About the Book:
When Clara's boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he's left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he's been kidnapped. Then Luke's older sister, Emily, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears. Emily wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened--even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke's mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected. 

Funny how it’s always us women who are left to deal with the shit men leave behind, isn’t it?

I thoroughly enjoyed The Lies We Told, it was fun trying to work out how all these disparate threads and bring them together...once they start to mesh the novel is tense, enthralling, gripping and mesmerising.

I like Camilla Way's writing style from her well drawn characters to the clever plotting. The characterisation is very strong with not all of them likeable but they are all very human and recognisable as such. This is an emotional and suspenseful story. Well written, with brilliant characterisation, original plot and plenty surprises, it kept me reading into the late hours. I found it to be more than just your average crime thriller and am really looking forward to reading other books by this author.
