When Bish Ortley, a suspended cop, receives word that a bus carrying his daughter has been bombed, he rushes to be by her side. A suspect has already been singled out: a 17-year-old girl who has since disappeared from the scene.

The press has now revealed that she is the youngest member of one of London’s most notorious families. Thirteen years earlier, her grandfather set off a suicide bomb in a grocery store, a bomb her mother confessed to building. Has the girl decided to follow in their footsteps?

To find her, Bish must earn the trust of her friends and family, including her infamous mother, now serving a life sentence in prison. But even as he delves into the deadly bus attack that claimed five lives, the ghosts of older crimes become impossible to ignore.

A gripping fusion of literary suspense and family drama, Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil is a fast-paced puzzle of a novel that will keep readers feverishly turning pages.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Marchetta’s stunning adult debut….Emotionally complex characters complement an intricate plot rife with dizzying twists and devastating reveals. This visceral read manages to capture the emotional aftermath of a mass tragedy while sustaining tension and delivering a scathing indictment of racial profiling, vigilante justice, and the 24-hour news cycle.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A novel of great scope, of past and present, and above all, the Marchetta trademark of a fierce and loving heart.”

    Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief

  • “A stunning marriage of global anguish and personal pain. It’s often heartbreaking, sometimes heart-stopping, and definitely unforgettable.”

    Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street
