Lisa Scottoline

Someone Knows


Someone Knows

Lisa Scottoline’s most powerful novel to date. Startling, page-turning, and with an ending that’s impossible to forget, this is a tour de force.

Debut Novel from Francesca Serritella

Lisa’s daughter, Francesca Serritella, with whom she has written their funny memoirs every summer, had her first novel published on May 5, 2020. Lisa couldn’t be prouder of her! She thinks you’ll love it too. She hopes you order it today.


Ghosts of Harvard is written with a masterly, focused hand, belying the fact that this is Serritella’s debut novel. The pages burn with frenetic energy and are peopled by memorable, compelling characters. The tension is palpable, the twists and surprises perfectly timed and the stakes as high as humans should be asked to endure. The end result, a novel you will long remember and characters you will want to see again. A triumph in every respect.”
—#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci

“Wow, what a lively, compelling, and intoxicating debut. Ghosts of Harvard is so many things—a rumination on grief, a glimpse behind the ivory walls of a famous institution, a poignant look at mental illness, and a powerful story about the ghosts that haunt us all. Francesca Serritella is my new ‘go-to’ author.”
—#1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben

“Every time I thought I knew where Ghosts of Harvard was heading, I turned out to be wrong. Part mystery, part ghost story, part psychological thriller, this novel is all entertainment.”
—#1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult

Every year, Lisa and Francesca, her daughter and fellow author, host a two-day event for book clubs at Lisa’s farm in Pennsylvania.


Sneak Peek into Lisa’s Next Book Project

Eternal will be Lisa’s first historical novel, which will be set in Italy during the fascist reign of Mussolini.

I became an author because of Philip Roth, his seminar and his books, especially his survey of the harrowing first-person accounts of the Holocaust. Roth admired very much the books of Primo Levi, notably his Survival in Auschwitz, which haunted me for decades to follow. I knew that someday I would write about the Holocaust in Italy and have been researching and studying it since then.
