The Lying Game

61KfN2TXC9LI resisted The Lying Game, by Ruth Ware, even after Reese Witherspoon picked it as a book club selection.While I liked In a Dark, Dark Wood (reviewed here), her next book, The Woman in Cabin 10 (reviewed here) was not as good. I liked The Lying Game, but I didn’t love it (following the trend of the last few weeks). The ending, however, did keep me up late one night. To begin this tale, a woman’s dog finds a human bone along an estuary. This discovery prompts Kate to text her three high school best friends, “I need you.” The friends come immediately to Kate’s aid, each one having spent their days since high school, covering up this death. The book had a somewhat original premise and a good rush-to-the-resolution ending, but it wasn’t great.
