The Accomplice Summary

Owen Mann is charming, privileged, and chronically dissatisfied. Luna Grey is secretive, cautious, and pragmatic. Despite their differences, they form a bond the moment they meet in college. Their names soon become indivisible—Owen and Luna, Luna and Owen—and stay that way even after an unexplained death rocks their social circle.

They’re still best friends years later, when Luna finds Owen’s wife brutally murdered. The police investigation sheds light on some long-hidden secrets, but it can’t penetrate the wall of mystery that surrounds Owen. To get to the heart of what happened and why, Luna has to dig up the one secret she’s spent her whole life burying.

The Accomplice novel brilliantly examines the bonds of shared history, what it costs to break them, and what happens when you start wondering how well you know the one person who truly knows you.

The Accomplice Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lisa Lutz just gets better and better, and . . . The Accomplice may just be her best so far.”CrimeReads

“There’s no one in crime fiction more inventive than Lisa Lutz, and The Accomplice is her greatest sleight of hand yet. Wry and menacing, with the gravity-defying grace of a skipped stone, The Accomplice is at once a suspenseful thrill ride, a deep and disquieting meditation on friendship, and a Wes Anderson comedy rolled into one. After this, I’d read her grocery list.”—Amy Gentry, bestselling author of Good as Gone and Bad Habits

“Masterfully plotted, The Accomplice is both a keep-you-guessing mystery—like, seriously, I didn’t see any of it coming—and a keenly and tenderly observed character study and portrait of a beautiful friendship complicated by a strange body count that keeps growing around them. I was rooting for Owen and Luna, but murder has a way of testing the bounds of even the tightest of best friends.”—Attica Locke, author of Bluebird, Bluebird and Heaven, My Home

“[An] atmospheric, well-plotted, and brilliantly narrated story, which is at once mysterious, suspenseful, and witty.”Booklist (starred review)

“Quirky characters, humor in unexpected places, and a twisty but plausible plot keep the pages turning. Readers will be torn between eagerness to get to the bottom of the novel’s mysteries—and reluctance for the adventure to end.”Publishers Weekly

I have read all of Lisa Lutz’ books. In ny opinion this is the best since the Spellman files (which will always be my favorite). Of course it is a very different tone, much darker and more serious, but still very good. And of course, if you’re familiar with the Hudson valley area, you will appreciate its authenticity to its setting.

I loved the different relationship turns and how perception changes everything. Communication is key, no matter what, in great relationships. Hit home in a non murderous way lol.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the story of Luna and Owen

And the bad luck that seems to happen to people around them. Told in two alternating time periods – when they were young/college age and older/married.

The book begins with the older Luna/Owen, Owen is married to Irene, and Luna is married to Sam. They live in the same neighborhood and Luna and Irene are friends. Luna finds Irene shot dead and so begins a murder investigation with Owen is the main suspect.

Luna and Owen meet in college and become friends. Luna had been living with a secret since she was a child. The secret is not revealed for most of the book. Owen is sleeping with a girl named Scarlet. He is trying to avoid her and she is stalking him. Scarlet is found dead and Owen is the main suspect.

Luna by virtue of her past, and her close relationship with Owen, is also suspect in both deaths.
A good book, with a story line that keeps you reading.
