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)

BOOKS IN TRANSLATION

I'm looking for recommendations for translated books! I've just discovered Polish writer Olga Tokarczuk and been wowed by her books. They're not always an easy read, but a very rewarding one, and I wonder what else I might be missing. Any recommendations, anyone? I'd love to hear them.

Stylish and cool, this is a thriller that examines an ordinary life subsumed and intoxicated by a world of wealth, privilege and power. Superbly executed and tense to the very last page.

Dear Wife is a terrific page-turning thriller. Pacy and well-written, the twist came out of nowhere and I usually see them coming a mile off! Highly recommended.

“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
