Liane Moriarty, million copy selling author of The Husband's Secret brings us another addictive story of secrets and scandal.

'She could hear men and women shouting. Angry hollers crashed through the soft humid salty summer night. It was somehow hurtful for Mrs Ponder to hear, as if all that rage was directed at her . . . then she heard the wail of a siren in the distance, at the same time as a woman still inside the building began to scream and scream . . .'

When a harmless quiz night ends with an act of shocking violence, the parents of Pirriwee Public School can't seem to stop their many secrets from finally spilling out. Rumours ripple through the small town, as truth and lies blur to muddy the story of what really happened on that fateful night . . .

Reviews

Set among a trio of mums on Sydney’s North Shore, this shocking murder mystery surprises with an unexpected love story.
A delightful read.
The Australian Women's Weekly
Full Review

Deservedly popular Moriarty invigorates the tired social-issue formula of women’s fiction through wit, good humor, sharp insight into human nature and addictive storytelling.
Kirkus Starred Review
Full Review

Moriarty is a fantastically nimble writer, so sure-footed that the book leaps between dark and light seamlessly; even the big reveal in the final pages feels earned and genuinely shocking.

A fun, engaging and sometimes disturbing read.. Moriarty is back in fine form.
USA Today

It's a hell of a good book. Funny and scary. She nails the feuding moms.
