PRAISE FOR THE NOVELS OF CHARLIE DONLEA

DON'T BELIEVE IT

"A perfectly executed and entirely satisfying read,
Don't Believe It is a gripping thriller that will blow readers away, from the first page right up to the very last words. Charlie Donlea's best book yet!"
-Mary Kubica,
New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl and Every Last Lie

"Donlea's framing of the story as documentary proves an effective device, and his work reads like the best nonfiction: clear, crisp and fast-moving."
-Booklist

"It's easy to get hooked on the book's heady cocktail of highly rated television and high-stakes subterfuge...a highly topical thriller." -Forward Reviews, 5 stars

"[I]mmediately compelling. Don't Believe It isn't your average police or detective procedural. [I]t focuses on the creation of a true crime documentary series...a lot of the appeal is of the verisimilitude that Donlea manages to pull off." -RT Book Reviews

"Fast-paced, gripping and addictive, this one will feed your true crime obsession and then some." -POPSUGAR Australia

"[N]ew York producer Sidney Ryan, the heroine of this riveting.novel from Donlea, is producing a documentary TV series. Donlea splices Sidney's investigation with excerpted scenes from the documentary and jury room, creating a fast-paced narration. A risky late plot twist will frustrate some readers while thrilling others." -Publishers Weekly

"This novel is a pager-turner, and this accolade carries to the very last page and the very last line of the story." -New York Journal of Books

"[A] timely thriller that builds into a shocking conclusion. Don't Believe It is sure to appeal to fans of true crime docu-dramas, along with readers of Mary Kubica or Shari Lapena." -Library Journal


THE GIRL WHO WAS TAKEN

"A fast-moving page-turner. . . . Donlea skillfully maximizes suspense by juggling narrators and time all the way to the shocking final twists."
-Publishers Weekly

"Well worth the read."
-Booklist

SUMMIT LAKE

"A gem of a mystery, fast?paced and suspenseful."
-Catherine Coulter, #1
New York Times bestselling author

"An exciting debut, with all the right touches, captivating from the first page to the last. There's a bright future ahead for this newcomer to the thriller genre-definitely a talent to watch."
-Steve Berry,
New York Times bestselling author

"Donlea keeps readers guessing throughout. The whodunit plot is clever and compelling . . . for fans of nonstop mysteries with a twist."
-
Library Journal"
