Publisher Description

A dark, unnerving thriller from award-winning New York Timesand international bestselling author, Lisa Unger.

About to graduate from university in upstate New York, Lana Granger takes a job in town looking after eleven year old Luke. Expelled from schools all over the country, manipulative Luke is accustomed to controlling the people in his life. He likes to play games. But in Lana he may have met his match. Or has Lana met hers?

Because Lana is a liar. She has told so many lies about where she comes from and who she is, that even she can't remember the truth.

Then Lana's closest friend Beck mysteriously goes missing, and Lana's alibi for the night of the disappearance doesn't match with eyewitness accounts. Now, Lana finds herself lying again - to friends, to the police, to herself. Lana is willing to do almost anything to keep the truth - about her last night with Beck, about everything - from coming out. Even so, it might not be enough to keep her shocking secrets dead and buried.

But somebody knows all about Lana's lies. And they are dying to tell.

'Lisa Unger is one of my favorite authors. She gets better and better with each book' Karin Slaughter

'Deeply plotted and complex and carries an undeniable momentum. Lisa Unger's enthralling cast of characters pulled me right in and locked me down tight. This is one book that will have you racing to the last page, only to have you wishing the ride wasn't over' Michael Connelly

'This is a stunning, mind-bending shocker with moments of sheer terror-one of the best thrillers I've read this year!' Tess Gerritsen

'Twisty, riveting, and enormously exciting. Lisa Unger is a powerful and elegant writer' Joseph Finder

'Suspenseful, sensitive, sexy, subtle ... The best nail-biter I have read for ages. Highly recommended' Lee Child

'A stunning, powerful novel! Lisa Unger's taut prose grabs the reader from word one and never lets go. In this tantalizing tale of family suspense, beware of who you trust and be forewarned about what might happen next' Lisa Gardner

'A tense exploration of what lies beneath the white picket fence of ordinary life. Harlan Coben has a new rival for his thriller crown' John Connolly

Coming in July 2015: Crazy Love You, Lisa Unger's gripping new thriller….
