Winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Fiction
It's an author's job to create a new world in the pages of a book. But when lines start to blur and reality begins to fade, getting lost in a story can be dangerous—especially if you can't find your way back...
Madeleine d'Leon doesn't know where Edward came from. He is simply a character in her next book. But as she writes, he becomes all she can think about. His charm, his dark hair, his pen scratching out his latest literary novel...
Edward McGinnity can't get Madeleine out of his mind—softly smiling, infectiously enthusiastic, and perfectly damaged. She will be the ideal heroine for his next book.
But who is the author and who is the creation? And as the lines start to blur, who is affected when a killer finally takes flesh?
After She Wrote Him is a piece of meta-fiction with a wildly inventive twist on the murder mystery genre that takes readers on a journey filled with passion, obsession, and the emptiness left behind when the real world starts to fall away.
'A twisted masterpiece.' - Library Journal
'It's truly unusual, unique, and every thriller lover should make the time to read this.' - Suspense Magazine
'Brisk and refreshing. Gentill sustains her tantalizing premise with crisp prose and accelerating suspense. ' - Kirkus Reviews
'A pure delight...cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed.' - Dean Koontz
'a brilliant blend of mystery, gut-wrenching psychological suspense and literary storytelling. The novel stands as a shining (and refreshing) example of meta-fiction at its best—witty and wry, stylish and a joy to read.' - Jeffery Deaver
'This is an elegant exploration of the creative process, as well as a strong defense of the crime-fiction genre, as Gentill illustrates the crossing of lines between imagination and reality. Rich with insights that can add pleasure to the reading of crime fiction.' - Booklist
A delightful, cerebral novel featuring a crime writer who grows dangerously enamored with her main character. As the interplay between creator and created reaches Russian-nesting-doll complexity, it forces us to question the nature of fiction itself.' - Gregg Hurwitz
After She Wrote Him was previously published as Crossing The Lines.
