Our friend J. T. Ellison returns to the show today to talk all about writing thrillers and what the craziness of 2020 has meant for her creative process. Be sure to check out J. T.’s new book Her Dark Lies.
Jutting from sparkling turquoise waters off the Italian coast, Isle Isola is an idyllic setting for a wedding. In the majestic cliff-top villa owned by the wealthy Compton family, up-and-coming artist Claire Hunter will marry handsome, charming Jack Compton, surrounded by close family, intimate friends…and a host of dark secrets.
From the moment Claire sets foot on the island, something seems amiss. Skeletal remains have just been found. There are other, newer disturbances, too. Menacing texts. A ruined wedding dress. And one troubling shadow hanging over Claire’s otherwise blissful relationship – the strange mystery surrounding Jack’s first wife.
Then a raging storm descends, the power goes out – and the real terror begins….
