||Author of the New York Times Notable Book The Boy Who Went Away—winner of the Rome Prize and the British Society of Authors’ McKitterick Prize—Eli Gottlieb returns with The Face Thief. A powerfully dark and gripping tale of two men obsessed with one very charismatic, very  damaged woman who’s determined to con from each of them everything she needs to survive, The Face Thief offers highest quality psychological suspense—an ideal follow up to the author’s  masterful  Now You See Him. A writer who can do no wrong, Eli Gottlieb shines with The Face Thief—an effective, provocative, and all around extraordinary novel, written with the literary flair and power of Ian McEwan and rich in its searing portraits of fallible lovers and marriages under siege.|
||THE FACE THIEF, Eli Gottlieb's third novel, is a dark tale of psychological suspense. Margot Lassiter, its charismatic main character, believes, as Gottlieb writes, that "the real reason we have faces is to hold back what we're thinking from the world." Able to uncannily modify her body language and facial expressions, she uses those skills to perpetrate a series of romantic and financial scams on unsuspecting men. With THE FACE THIEF, Gottlieb, whose other books include THE BOY WHO WENT AWAY and NOW YOU SEE HIM, cements his reputation as a writer of edge-of-your-seat thrillers.
