From first-time novelist Sandra Block, a gripping pause-resister about a psychiatrist determined to discover the truth about her past.
She helps people conquer their demons. But she has a few of her own...
In the halls of the psychiatric ward, Dr. Zoe Goldman is a resident in training, dedicated to helping troubled patients. However she has plenty of baggage of her own. When her newest patient arrives--a beautiful sociopath who murdered her mother--Zoe becomes obsessed with questions about her own mother's death. But the truth remains tauntingly out of reach, locked away within her nightmares of an uncontrollable fire. And as her adoptive mother loses her memory to dementia, the time to find the answers is running out.
As Zoe digs deeper, she realizes the danger is not just in her dreams but is now close at hand. And she has no choice but to face what terrifies her the most. Because what she can't remember just might kill her.
Little Black Lies is about madness and memory--and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
