Product description

Review

Do you ever check your partner's phone?
Should you?
Are you prepared for the consequences?

Everything but the Truth is Gillian McAllister's stunning breakthrough thriller about deceit, betrayal and one woman's compulsive need to uncover the truth

(from the publisher's description)

Written with authority and insight, this book delivers a top domestic noir and creates two brilliantly intricate characters and a host of fascinating moral conundrums (The Sun)

Wonderful writing and a brilliant story. An amazing debut (B.A. Paris, bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors)

Perfection. Intriguing and compelling. An exceptional debut (Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO)

A beautifully written domestic noir full of secrets and lies that felt utterly plausible yet suspenseful and chilling. Perfectly paced, with a clever, tense plot that makes you question your own moral code. I was gripped from the very first page (Claire Douglas, author of LOCAL GIRL MISSING and THE SISTERS)

Everything but the Truth is a cracker of a debut, all the more gripping because it could happen to any of us. Rachel and Jack and Wally were completely real to me from the very first page; I HAD to know what was coming next. Tense, thrilling and compelling - this is a book to devour (Elizabeth Haynes)

Incredible! I read it all in one sweaty-palmed sitting. A morally complex mystery bound up in the everyday of our ordinary lives - it's impossible to read this book and not ask yourself, how far would I go for love? (Harriet Reuter Hapgood, author of THE SQUARE ROOT OF SUMMER)

Everything But the Truth is startlingly good. Claustrophobic, suspense-layered and devillishy twisty, it grabs your attention from the very first page. What makes Gilly McAllister's debut rise above other psychological thrillers is a lead character you can't help but root for - even though you suspect you shouldn't. Wise, scary and terrifyingly real, this marks Gillian McAllister as a new star in psychological thrillers (Miranda Dickinson, Sunday Times bestselling author)

Everything But The Truth is a thunderous debut. An utterly unique story with a deep heartbeat and expertly crafted moral dilemmas. I read it in just two days, my heart in my mouth the whole time (Holly Seddon, author of TRY NOT TO BREATHE)

Addictive - I found myself wanting to pick it up at every opportunity. Rachel manages the delicate balance between believable and likeable and you find yourself praying things work out for her. This is a brilliant debut (Jenny Blackhurst, author of HOW I LOST YOU)

Once I'd started I was of course powerless to stop. Everything But the Truth is a dream début, brilliantly executed, clever and utterly realistic. I loved it (Jill Mansell, Sunday Times bestselling author)

Intriguing and atmospheric (Sheila O’Flanagan, Sunday Times bestselling author)

Gillian's writing is beautiful. She weaves so much into every paragraph, revealing things slowly, as if pulling back a heavy curtain (Cressida McLaughlin)

Tense and compelling. Everything But The Truth is an assured, clever, page-turning book. A great debut (Paula Daly, bestselling author of The Mistake I Made)

A gripping, compelling page turner that kept me up half the night (Liz Nugent, bestselling author of R&J book club pick Lying in Wait)

McAllister delivers a fascinating, complex and fast paced read about love, lies and acceptance. You won't be able to put it down! (Hollie Overton, author of Richard and Judy Book Club pick Baby Doll)

A disquieting exploration of how events in the past take on a whole new perspective when parenthood looms. An assured and gripping debut (Alex Marwood, bestselling author of The Darkest Secret)

A fast-paced page turner with an emotional punch that sets it apart from so many other psychological thrillers (Mark Edwards, author of The Devil's Work)

Breathlessly brilliant. A Must! (Heat)

Gillian's gripping debut novel is packed with twists and turns that will make it almost impossible to put the book down (Hello)

Everything But The Truth is an assured, suspenseful debut (Good Housekeeping)

One lie kicks off this suspenseful domestic noir (Woman & Home)

Toxic relationships, secrets and lies - this is a tense morality tale (Glamour)

What would you do if you thought your partner was hiding something? Rachel thinks her boyfriend Jack is and, after delving into his past, discovers he may not be who he says he is. A thrilling book-club read, as it will have you debating moral dilemmas (Prima)

This smart, twisty and ingenious debut follows pregnant Rachel as she tracks the trail of deceit left by her boyfriend, Jack. As emotionally engaging as it is taut, this is drama at its best (Heat)

How well can you really know someone? That's the question posed by this superb debut...With engaging characters, and a cleverly crafted message about morality and forgiveness at its core, this contemporary love story wrapped up in a thriller is a brilliant read. Compelling and intense (The Sunday Mirror)

Prepare to be gripped by this tense thriller (Fabulous Magazine)

Completely plausible, perfectly paced plot, create moments of heart-in-mouth suspense (Sunday People)

From the Back Cover

'A beautifully written domestic noir full of secrets and lies' Claire Douglas, bestselling author of Local Girl Missing'Tense and compelling' Paula Daly, bestselling author of The Mistake I Made

'An utterly unique story with a deep heartbeat and expertly crafted moral dilemmas' Holly Seddon, author of Try Not To Breath

It all started with the email.
Rachel didn't even mean to look. She loves Jack and she's pregnant with their child. She trusts him.
But now she's seen it, she can't undo that moment. Or the chain of events it has set in motion.
Why has Jack been lying about his past? Just what exactly is he hiding? And doesn't Rachel have a right to know the truth at any cost?

'A gripping, compelling page turner that kept me up half the night' Liz Nugent, bestselling author of Lying in Wait

'You won't be able to put it down!' Hollie Overton, bestselling author of Baby Doll

After getting pregnant by her boyfriend who she's only known a short while, Rachel jumps instantly and immediately into a serious relationship with him. But there are things he doesn't know about her. And things she doesn't know about him. After seeing an email that he lies to her about, she starts delving more and more into his past.
This book is eloquently written and the characters are vividly developed. The issues are dealt with in a great way and I found myself turning the pages faster and faster to find out the end.

This.Is.Not.A.Thriller! I repeat This.Is.Not.A.Thriller. Its about an unlikable woman who is in a relationship and will not be happy until she has put everything about his life under a microscope. Makes me wonder how many non thrillers Amazon has put under this headline. More disappointed with Amazon for wasting my time.

The book starts out really well but it seems to go round in circles, covering the same ground over and over again. Not really a psychological thriller, more an examination of a relationship with extreme trust issues.

A perfectly crafted debut novel! I found this hidden gem lurking on my kindle and was hooked from the start. A book that makes you wonder what would you do in the same situation? I'm a teeny tiny bit of a social media addict so can appreciate how Rachel reacted upon "accidentally" opening an email of her partner which hinted he wasn't who he said he was.

I would class this novel as more of a domestic noir than a thriller.

I was really invested in Rachel and Jack as a couple so was willing them to have a happy ending.

This book has been on my to-read list for a while, and I finally got a free weekend to read it. I'm seriously impressed! The quality of the writing kept me turning the pages. I really cared about the characters - all of them, and found the book very thought-provoking, and moving. Looking forward to more from this very talented writer.

Couldn't really get into this one and did a lot of skim reading.
