The Lying Game

Cover: 'The Lying Game'

Staff Review: "The Lying Game" by Ruth Ware

★★★★

Would you drop everything and travel hours with your baby if an old friend texted you, "I need you," after decades of silence? Four friends are reunited after just those three words, years after they were all expelled from a boarding school. Isa, Thea, and Fatima join Kate in a town where they left behind horrible rumors, hurt, and lies. It's not the safest place for them, not after what they did, but Kate brings them back with a panicked warning. Can they really get away with what they did? This is a fast-paced thriller similar to the author's previous novels, and one I couldn't stop reading until the very end. It's available in audio book too, for a great narrated read!
