Everyone Here is Lying by Shari Lapena
Another twisty thriller from Shari Lapena! When a child goes missing, neighbourhood secrets come to the surface, threatening to destroy families. Fingers point at everyone, including the girl’s father and the son of the woman he is having an affair with.
Lapena’s crisp writing style makes for an easy read with a fast-paced plot to keep the pages turning. Told from multiple points of view, the story unfolds with an intimate look inside the lives of neighbourhood residents. More than one household has something to hide.
When the truth is revealed, the ending comes a bit abruptly. I found this to be an effective close to the main storyline, but would have liked an epilogue to see the aftereffects on the families involved.
All in all, a suspenseful mystery with plenty of neighbourhood drama, Everyone Here is Lying will keep you reading till the shocking end.
