On a cool June morning, a woman is walking her dog in the idyllic coastal village of Salten along a tidal estuary known as the Reach. Before she can stop him, the dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick, but to her horror, turns out to be something much more sinister…

The next morning, three women in and around London—Fatima, Thea, and Isabel—receive the text they had always hoped would NEVER come, from the fourth in their formerly inseparable clique, Kate, that says only, “I need you.”

The four girls were best friends at Salten, a second rate boarding school set near the cliffs of the English Channel. Each different in their own way, the four became inseparable and were notorious for playing the Lying Game, telling lies at every turn to both fellow boarders and faculty, with varying states of serious and flippant nature that were disturbing enough to ensure that everyone steered clear of them. The myriad and complicated rules of the game are strict: no lying to each other—ever. Bail on the lie when it becomes clear it is about to be found out. But their little game had consequences, and the girls were all expelled in their final year of school under mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of the school’s eccentric art teacher, Ambrose (who also happens to be Kate’s father).

First off I did enjoy this book better than The Woman in Cabin 10 so that is a plus. Did I absolutely LOVE this book? No, but I did enjoy it. I enjoyed the way it was written, the way she went from describing the girl’s past at Salten to the present day. It was a seamless transition between the two. I enjoyed how each of the four girls had their own distinct personality but somehow were able to all be friends. They could be apart for years and come running at a moment’s notice if there was trouble. That is true friendship.

As far as the twist went, I didn’t really see it coming until it was just about to be revealed but I also wasn’t that shocked by it. However, I did enjoy everything leading up to the twist. I did find Isa to be very irritating at times, especially the parts of the story that involved her boyfriend.


The fact that she was getting mad at him was insane to me. Girl you are being sketchy, traveling to visit your friend without telling him why (with his child!), and then proved him right about Luc. Get a grip. I am also on the fence about Kate going back into that burning house for Luc. Not sure if I love that ending or hate it. Lastly the final line in the book just had me rolling my eyes.

Favorites Quotes:
“That’s the trouble with having a “click” as Mary Wren might call it. When you define yourself by walls, who’s in, who’s out. The people on the other side of the wall become, not just them, but them. The outsiders. The opposition. The enemy.”

“A lie. I’d almost forgotten how they feel on my tongue, slick and sickening.”
