Summary

In 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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* The Falkland Islands makes for an unusual setting in this twisty tale of missing children. Catrin Quinn hasn't been the same since her two children died while in the care of her best friend, Rachel. It was an accidental death, but it cost Catrin not only her daughters but also her husband, Ben, and her friendship with Rachel. Catrin's former lover, Callen, feels helpless; he's still in love with Catrin but not sure how to reach her, and he, too, has his own psychic wounds: PTSD, a holdover from the Falklands War. When a young boy goes missing, the local police chief is hesitant to blame locals and wants to protect the tourism trade. But he is the third child to go missing in about a year. Then a fourth child disappears Rachel's youngest boy and Catrin becomes the chief suspect. A pod of beached whales adds another powerful layer of horror to the story, and the proposed plan to euthanize the whales is not one that will please animal activists. 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 (2014). Sharon Bolton also writes as S. J. Bolton.--Alesi, Stacy Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this nail-biter set in the Falkland Islands from Mary Higgins Clark Award-finalist Bolton (Blood Harvest), Catrin Quinn's young sons, Kit and Ned, are killed in a car accident caused by her best friend since childhood, Rachel Grimwood. The only thing that keeps the bereft Catrin functioning is her hatred of Rachel and her vow to kill Rachel to avenge the deaths of her sons. Rachel falls into a deep depression resulting from her overwhelming guilt and the loss of Catrin's friendship. And Callum Murray, who witnessed the accident and failed in his attempt to rescue Kit and Ned, experiences the PTSD that he suffered after fighting for the British in the Falkland Islands war. When a small boy disappears from Stanley-the third boy missing in three years-the townspeople become vigilantes determined to find and punish the abductor. This brilliantly plotted thriller, filled with lies and betrayals, builds to an unexpected, mesmerizing ending. Agent: Anne-Marie Doulton, Ampersand Agency (U.K.). (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
