The Lies We Told Out Today

Already drawing rave reviews in the UK where it’s been drawing comparisons to We Need to Talk about Kevin, THE LIES WE TOLD by Camilla Way has been called “deftly plotted” (Emerald Street), “compelling” (Prima), a “top class psychological thriller” (The Sunday Mirror), and been called readers’ “insomnia buddy” (Stylist).

Camilla’s WATCHING EDIE was a critical hit in 2016 with impressive endorsements from fellow writers, wall-to-wall rave reviews and being a LibraryReads selection. And now, Camilla delivers another tour-de-force suspense novel certain to have readers staying up all night with THE LIES WE TOLD (Berkley Trade Paperback Original; October 9, 2018).

Beth has always known there was something strange about her daughter, Hannah. The lack of emotion, the disturbing behavior, including the apparent delight in hurting others; sometimes Beth is scared of Hannah and what she could be capable of doing.
          Luke comes from the perfect family, with the perfect parents. But one day, he disappears without a trace, and his girlfriend, Clara, is desperate to discover what has happened to him. As Clara digs into the past, she realizes that no family is truly perfect, and uncovers a link between Luke's long-lost sister and a strange girl named Hannah. Now Luke’s life is in danger because of the lies once told and the secrets once kept.

Thanks for stopping by today. Did you find the synopsis intriguing?


  1. We need to talk about Kevin was an amazing (but truly disturbing) book. After reading it I have bought all of Lionel Shriver's other work too.
    The Lies We Told does sound to be cut from the same cloth. Thank you. I think. (I might already be disturbed enough).

  2. Camilla must be thrilled!
    And nice having you back, Mason.

  3. This sounds intriguing, Mason. I've been hearing lots of good things about it, so I'm glad you've reminded me.

  4. I'll let my mother-in-law know as she loves thrillers.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
