"For fans of Liane Moriarty, Liv Constantine and Lisa Jewell, a twisty psychological thriller about a savvy second wife who will do almost anything to come out on top from the New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes"--
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Pinborough's third domestic thriller (after Cross Her Heart, 2018) is set in the enticing world of the ├╝berrich denizens of picturesque Savannah. Marcie became Jason's second wife after a torrid affair, and despite their age difference, has settled in as a member of their old money world of parties, charity work, and gossip but she has a past that will never allow her to truly belong. Their predictable world is upended when William, Jason's partner and the group's de facto patriarch, brings home an even younger wife, Keisha, from his trip to England, shaking loose a web of secrets and putting a plan of well-calculated destruction into motion. Narrated in turns by Keisha and Marcie, who are equally seductive and untrustworthy, this tightly wound thriller just keeps constricting. Readers shouldn't let Pinborough lull them into complacency with soapy drama, illicit love affairs, tension as stifling as the Georgia summer heat, and an unsettling touch of the supernatural. Every character and every detail will matter when the inevitable twist comes crashing down. With Dead to Her, Pinborough plants her flag as the master of seductively sinister suspense. This absorbing tale will satisfy and even surprise fans of Jennifer McMahon and Gillian Flynn.--Becky Spratford Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This soapy domestic suspense novel from Pinborough (Cross Her Heart) roils with passion, rancor, and greed wrapped in Southern politesse. As the second wife of Savannah, Ga., attorney Jason Maddox, 34-year-old Marcie is the youngest, most attractive woman in the couple's wealthy social circle--until Jason's widowed boss, William Radford, returns from London with a gorgeous bride, 22-year-old Keisha, a former cocktail waitress. Marcie loathes the way her husband ogles Keisha, but agrees to befriend the young woman--ostensibly to manipulate Keisha into encouraging William's retirement, thus rendering Jason senior partner, but also to monitor her competition. The relationship between Marcie and Keisha takes an unexpected turn as their respective stories unfold via an alternating third-person narrative. Tension increases in tandem with Marcie's suspicion and paranoia; meanwhile, Keisha's sanity shreds as William's domineering nature emerges. Pinbrough's intricately woven mystery will please fans of B.A. Paris and Paula Hawkins. Agent: Grainne Fox, Fletcher & Co. (Feb.)"
