Lies Like Wildfire

Lies Like Wildfire


Secrets and lies are everywhere in this compulsive page-turner, perfect for fans of TikTok favourites One of Us is Lying, We Were Liars and This Lie Will Kill You.

Five friends. One secret.

In Gap Mountain, California, everyone knows about fire season.

And no one is more vigilant than 18-year-old Hannah Warner, the sheriff's daughter.

That is until Hannah and her best friends accidentally spark a deadly wildfire that destroys their hometown.

Desperate to hide the truth, the group makes a pact of silence. But their twisted secret begins to spin out of control and when one of the friends disappears they all become suspects.

We know how it starts but where does it end?
