    "Suspense, intrigue, and isolation converge in this perfect storm of a thriller."―Mindy McGinnis, author of The Female of the Species

    "A white-knuckle, claustrophobic, locked-room tour de force, Two Truths and a Lie is a worthy successor to Agatha Christie."―Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten and #murdertrending

    "Told with nods to Agatha Christie and in eerie detail, this ­thriller is sure to delight fans of mystery, suspense, and a little horror.... A grisly, fast-paced, suspenseful tale of a murder and mystery that is great for fans of noir thrillers who do not mind a little gore." ―School Library Journal

    "Henry returns with another thriller that will keep readers on the edges of their seats with mystery and romance, plus various theater references that give the novel a unique feel. Multiple twists and turns will keep readers guessing until the very end. An engrossing read." ―Booklist

    "Henry successfully incorporates elements of romance into a snowed-inn mystery with Agatha Christie roots." ―Publishers Weekly

    "An homage to Agatha Christie, Henry’s locked-room mystery is tautly plotted, with quick-moving nail-biting chapters, relatable characters, and a deftly wrought setting that paradoxically manages to feel both claustrophobic and sprawling …. An atmospheric and entertaining thriller perfect for snowy night chills."
