Review

"Both better written and more subtle than her previous two bestsellers... To read this novel is to have your nerves slowly but inexorably shredded as, over and again, the tension builds and then evaporates until the final, unexpected denouement" Metro on THE LYING GAME "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 "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 on THE LYING GAME "Atmospheric, mysterious, gripping." Marian Keyes on THE LYING GAME "Another heart-stopping belter of a thriller from an epic talent" -- Isabelle Broom Heat on THE LYING GAME
