“Wonderfully plausible, hypnotically compelling, and deliciously chilling and creepy – some of the best psychological suspense you’ll read this year.”

-Lee Child #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels

“THE LAST MRS. PARRISH is an addictive and twisty debut.”

–Karin Slaughter New York Times and international bestseller

“A wonderfully clever story, filled with suspense, that kept me turning the pages and sitting back in shock at the clever twist.”

-Jane Green author of 17 New York Times bestsellers

“To the pantheon of Gone Girl-type bad girls you can now add Amber Patterson, the heroine of this devilishly ingenious debut thriller. . . The reader watches with shock and delight as Amber cold-bloodedly manipulates Daphne and Jackson and lays waste to anyone else who stands in her way. . . . To say any more would spoil all the twists that Constantine (the pseudonym of sisters Lynne and Valerie Constantine) has in store along the way to a surprising and entirely satisfying ending. Suffice it to say that readers would have to go back to the likes of Ira Levin’s A Kiss Before Dying or Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr. Ripley to find as entertaining a depiction of a sociopathic monster.”

-Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“With a plot equally as twisty, spellbinding, and addictive as Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl or Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train, this is sure to be a hit with suspense fans.”

-Library Journal (Starred Review)

“…these ladies definitely know the formula. A Gone Girl–esque confection with villainy and melodrama galore.”

-Kirkus (Starred Review)

“The twists keep coming in this psychological roller coaster from debut author Constantine, the pen name of sisters Lynne and Valerie Constantine. … this is a satisfying thriller that offers a window into the darker side of glamorous lives and powerful men.”


“THE LAST MRS. PARRISH is a beautifully constructed set piece, an intricate narrative that doubles back and folds in on itself like a Mobius strip, revealing secret upon secret, and layer upon layer, with a seductive ‘just one more chapter’ urgency that will keep readers up all night. Giving new meaning to the adage ‘be careful what you wish for,’ THE LAST MRS. PARRISH proves that the worst that can happen just might be when you get what you want. Addictive!”

—Karen Dionne, author of The Marsh Kings Daughter

“Gillian Flynn meets Joy Fielding in Liv Constantine’s The Last Mrs. Parrish. In an age of great antiheroines comes the most unlikeable one yet, the coldly devilish Amber Patterson. This thriller delivers the most satisfying endings since B.A Parir’s smash hit Behind Closed Doors—and a victorious romp of revenge.”

—Jenny Milchman, USA Today Bestselling author of Cover of Snow, Ruin Falls, and As Night Falls

“THE LAST MRS. PARRISH is an extraordinary debut and gripping psychological thriller that is full of unexpected twists. Readers will become obsessed with these chilling characters who pull you in and refuse to let go.”

—Sara Blaedel, Denmark’s award-winning internationally bestselling “Queen of Crime”
