"From the acclaimed author of the "ripping good" (The New York Times) debut novel Three Graves Full comes a new thriller about a woman who digs into her unconventional past to confirm what she suspects: her husband wants her dead. Dee Aldrich rebelled against her off-center upbringing when she married the most conventional man she could imagine: Patrick, her college sweetheart. But now, years later, her marriage is falling apart and she's starting to believe that her husband wants her gone...for good. Haunted by memories of her late mother Annette, a former covert operations asset, Dee reaches back into her childhood to resurrect the lessons and "spy games" in which she learned memory tricks and, most importantly, how and when to lie. But just as she begins delving into her past to determine the course of the future, she makes a discovery that will change her life: the money that her mother left behind. Now, Dee must investigate her suspicions before it's too late and untangle conspiracy from coincidence, using her mother's advice to steer her through the blind spots. The trick, in the end, will be in discovering if a "normal life" is really what she wanted at all. With pulse-pounding prose and atmospheric settings, Monday's Lie is a thriller that delivers more of the "Hitchcockian menace" (Peter Straub) that made Three Graves Full a critical hit. For fans of the Coen brothers or Alexander McCall Smith, this is a book you won't want to miss"--

Couldn't really tell whether book was about espionage or a marriage that was imploding. It was difficult to follow.
