Ruth Ware has done it again! In this exceptional thriller, we are in marshland, where nothing is certain and the deadly secrets we kept with our best childhood friends may be about to resurface. Intriguing to the very last page, this is a superb exploration of friendship, family and a page-turning top-notch mystery that is guaranteed to keep you reading into the wee small hours. I loved it! Liz Nugent, bestselling author of LYING IN WAIT Thank goodness for Ruth Ware, a contemporary crime writer who's successfully extracted the integral elements of the genre's classics... and repackaged them for the modern reader... Ware weaves a nicely knotty, and more importantly, plausible mystery that as well as delivering the expected twists, turns and tension readers will be looking for, also showcases the thorny tensions and loyalties at work in the friendships between her main characters... a book that's gripping enough to be devoured in a single sitting -- Lucy Scholes Independent You have to know what happens next even if it means missing out on sleep -- Sarra Manning Red Online A brilliantly original and atmospheric book Closer Ruth Ware is one of the best suspense writers out there and The Lying Game is her strongest book yet. A gripping, unpredictable narrative that shifts like sand underfoot, and a plot that turns like the tide. Erin Kelly, bestselling author of HE SAID, SHE SAID
