Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling author of the “pulse-quickening” (Good Housekeeping, UK) In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 comes Ruth Ware’s highly anticipated third novel, featuring her signature “verve and energy” (Library Journal).On a cool June morning, Isa Wilde, a resident of the seemingly idyllic coastal village of Salten, is walking her dog along a tidal estuary. Before she can stop him, Isa’s dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick—and to her horror, she discovers it’s not a stick at all…but a human bone. As her three best friends from childhood converge in Salten to comfort a seriously shaken-up Isa, terrifying discoveries are made, and their collective history slowly unravels. Tackling the slipperiness of your memories, the relativity of truth, and the danger of obsessive friendships, The Lying Game is a gripping mystery with compelling characters and electric prose, resulting in an unputdownable thriller.

About the Author

English born author, Ruth Ware, grew up in Lewes, Sussex and then studied at Manchester University in North London. She had several jobs before her writing career became her profession. She worked as a waitress, bookseller, and when she lived in Paris, she taught English as a foreign language. After returning to North London, she became a publisher's publicity agent. What better way to become familiar with getting her own work published?

Her debut book In a Dark, Dark Wood immediately made the New York Times bestseller list, and was also bought for a potential film for Reese Witherspoon to produce. Her initial offering was followed by The Woman in Cabin 10, and The Lying Game. They are both best sellers and have also been sold for potential movie production.

Ruth Ware has a fourth book scheduled to be released in mid-2018. It is titled The Death of Mrs. Westaway. As with the previous three, the new novel will be another in the mystery and crime genre. She currently lives in Northern London with her two children and husband, Ian.
