Lore Rivera was married to two men at once. She led a secret double life - until one man shot the other.
That's the story the world knows.

How did Lore lead two lives? How did it feel when it all came crashing down?

Cassie is surprised that Lore is willing to talk. But as what really happened that fateful summer of 1986 unfurls, will either woman be prepared when the truth comes to light?

About the author

Katie Gutierrez

Katie Gutierrez has an MFA from Texas State University, and has written for Harper's Bazaar, the Washington Post, Longreads, and more. She was born and raised in Laredo, Texas, a city on the U.S.-Mexico border, and now lives in San Antonio with her husband and two young children. She finished writing this novel days before delivering her second child, who turned out to be quite the good luck charm.

Praise for More Than You'll Ever Know

As addictive as a real-life who-dunnit, with thoughtful attention to the ethical implications of the true crime genre, More Than You'll Ever Know explores how we entangle ourselves one choice at a time, and what it costs to unravel the damage. Crystalline and multi-faceted, this is a page-turner brimming with empathy, a window into 1980s Mexico City and Laredo, and the ways community both bouys and pulls us under. Katie Gutierrez is a force, and she writes fabulously complicated, fully-realized characters who will linger with you long after the final page.
