Summary:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the “pulse-quickening” (Good Housekeeping, UK) In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 comes Ruth Ware’s highly anticipated third novel, featuring her signature “verve and energy” (Library Journal).

On a cool June morning, Isa Wilde, a resident of the seemingly idyllic coastal village of Salten, is walking her dog along a tidal estuary. Before she can stop him, Isa’s dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick—and to her horror, she discovers it’s not a stick at all…but a human bone. As her three best friends from childhood converge in Salten to comfort a seriously shaken-up Isa, terrifying discoveries are made, and their collective history slowly unravels. Tackling the slipperiness of your memories, the relativity of truth, and the danger of obsessive friendships, The Lying Game is a gripping mystery with compelling characters and electric prose, resulting in an unputdownable thriller.

    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.

  • Jill K

    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.

  • Sonja M

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

  • ting hei l

    The narrator is great. The story is too repetitive.

  • aubrey f

    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

  • BreAnna H

    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
