Product Details


“Creepy, twisted, darkly funny, and totally riveting, Lee Irby’s Unreliable kept me guessing from the first page to last. You’ll be off kilter the whole ride on this tilt-a-whirl of a book, and you’ll enjoy every second.”
—Lisa Unger, The New York Times bestselling author of Ink and Bone

“Lee Irby’s Unreliable is just that—a wild ride of a story you can’t trust but won’t want to put down.”
—Lori Rader-Day, Anthony Award winning author of The Black Hour

Unreliable is, in truth, irresistible – an impressive high-wire act of a thriller combining the comic and the tragic in pitch-perfect style.  Think Edgar Allen Poe meets Steve Martin with drugs, sex, and rock and roll tossed in, or maybe it is Psycho transported to the lunatic Deep South.  Readers will race along, wondering whodunnit–and sometimes if it was even dun–but by the time the ride is over they will be laughing too hard to remember the question.”
Les Standiford, The New York Times bestselling author of Last Train to Paradise

“A tour de force of unreliable first-person narration . . . The Tell-Tale Heart meets Lolita.”
—The Tampa Bay Times

“A quietly simmering tale . . . Unreliable is paced like a thriller . . . akin to books like Michael Chabon’s Wonder Boys or John Cheever’s classic story ‘The Swimmer.'”
—The Providence Journal

“At once side-splittingly funny and nerve-wrackingly sinister, Unreliable reads like a whirling dervish on speed straight through its gasp-inducing conclusion. And Irby’s fevered imagination channels a place in time travel where Edgar Allan Poe and Tom Robbins might have collaborated in unexpected harmony.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch

“A viciously delicious thriller . . . Unreliable is tense, hypnotic and elegantly assembled.”
