Due for release 8th February 2018

It isn’t a game when somebody dies . . .

The text message arrives in the small hours of the morning. It’s just three words: I need you. Isa drops everything, takes her baby daughter and heads straight to Salten. She spent the most significant days of her life at boarding school on the marshes there, days which still cast their shadow over her.

At school Isa and her three best friends used to play the Lying Game. They competed to convince people of the most outrageous stories. Now, after seventeen years of secrets, something terrible has been found on the beach. Something which will force Isa to confront her past, together with the three women she hasn't seen for years, but has never forgotten. It’s time for the women to get their story straight.

‘Thank goodness for Ruth Ware . . . You won’t be able to put [The Lying Game] down’
