SUCCESSFUL HARDCOVER that sold more than 14,000 copies across formats in its first two months on sale and earned rave reviews from The New York Times Book Review, Good Housekeeping, Entertainment Weekly, and others.
AN ADDICTIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE NOVEL featuring a female protagonist racing to uncover the truth behind a gruesome crime, Berry’s second novel is as chilling, dark, and compulsively readable as her first.
CROSSOVER APPEAL: Like Tana French, Berry’s transporting, original prose, deftly drawn characters, and dark imagination set her apart from the pack. She is, in the words of Claire Messud, “a deeply interesting writer,” whose work appeals to both literary and commercial readers.
INSPIRED BY A REAL CASE: The novel was inspired by the case of Lord Lucan, a British earl who disappeared in 1974 after allegedly killing his children’s nanny and attacking his wife. He was never found. Berry imagines how a grown daughter might reckon with her father’s legacy of violence in this haunting, unputdownable novel.
Praise for A Double Life:
“Berry writes thrillingly about women raging against a world that protects cruel and careless men…. [Her] writing is rich and moody, without any necessary fuss…. The ending is as shocking as it is satisfying.”—The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice)
“[A] page-turner.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Thrilling.”—Laura Lippman, O Magazine
