Overview

In Compton�s "taut, tense, cautionary tale" (Kirkus, starred review) TELL NO LIES, a volatile attraction forces a successful family man to confront the limits of trust and the pitfalls of desire.

Idealistic St. Louis prosecutor Jack Hilliard appears to have it all: intelligence, good looks, a great job, and a solid marriage with his wife, Claire. But he finds himself at a crossroads when, on the same night his boss announces his resignation as DA, his simmering flirtation with his mysterious lawyer friend Jenny bubbles to the surface.

Jack soon learns how easy it is to compromise his values and comfortable life for ambition and desire. Despite Claire's counsel to stand by his beliefs, Jack misrepresents his position on the death penalty to secure the top spot at the District Attorney's office. As the pressures of the campaign mount, he struggles to deny his growing obsession with Jenny, who supports his ambitions at whatever cost. When Jenny becomes the main suspect in a shocking murder, and Jack is the only one who can prove her innocence, he faces an excruciating choice: save Jenny by speaking out, or save his marriage and career by remaining silent.

Part Scott Turow, part Jodi Picoult, TELL NO LIES is a heated and suspenseful tale ripped from the headlines�about a conflicted man simultaneously seduced by a dream job and a tempting woman, about the relationships we forge and those we destroy, despite our good intentions.
