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.
Hooray! I finally read a book by Sharon Bolton (aka S. J. Bolton) and am encouraged to pick up others by her. I was completely invested in Little Black Lies and had no clue as to what was to come. At times, it was a little too descriptive for me; therefore, it didn't receive a 4.25/5 rating, but it was close. Good stuff. Very good stuff! :)
