And one parent is dead.
Was it a murder, a tragic accident or just good parents gone bad? As the parents at Pirriwee Public are about to discover, sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal ...

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Liane Moriarty’s juicy murder mystery might have taken over the world, but as an audiobook, it asserts its Australian roots. Embedded in Moriarty’s riveting portrait of the upper middle class are authentic, evocative details about life on the Aussie coast that come sharply into focus thanks to narrator Caroline Lee. With its compelling cast of layered women and troublesome husbands, supported by a campy chorus of gossips, this is a very entertaining yet complex story that builds to an astonishing ending—one that’s sure to intrigue fans of the hit television series. Never too chipper, grisly or dense, this is one audiobook you’ll want to binge until the end.
Excellent book but poor narration
This book is engaging and unputdownable. It addresses big issues in a meaningful but engrossing way. The trouble is that the narrator has a whiny, snarky way of portraying most of the characters that was very off-putting for this listener. I think I would have preferred to have read this one.
An audiobook you can’t stop listening to. Something new and interesting every chapter! Was very disappointed that it ended.
It’s funny, it’s sad and it’s so relatable
