- In stock online
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...

"You have to know what happens next even if it means missing out on sleep" -- Sarra Manning * Red Online *
"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 *
"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 *
