The Stories You Tell is Shamus Award–winning and Anthony and Macavity Award–nominated author Kristen Lepionka’s heart-pounding third novel that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats with her signature twists and mile-high stakes. A late-night phone call is never good news, especially when you’re Roxane Weary. This one is from her brother Andrew, whose evening was interrupted by an urgent visit from Addison, a hip young DJ and one-time fling, who turns up at his apartment scared and begging to use his phone. She leaves as quickly as she appeared, but now Andrew is worried―especially when Addison never makes it home and her friends and family demand to know where she is. As the police begin to suspect that something may have happened to Addison, and that Andrew is involved, Roxane tracks Addison’s digital footprint as she goes deeper and deeper into the events preceding her disappearance. Meanwhile, a cop is found dead on the opposite side of town, leading to a swirl of questions surrounding a dance club whose staff―which includes Addison―has suddenly gone AWOL. As Roxane struggles to distinguish the truth from the stories people tell about themselves online, it’s clear that the mystery of Addison’s whereabouts is just the beginning.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Building to a chilling and surprising conclusion, the third book in Lepionka’s Shamus Award–winning series is both intricately plotted and character driven, with a complicated protagonist.” Library Journal
“Entertaining…Fans of plucky female detectives will look forward to Roxane’s further adventures.” Publishers Weekly
“Roxane herself, a remarkably well-drawn and interestingly flawed character, continues to command interest.” Booklist
“Lepionka’s keen eye for integrating national news and technology into her developing characters’ plotlines produces a story that’s timely in more ways than one.” Kirkus Reviews

In the name of writing research, she has gone on multiple police ride-alongs, taken a lock-picking class, trespassed through an abandoned granary, and hiked inside an Icelandic volcano. Her writing has been selected for McSweeney’s “Internet Tendency,” Grift, and Black Elephant. She is also the editor of Betty Fedora, a semiannual journal that publishes feminist crime fiction.
