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

“Once again the author of The Woman in Cabin 10 delivers mega-chills.” —People

“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.

Over all an interesting story but dragged a lot. Could have told the same story in half the time.

Long, drawn out and uninteresting until the last hour of listening. The characters were unlikeable, and the story felt extremely vague for how drawn out it was. I’m a huge fan of Ruth Ware, but this definitely wasn’t even close to her typical novel. As always, Imogen Church is one of the best narrators you’ll hear!

The mysteryitself was just ok.. the premise of the story, the lying game, seemed weak to me. Slow going all the way through until the very end. I didn't feel connected to any of the characters because there wasn't enough background content. Eh..couldn't wait for it to end.

Second half was really good but first half was slow and dragged on. Way too much description and thoughts of characters rather than action or conversation. Narrator is very good and makes the story come alive.

Fun listen and great narration, but the story is just not very compelling. Predictable ending.

The narrator was great. The plot and character development was very well explained.. I was a little disappointed at the end. I love this author but wasn't my favorite story from her.. definitely worth a listen

Could she talk about breast feeding her baby any more? And it has nothing to do with the plot of the book. It starts off as just getting to know teenage girls. Not a huge fan of this one. It got better towards the end so I had to finish it. The narrator however was amazing
