Brief Description

Publishers Weekly calls Jessica Treadway's latest novel Lacy Eye (Grand Central Publishing/​Hachette Book Group, March 2015) a "deftly plotted psychological thriller… a devastating portrait of a family torn apart from both the outside and within."

A brutal home invasion results in the death of Hanna Schutt's husband Joe, and leaves Hanna herself permanently disfigured. Their college-age daughter Dawn's boyfriend, Rud Petty, is convicted of the crime, but three years later he wins an appeal and a new trial. The prosecution wants Hanna to testify, hoping she will remember that Dawn herself played a role in the attacks, but Hanna does everything in her power to defend her daughter's innocence.
