A taut, breakout psychological thriller with a wicked twist.

Matty Melgren is a convicted serial killer serving life without parole for the murders of several women in London in the 1980s. He has consistently protested his innocence, and the evidence against him was largely circumstantial. At the time of his arrest, Matty’s girlfriend was Amelia-Rose, a single mother to 12-year-old Sophie. Sophie adores Matty. He’s handsome, funny, respectable—she could never suspect him of the brutal killings in the headlines.

Then a police sketch of a suspect is released that looks a lot like Matty. Was it him? Sophie is consumed with doubt and guilt, causing her to act impulsively, ripping her family apart. Years later, she is still haunted by her actions. Was she wrong to have done what she did all those years ago? Then Sophie receives a letter from Matty—he’s dying and asks her to visit him in prison. Will she finally get the answers she needs to be able to reclaim her future?

Already a bestseller in the UK, this twisty, true crime-inspired mystery thriller is perfect for fans of page-turning crime books like The Last Thing He Told Me or Before I Go to Sleep, or readers of serial killer books about Ted Bundy and other infamous murderers.

Review for Truly, Darkly, Deeply

I loved the layout of the book. It’s told from the stepdaughter’s POV (of a convicted serial killer). It starts with the outcome – Matt is in jail – obviously he’s guilty, right? Maybe. 

Then it goes back twenty years to walk us through the story from the beginning. Effective. Very effective. The genius part is that the stepdaughter’s voice also goes back 20 years – so the story is being told by a child. 

The author’s research paid off big time, making the true crime inspired story flow. Of course, there are twists, a few that blindsided me. With transparency, it did slow down after Matt was convicted, sometimes a little too much. There were times I wanted to throttle the mom. Overall, it was a great story and I’m grateful to have been on the tour!
