Praise for Don't Believe It

Charlie Donlea


Publishers Weekly

“Fast-paced, gripping and addictive, this one will feed your true crime obsession and then some."

POPSUGAR Book Club: 5 of May's Best New Reads

“[A] timely thriller that builds into a shocking conclusion. Don’t Believe It is sure to appeal to fans of true crime docu-dramas, along with readers of Mary Kubica or Shari Lapena.” Library Journal 

“Donlea’s framing of the story as documentary research proves an effective device, and his work reads like the best nonfiction: clear, crisp, and fast-moving.”


“A perfectly executed and entirely satisfying read, Don’t Believe It is a gripping thriller that will blow readers away, from the first page right up to the very last words. Charlie Donlea’s best book yet!”

Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl and Every Last Lie



From the author of the bestselling The Girl Who Was Taken comes another novel of suspense chocked full of breathtaking twists, and a haunting, surprise ending Donlea’s novels are known to deliver…

The Girl of Sugar Beach is about to become the most watched documentary in television history. The ten-part true-crime serial centers on the burning question: Did Grace Sebold murder her boyfriend while on Spring Break vacation, or is she the victim of a shocking miscarriage of justice? Grace has spent the last ten years in a St. Lucian prison, and now she’s reaching out to filmmaker Sidney Ryan in a final, desperate attempt to prove her innocence.

As Sidney begins researching the story, she is shocked by what she finds. And when the first episodes go to air, exposing startling new evidence and additional suspects, the series quickly becomes a ratings juggernaut — and makes Sidney a celebrity in her own right —as millions tune in each week to find out what new clues have been discovered about the mysterious woman at the center of a grisly crime. As Sidney rushes to stay one episode ahead of her television show’s weekly airings, jetting from network meetings in New York to the scene of the murder at a luxurious resort on the island of St. Lucia, to the prison where Grace Sebold waits for exoneration, a troubling picture of the truth unfolds.

With each new episode, public outcry grows louder for officials to reopen the case. But as the show surges towards its final episodes, and Sidney dives deeper into Grace’s past, she uncovers layer after layer of deception that makes her wonder if she’s helping an innocent woman or actually working to free a ruthless killer. And as she edges closer to the real heart of the story, Sidney must decide if finding the truth is worth risking her newfound fame, her career . . . even her life. Read More
