About the Author

Maureen Lindley, born in Berkshire and raised in Scotland and England, was trained as a psychotherapist. She is the author of two previous novels, The Private Papers of Eastern Jewel and A Girl Like You. She lives in the Wye Valley on the border between southern England and Wales.


"Beautifully written and unnervingly believable... a stunning character study of a most disturbed and malicious mind."--Liz Nugent, author of UNRAVELING OLIVER
"THE BELOVEDS is a fascinating journey through a psyche so obsessive and wounded that nothing, even murder, seems out of bounds, and an exploration of the toxic power of envy to corrode the bonds of sisterhood. A psychological thriller in the truest, best sense."

--Heather Young, author of THE LOST GIRLS
"From the very first page I was gripped by the antics of this superb anti-heroine. I kept thinking: She can't! She won't! But she does. And then some!"

--Robyn Harding, international bestselling author of THE PARTY
"Enthralling... a darkly compelling tale of sibling rivalry."

--Catherine Burns, author of THE VISITORS
"[A] disturbing, darkly funny portrait of barely contained madness ... Lindley keeps the tension humming all the way to a deliciously satisfying finale. The droll voice of the outrageous, tenacious Betty will entrance readers who may find themselves rooting for her as she feverishly schemes to take down anyone in her way."--Publishers Weekly
"It becomes clear that [Betty] is an unreliable narrator, seeing the world through a distorted lens that turns everyone, however nice, into an enemy, with increasingly dire consequence. Some of her actions seem gratuitous, but the reader will press on to see what she gets up to."--Booklist
