“So many questions...Until the very last page! Needless to say, I could not put this book down!” —Reese Witherspoon

“Missing Big Little Lies? Dig into this psychological thriller about whether you can really trust your nearest and dearest.” —Cosmopolitan

From the instant New York Times bestselling author of blockbuster thrillers In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 comes a chilling new novel of friendship, secrets, and the dangerous games teenaged girls play.

On a cool June morning, a woman is walking her dog in the idyllic coastal village of Salten, along a tidal estuary known as the Reach. Before she can stop him, the dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick, but to her horror, turns out to be something much more sinister.

The next morning, three women in and around London—Fatima, Thea, and Isa—receive the text they had always hoped would never come, from the fourth in their formerly inseparable clique, Kate, that says only, “I need you.”

The four girls were best friends at Salten, a second-rate boarding school set near the cliffs of the English Channel. Each different in their own way, the four became inseparable and were notorious for playing the Lying Game, telling lies at every turn to both fellow boarders and faculty. But their little game had consequences, and as the four converge in present-day Salten, they realize their shared past was not as safely buried as they had once hoped.

Atmospheric, twisty, and with just the right amount of chill to keep you wrong-footed, The Lying Game is told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, lending itself to becoming another unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.

The lying game

Good but I got a little tired of reading about Freya’s every little sneeze- I’m a devoted mother but Isa is neurotic

The Lying Game

I loved her other books from star to finish, but this one was hard for me to get into, once I got into it got me guessing who did what to who!

Well crafted thriller

I loved this book! Great twists and turns as you’d expect with any great thriller; but more than anything it was the authors style and voice that I loved. The book flowed so smoothly and brought about so many emotions. Truly titillating! Bought all her other books because of this one alone.
