Thanks for thinking about reading my books :) What She Knew is a detective novel where you get to experience the case of a missing child through the eyes of the mother of the child and the detective investigating it. The Perfect Girl is more of a sinister family drama. Both are dark and twisty in different ways so I hope either would suit you! I hope you enjoy. Gilly(less)

What would you do to protect your family if the law failed to? This thriller based on Dirk Kurbjuweit’s real-life experience of his family being stalked by a neighbour is tense to its very core. It’s an intelligent page-turner but also an exploration ...more

A superb book. Beautifully written, fine, nuanced characters and a plot that's equal parts unsettling and gripping.

“In the eyes of others, we’re often not who we imagine ourselves to be.”
Gilly Macmillan, What She Knew

“But here's the thing; none of us deserve anything. That's an illusion we all exist under”
Gilly Macmillan, Burnt Paper Sky

“This is what a total breakdown must be, I though. You find yourself standing somewhere you should't be, doing something so out of character that you wonder if you've become someone else entirely. You've lost the plot, taken a wrong turning, jumped into a train whose destination is total lunacy”
Gilly Macmillan, Burnt Paper Sky
