All the Beautiful Lies by Peter Swanson


This is genuinely a great read.

On the eve of his college graduation, Harry is called home by his step-mother Alice to their house on the Maine coast, following the unexpected death of his father.

But who is Alice?

Told in a split narrative the damaged character of Alice begins to reveal itself.

Each chapter alternates between “Then” and “Now” – until the stories of Harry and Alice begin to weave together.

What will be the outcome-and will Harry be able to escape?

Gripping, stylishly written and a real page turner.

I literally read this book in one sitting- I just could not put it down.

Definitely recommended.
