Reviews

"So many questions... Until the very last page! Needless to say, I could not put this book down!"--Reese Witherspoon
"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
"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
"[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."--Publishers Weekly
"New York Times bestselling author Ruth Ware and her new thriller The Lying Game will have you full of anticipation."--Library Journal
"From the author of the hit novel, The Woman in Cabin 10, comes another edge-of-your-seat thriller you don't want to miss."

--Bustle
"Ware has become a household name in psychological suspense, and her third release is highly anticipated...[The Lying Game is] sure to be her next summer hit."

--Elite Daily
"Readers who've devoured Ware's bestsellers The Woman in Cabin 10 and In a Dark, Dark Wood won't need much encouragement to pick up a copy of her latest thriller. This story...is as gripping and atmospheric as Ware's previous books, with unexpected twists around every corner."--Bookpage
"Perhaps one of the most twisty and suspenseful titles of 2017."--Mystery Tribune
"The Lying Game is tense, addictive, and not to be missed."--Crime by the Book
"Fans of the mystery author who just won't quit will recognize Ware's singular ability to bait and switch in this wholly original story about four friends who conceive, innocently at first, a game of lies with dire repercussions."--Marie Claire
"Missing Big Little Lies? Dig into this psychological thriller about whether you can really trust your nearest and dearest."--Cosmopolitan
"The author of The Woman in Cabin 10 delivers a thoughtful thriller about four friends whose shared childhood secret threatens them now. A gripping whodunnit."--Good Housekeeping
"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 Book Review
"I was eager for Ruth Ware's The Lying Game to come out this year and it did not disappoint. As the eerie and atmospheric story cleverly unfolds, the suspense builds. This intriguing thriller is so much more than a whodunit. Ware reveals the characters' stories and has the reader wondering why 'it' happened. Excellent read."--Bookish
"Ware masterfully combines gothic atmosphere with a chilling contemporary story of psychological suspense."--Booklist
