Beverley McLachlin’s debut novel, Full Disclosure, which introduced readers to Jilly Truitt, was a #1 national bestseller and short-listed for the Arthur Ellis Best First Crime Novel Award. Her memoir, Truth be told, was an instant bestseller and won the prestigious Writers’ Trust Shaughnessy Cohen Prize and the Ottawa Book Award for Non-Fiction. From 2000 to 2017, McLachlin was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada. She is the first woman to hold that position and the longest-serving Chief Justice in Canadian history. In 2018, McLachlin became a Companion of the Order of Canada, the highest honour within the order. Now, she brings us her latest book Denial, a taut new thriller starring tough-as-nails defense attorney Jilly Truitt in a murder case that makes her question her own truths.
