This IS a debut yeah?
Crickey it’s just so dam well written that you wouldn’t know.

You get a lot more from this read than you will ever bargain for, a lot more and then some.

The main character being Devon. A very well developed character and well rounded that you can’t help but be pulled into her life.

It’s a political thriller come mystery. I got drawn into all what was happening, the money laundering, the death of her best friend, and got used to the italics surrounding Devon, the little voices,

Little Voices is a political thriller/murder mystery about a former female prosecutor who's set on finding her close friend's killer. However, this woman is now going through postpartum depression which is manifesting itself as a series of scary little voices in her head, telling her the vilest things.

Are these voices helping her, or leading her down a dark path?

I was getting skeptical of where this book was going

4.5 stars!

I had just been complaining about mysteries/thrillers ending too abruptly with too many unanswered questions and then I read Little Voices by Vanessa Lillie. WOW!

A stunning debut, where murder mystery meets political thriller. Devon Burges may be one of the most well-developed characters in a book I’ve read in awhile. As the chapters progressed we learned more about what makes Devon the way she is and we learn more about the voice inside her head. Is this her own internal monologue o

Devon Burges is investigating murder charges against an old college buddy. She’s also suffering severe postpartum symptoms as she tries to readjust to her new roles and realities. She'll use her professional skills of detecting financial fraud to follow the clues, but this isn’t a professional matter, it’s personal. Alec’s been arrested for the killing of his nanny, one of Devon’s good friends.

Debut author Vanessa Lillie is new to the publishing world, but she writes like she was born to do it.

From the first page, Little Voices shoots your heart into your throat and leaves it there. Vanessa Lillie’s genuineness and heartfelt literary sensibilities meld perfectly with her tortured, yet dogged, protagonist and serpentine whodunnit. A sensational debut that will make you welcome all those dark voices in your head.

“Parenthood is a strange, lonely planet that so many inhabit. In those early months, I wanted to read about the psychological complexities new parents can face: terror and elation, exhaustion and euphoria, isolation despite constant physical contact, and loneliness while never being alone. I hope this book will connect me with others who want to explore the difficult paths parenthood takes us down. This is the book I wanted to read as a new parent who loves dark and twisty psychological thrillers.” 0 likes
