LITTLE BLACK LIES hits the May 2015 LibraryReads List!

libraryreads logo squareFANTASTIC NEWS: LITTLE BLACK LIES by Sharon Bolton is #10 on the May 2015 LibraryReads list!

We have long been fans of Sharon Bolton and her creepy Gothic mysteries, especially this latest standalone novel set in the Falkland Islands.

When a child goes missing, three islanders—Catrin, her childhood best friend, Rachel, and her ex-lover Callum—confess to the crime. Each of them are hiding terrible secrets, and they all have two things in common: they are grieving, and none of them trust anyone, not even themselves.

Praise for LITTLE BLACK LIES:

“The Falkland Islands makes for an unusual setting in this twisty tale of missing children. Each of the main characters has a strong and compelling voice; the story unfolds in sections, each from the point of view of a different character, which adds texture and depth to what is a suspenseful and psychologically rich thriller, much in the mold of Tana French’s The Secret Place.” Booklist, starred review

“[A] nail-biter… This brilliantly plotted thriller, filled with lies and betrayals, builds to an unexpected, mesmerizing ending.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“[In her new stand-alone Bolton, author of the Lacey Flint mystery series, continues to delve into the dark side of complex, sympathetic characters, each of whom offer their perspective on the same events. Although the lyrical descriptions of a distant and strange place are striking, it’s the skillfully developed suspense and the portrait of parents’ terror when a child goes missing that grips throughout this tale.”
— Library Journal
