Four friends. One promise.

But someone isn't telling the truth.

The text message arrives in the small hours of the night. It's just three words: I need you.

Isa drops everything, takes her baby daughter and heads straight to Salten.

She spent the most significant days of her life at boarding school on the marshes there, days which still cast their shadow over her.

At school Isa and her three best friends used to play the Lying Game. They competed to convince people of the most outrageous stories. Now, after seventeen years of secrets, something terrible has been found on the beach.

Something which will force Isa to confront her past, together with the three women she hasn't seen for years, but has never forgotten. Theirs is no cosy reunion: Salten isn't a safe place for them, not after what they did.

It's time for the women to get their story straight...

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Atmospheric, mysterious, gripping." Marian Keyes 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 "Cancel your plans for the weekend when you sit down with this book, because you won't want to move until it's over." Kirkus, Starred Review "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 "There can be no complaints about the fizzy present-day narrative, with the interplay between the women particularly well-handled." -- John Dugdale The Sunday Times

“Ms. Ware's best by far!”

I've read all books published by Ruth Ware, to date, and found The Lying Game to be the best. It was plausible and completely believable that four school girl besties, keen on telling outrageous lies as teens,... More

“Another hit for Ruth Ware”

This is the third book by Ruth Ware that I have read and it has to be one of the best novels she has written. I enjoyed the concept of the book, four old school friends that haven't seen each other for years... More
