But they need to find out who is behind the game, before it's too late.

Praise for One of Us is Lying:
'Tightly plotted and brilliantly written, with sharp, believable characters, this whodunit is utterly irresistible' - HEAT

Amazing book

Couldn’t put it down!!

Brilliant sequel!

I have been left quite a bit down by the sequels of a few books and I worried if the same would happen here! I loved One of Us Is Lying and thought Two Can Keep A secret (McManus' other book) was a great read. I'm glad to report, all your favourite characters return in this book which is just as good.

Set a year after the events of the first book, we follow three new characters; Maeve, Knox and Phoebe, as they attempt to uncover the identity of a student who has started a new game with 2 objectives, take a dangerous dare or reveal your most humiliating secret.

The novel continues the mixture of red-herrings and mystery solving. We not only follow the investigation but how the character's daily lives are effected. McManus' biggest skill in writing is diving right into the minds of the teenager, which she does in relatable accruacy. Certain storyplots featured are highly tense and emotional, so expect lot's of drama!

On the whole this book is a wonderful follow-up. If One of Us can get a great sequel, than I'm sure McManus can do the same with Two can Keep a Secret!

On another note, I am beyond happy that Universal have secured the rights to adapt this book series into a TV show / film for their upcoming streaming service. If done right, I bet it will turn out great!
