5 Star Review: Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton

Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton


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.

My Review 

I would like to thank the publisher for sending an ARC of this book  for an honest review.

This is the first Sharon Bolton book I have read, I have heard good things about the Lacey Flint series by the same author but have never got round to reading this yet.

Firstly I have never read a book which is based in the Falklands. Bolton brought this landscape totally alive for me. what an incredible setting

This Story is told by 3 main characters (islanders)  Catrin, Callum and Rachel. Each holding onto a secret.

This book is full of suspense and is so dark you probably cannot see a hand in front of your face if you were actually in the dark.

This book is defiantly one of the best I have read this year and will be a MASSIVE hit. Right from the first page I was hooked.

This is a must for your TBR list
