Everyone Here is Lying

Everyone Here is Lying


Brought to you by Penguin.

The gripping new thriller from the #1 bestselling author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR

Welcome to Stanhope - a safe neighbourhood. A place for families.

William Wooler is a family man, on the surface. But he's been having an affair, an affair that ended horribly this afternoon at a motel up the road. So when he returns to his house, devastated and angry, to find his difficult nine-year-old daughter Ella unexpectedly home from school, William loses his temper.

Hours later, Ella's family declare her missing.

Suddenly Stanhope doesn't feel so safe. And William isn't the only one on his street who's hiding a lie. As witnesses come forward with information that may or may not be true, Ella's neighbours become increasingly unhinged.

Who took Ella Wooler?

Nothing will prepare you for the truth.

  • I devoured Everyone Here is Lying in two hits in under ten hours. I can't remember the last time I did that! This really was the most addictive book I've read in ages - so slick and disquieting and clever. Just brilliant.
