Review: Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton

Posted on Updated on

Little Black Lies cover picIn such a small community as the Falkland Islands, a missing child is unheard of. In such a dangerous landscape it can only be a terrible tragedy, surely…

When another child goes missing, and then a third, it’s no longer possible to believe that their deaths were accidental, and the villagers must admit that there is a murderer among them. Even Catrin Quinn, a damaged woman living a reclusive life after the accidental deaths of her own two sons a few years ago, gets involved in the searches and the speculation.

And suddenly, in this wild and beautiful place that generations have called home, no one feels safe and the hysteria begins to rise.

But three islanders—Catrin, her childhood best friend, Rachel, and her ex-lover Callum—are hiding terrible secrets. And they have two things in common: all three of them are grieving, and none of them trust anyone, not even themselves.

In Little Black Lies, her most shocking and engaging suspense novel to date, Sharon Bolton will keep the reader guessing until the very last page.

Wow, this book was amazing! The book is divided in three parts, the three different parts are the stories of Catrin, Callum and Rachel. It is set in the Falkland Islands, I really loved it and the place was described beautifully.

The story starts with Catrin. Catrin lost both of her son due to an accident, she believes, was caused by her former best friend Rachel. The only thing Catrin now wants is revenge. In the three years after the accident three children go missing. People on the island don’t know if the disappearances are related or not…

This book was such a page turner, I actually finished the book in one day. Near the end of this book I couldn’t put it down. It’s everything you expect when you want to read a good thriller. There are so many twists in this story, I thought I knew what happened and who did what but I was wrong. I was very suprised by the end of this story.

So if you are a fan of thrillers, you should definitely read this book!
