Overview

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 when her dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick, but to her horror, turns out to be something more sinister...

The next morning, three women in and around London--Fatima, Thea, and Isabel--receive the text they had always hoped would never come, from the fourth in their formerly inseparable clique, Kate. It only says, "I need you."

The four girls were best friends at Salten, a 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, with varying states of serious and flippant nature that were disturbing enough to ensure that everyone steered clear of them. But their little game had consequences, and the girls were all expelled in their final year of school under mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of the school's eccentric art teacher, Ambrose (who also happens to be Kate's father).

Atmospheric, twisty, and featuring Ruth Ware's signature "hair-on-the-back-of-your-neck-tingling" ( Marie Claire) prose, The Lying Game proves that she is the Agatha Christie of our time.
