At the beginning Freddie, a teenager going through some issues at school, comes home late (early hours of the morning) to tell his parents, Sarah and Tom, that he has killed somebody.
Sarah and Tom are totally different characters and the story goes through how they met, the lies they told to each other and the secrets they kept from the other one. Cleverly plotted with numerous sub-plots, twists and turns. The narrative is split between the present and past, the latter showing the path both parents have taken to end up where they are.
Another great read from this author.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Penguin General UK and Jane Corry for my ARC of The Lies We Tell in return for an honest review.
