|Summary, etc.:||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, but 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.|

Lying Game : A Novel
(c) Copyright Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
Imogen Church's convincing range of accents, modulations, and control allow her to voice multiple viewpoints adroitly, proving to be more effective than many full-cast recordings. Ware's newest features an ensemble, this time four friends whose boarding school bonds have frayed since becoming adults with separate lives. Isa is a new mother on leave from civil service lawyer-ing. When she receives an abrupt "I need you" text from Kate, an artist who never left the coastal village where the girls met, Isa immediately heads to remote Salten. Isa knows Fatima, a doctor whose headscarf declares her rededication to her Muslim faith, and Thea, a casino worker who's perhaps as troubled now as she was then, will also be there. Reunited at the Mill house, once the quartet's home-away-from-home, Kate divulges that a corpse was discovered in the nearby marshes. The "lying game," which kept the girls' secrets buried for almost 20 years, is finally up. These four frightened, threatened women must figure out which confessions might save the rest of their lives. VERDICT For Ware fans, this is Game on. ["Though not as chill-inducing as her previous titles, Ware's latest offers nuanced characters, an atmospheric small-town British setting, and a satisfying mystery": LJ 6/15/17 review of the Scout: S. & S. hc.]-Terry Hong, Smithsonian BookDragon, Washington, DC Â© Copyright 2017.
