"Little Black Lies is a darkly intriguing mystery with a feisty young doctor as its protagonist. Sandra Block pulls you in deep and doesn't let go."--- Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award-winning author
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 that 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.
About the Author
Sandra A. Block graduated from college at Harvard, then returned to her native land of Buffalo, New York for medical training and never left. She is a practicing neurologist and proud Sabres fan, and lives at home with her husband, two children, and impetuous yellow lab Delilah. She has been published in both medical and poetry journals. LITTLE BLACK LIES (Grand Central Publishing; February 17, 2015) is her first novel.
I have not yet been able to read this title, but I am excited because of the protagonist being a psychiatrist with ADHD who is searching into her dark family history. I hope I have some time to sit down with this book after it comes out because I think it promises to be both a complex and a rewarding read.
