When everything you say is a lie, can you even remember the truth?
Annie lives a quiet, contained, content life. She goes to work. She meets her friend. She’s kind of in a relationship. She’s happy. Not lonely at all.
If only more people could see how friendly she is — how eager to help and please. Then she could tick “Full Happy Life” off her list. But no one sees that side of Annie, and she can’t understand why.
That all changes the night Chloe Hills disappears. And Annie is the last person to see her.
This is her chance to prove to everybody that she’s worth something. That is, until she becomes a suspect.
Drenched in atmosphere and taut with tension, All Your Little Lies takes a hard look at why good people do bad things.
All Your Little Lies is the kind of psychological thriller I love – an engaging, weird and secretive main protagonist, a mystery with subtle twists and turns and an unpredictable feel throughout.
Annie may have been the last person to see a missing girl but Annie holds secrets of her own. As she gets more and more obsessively involved in the case, years of hiding from her own truth affects every aspect of her current life.
The writing is terrific with a real feel for the characters and Annie has an off kilter, absorbing and quirky oddness to her that keeps you with her all the way. You feel sorry for her and exasperated by her in equal measure and at the same time are utterly riveted by the hunt for a missing girl.
With a compelling past present vibe, a cleverly crafted plot and some beautifully intense prose All Your Little Lies has a hugely addictive quality and I recommend it
