'Friends forever' becomes a weapon swung with fatal force in Elizabeth Kay's debut. A thriller deftly told through seven lies, the calmly manipulative Jane is a protagonist who will haunt you long after you finish turning the pages. The truth, it turns out, can be far more dangerous than any lie....It's going to be the next massive thriller.
