Product description


Praise for Strangers We Know

“…the increasingly tense plot takes turns the reader won’t see coming. Marr is a writer to watch.” Publishers Weekly

“Elle Marr is an author to know. Just when you think you understand the motives behind her characters and the way their story lines are being presented—bam!—Elle will hit you with twists you won’t see coming. Told from multiple points of view, Strangers We Know is about more than Ivy learning of her past and, shockingly, the serial killer within her family; it’s also about knowing who to trust and how to discern who’s telling the complete story. Because if everyone has secrets, are they truly family or only strangers? Read Strangers We Know to find out.” —Georgina Cross, bestselling author of The Stepdaughter

“Elle Marr burst onto the suspense scene in 2020 with her bestselling debut, The Missing Sister, and followed up a year later with Lies We Bury, another trust-no-one murder mystery. With her third novel, Strangers We Know, Marr firmly establishes herself as a master of ‘did that really just happen?’ thrillers. Strangers We Know has plot twists so unexpected and characters so creepy you won’t want to turn out the lights, and the ending is surprising in multiple ways. Who knew a deranged-serial-killer whodunit could leave you with all the feels?” —A.H. Kim, author of A Good Family

“Dark family secrets, serial murder, and a cult? Yes, please. Twisty and a little twisted, the highly addictive and surprise-packed Strangers We Know will have you pulling an all-nighter.” —Heather Chavez, author of No Bad Deed

“From the first page I was gripped by Strangers We Know and read through the night till the end. The novel is thrilling beyond belief, with suspense and twists ratcheting up on each page. Elle Marr is brilliant at delving into the darkness of a seemingly normal family, and by the time she pulls back the curtains on each character, the terror has built so excruciatingly, you just have to keep going till you find out every single thing—you’re afraid to know, but you have to know. This is the year’s must read.” —Luanne Rice, bestselling author of The Shadow Box

Praise for Elle Marr

“A deep, deep dive into unspeakable memories and their unimaginably shocking legacy.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The suspenseful plot is matched by the convincing portrayal of the vulnerable Claire, who just wants to lead a normal life. Marr is a writer to watch.” Publishers Weekly

“Marr’s #OwnVoices, trust-no-one thriller unravels with horrifying ‘THEN’ interruptions, producing a jolting creepfest of twisted revenge.” Booklist

“In Lies We Bury, Elle Marr (bestselling author of The Missing Sister) has brought a cleverly plotted and compelling new mystery with unique characters and truly surprising twists.” —The Nerd Daily

“A deep, thrilling dive into the painful memories that haunt us and the fight between moving on or digging in and seeking revenge.” —Medium

“A twisted mash-up of Room and a murder mystery, Marr’s Lies We Bury is a story that creeps into your bones, a sneaky tale about the danger of secrets and the power the past holds to lead us into a deliciously devious present. Say goodbye to sleep and read it like I did, in one breathless sitting.” —Kimberly Belle, international bestselling author of Dear Wife and Stranger in the Lake

“Dark and compelling, Elle Marr has written another atmospheric and twisted thriller that you don’t want to miss. Lies We Bury delves into the darkest of pasts and explores the fascinating tension between moving on and revenge. This is a fly-through-the-pages thriller.” —Vanessa Lillie, Amazon bestselling author of Little Voices and For the Best

“This haunting and emotional thriller will keep you up at night looking for answers.” —Dea Poirier, international bestselling author of Next Girl to Die

“A clever, twisty murder mystery packed full of secrets and lies that will keep you turning the pages way past bedtime. Lies We Bury hooked me from page one and kept me guessing until its dramatic conclusion.” —Lisa Gray, bestselling author of Thin Air

“Marr’s debut novel follows a San Diego medical student to, around, and ultimately beneath Paris in search of the twin sister she’d been drifting away from. Notable for its exploration of the uncanny bonds twins share and the killer’s memorably macabre motive.” Kirkus Reviews

“[A] gritty debut…The intriguing premise, along with a few twists, lend this psychological thriller some weight.” Publishers Weekly

“Elle Marr’s first novel has an intriguing premise…The characters are well drawn and complex, and Marr’s prose offers some surprising twists.” —New York Journal of Books

“A promising plotline.” Library Journal

The Missing Sister is a very promising debut—atmospheric, gripping, and set in Paris. In other words, the perfect ingredients for a satisfying result.” —Criminal Element

“Brimming with eerie mystery and hair-raising details…A chilling read that shows the unique bond of twins.” Woman’s World

“This thrilling debut novel from Elle Marr is a look into the importance of identity and the strength of sisterhood.” Brooklyn Digest

“An electrifying thriller. A must read—Karin Slaughter with a touch of international flair. Just when you think you have it all figured out, Marr throws you for another loop and the roller-coaster ride continues!” —Matt Farrell, Washington Post bestselling author of What Have You Done

“A riveting, fast-paced thriller. Elle Marr hooks you from the start, taking you on a dark and twisted journey. Layered beneath the mystery of a twin’s disappearance is a nuanced, and at times disturbing, exploration of the ties that bind sisters together. With crisp prose, a gripping investigation, and a compelling protagonist, The Missing Sister is not to be missed.” —Brianna Labuskes, Washington Post bestselling author of Girls of Glass

“A gripping thriller. The Missing Sister delivers twists and turns in an exciting, page-turning read that delves into the unique bond that makes—and breaks—siblings.” —Mike Chen, author of Here and Now and Then

From the Publisher

Author Elle Marr writes compelling, diverse, trust-no-one thrillers that speak to the crime junkie in all of us. We all imagine what it would be like to solve a murder. There are entire podcasts, documentaries, and books calling on the average citizen to help catch killers. But in Marr’s newest novel, Strangers We Know, our main character, Ivy Hon, isn’t just looking for answers...she’s at the center of a dangerous investigation.

Ivy was adopted as a baby and never felt the need to seek out her biological lineage. But when it becomes medically necessary to take a genetic test, her worst fears are realized. She’s related to a serial killer—and the FBI needs her help. At the FBI’s request, Ivy moves to the Pacific Northwest to meet and embed herself in her birth family. But the closer she gets to the killer, the sooner she may become a victim of her own ancestry.

Elle Marr is the master of creating a chilling story that’s both relatable and horrifying all at once.
Strangers We Know gripped me until the very last word.

—Megha Parekh, Editor
