitan)
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)
