After She Wrote Him (Paperback)



"Pure delight, a swift yet psychologically complex read." —Dean Koontz

"It's truly unusual, unique, and every thriller lover should make the time to read this." —Suspense Magazine

It's an author's job to create a new world in the pages of a book. But when lines start to blur and reality begins to fade, getting lost in a story can be dangerous—especially if you can't find your way back.

Madeleine d'Leon doesn't know where Edward came from. He is simply a character in her next book. But as she writes, he becomes all she can think about. His charm, his dark hair, his pen scratching out his latest literary novel...

Edward McGinnity can't get Madeleine out of his mind—softly smiling, infectiously enthusiastic, and perfectly damaged. She will be the ideal heroine for his next book.

But who is the author and who is the creation? And as the lines start to blur, who is affected when a killer finally takes flesh?

After She Wrote Him by Sulari Gentill, USA Today bestselling author of The Woman in the Library is wildly inventive twist on the murder mystery, a book-within-a book consumed with passion, obsession, and the emptiness left behind when the "real world" starts to fall away.

(Previously published as Crossing the Lines)

After setting out to study astrophysics, graduating in law and then abandoning her legal career to write books, SULARI GENTILL now grows French black truffles on her farm in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains of Australia.

Her tenth Sinclair novel, A Testament of Character, was shortlisted for the Ned Kelly Best Crime Novel in 2021.
