Additional Notes

From The Publisher*From the New York Times bestselling author of the "twisty-mystery" (Vulture) novel In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10, and The Turn of the Key comes Ruth Ware's The Lying Game.

Isa Wilde knows something terrible has happened when she receives a text from an old friend. Why would Kate summon her and their two friends to the seaside town where they briefly attended the Salten House boarding school together seventeen years ago? The four friends had quickly bonded over the Lying Game-a risky contest that involved tricking fellow boarders and faculty with their lies. Now reunited, Isa, Kate, Thea, and Fatima discover that their past lies had far-reaching effects and criminal implications that threaten them all. In order to protect their reputations, and their friendship, they must uncover the truth about what really happened all those years ago.

Atmospheric and twisty, with just the right amount of chill, The Lying Game will have readers at the edge of their seats, not knowing who can be trusted in this tangled web of lies.
Review Quote*"This is the sort of territory where Ruth Ware is most at home. She's strongest when she's writing about embattled women, best when characters have a slight sense of privilege about themselves, most effective when events creep along the edges of disaster. Ware's new book has all of this plus an air of foreboding that won't go away." 
- TORONTO STAR
Review Quote*"An addictive mystery that reminds us how lies can come back to haunt us, even when we think they're long buried. An absorbing summer read perfect for a stormy night out at the lake, The Lying Game will capture your attention and hold it until the very end."
- WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
Review Quote*"So many questions... Until the very last page! Needless to say, I could not put this book down!"
- REESE WITHERSPOON
Review Quote*"A single cryptic text, ‘I need you,' reunites four friends in the stippled light of an English seaside village just as surely as it signals readers that they're in the hands of a pro…The Lying Game makes good on its premise that tall tales have consequences, especially when they're exposed to the glare of truth."
- NEW YORK TIMES
Review Quote*"Ware's third outing is just as full of psychological suspense as her earlier books, but there is a quietness about this one, a slower unraveling of tension and fear, that elevates it above her others...Cancel your plans for the weekend when you sit down with this book, because you won't want to move until it's over."
- KIRKUS REVIEWS, STARRED REVIEW
Review Quote*"Ware masterfully harnesses the millhouse's decrepit menace to create a slow-rising sense of foreboding, darkening Isa's recollections of the weeks leading to Ambrose's disappearance… with arguably her most complex, fully realized characters yet, this one may become her biggest hit yet."
- BOOKLIST, STARRED REVIEW
Review Quote*"[An] engrossing psychological thriller... Ware builds up a rock-solid cast of intriguing characters and spins a mystery that will keep readers turning pages to the end."
