More about Body of Lies…

DS Gemma Woodstock returns to Smithson in a mysterious new thriller from the bestselling author of The Housemate.

A car crash victim clings to life and is rushed to hospital but can’t be saved. Hours later, her corpse is stolen from the morgue. No one knows who the dead woman was or why her body was taken.

Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock is back in her hometown of Smithson on maternity leave when the bizarre incident occurs. She is intrigued by the case but reluctant to get involved, despite the urging of her journalist friend Candy Fyfe. But in the days after the body goes missing, the town is rocked by another shocking crime and Gemma can’t resist joining the investigation.

Candy and Gemma follow the clues the dead woman left behind. As they attempt to discover the identity of the missing woman, Gemma uncovers devastating secrets about the people she thought she knew best. The closer Gemma gets to the truth, the more danger she is in. She desperately needs to confide in someone—but is there anyone she can trust?

A gripping, white-knuckle thriller from the bestselling author of The Dark Lake and The Housemate.

‘Sarah Bailey just gets better and better. Body of Lies is nuanced, compelling and so very entertaining.’
Chris Hammer, author of Scrublands and The Seven‘Bailey blasts through more twists in the first fifty pages of Body of Lies than some writers manage in a whole book.’
Jack Heath, author of Kill Your Brother‘With Body of Lies, Sarah Bailey proves she is the master of the relatable protagonist and the queen of dramatic tension. I defy readers to put down this book once they start.’
Hayley Scrivenor, author of Dirt Town
