“One year ago, there was a party.
At the party, someone died.
Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.
But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late.
Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago.
Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?
Or will their lies destroy them all?”
I won’t lie, I had very mixed feelings about this book. I was drawn in by this book because the premise reminded me of One of us is lying by Karen M. McManus which I loved so it really intrigued me. I was drawn in by the story at the start but as it went on I found parts a bit drawn out and then it kind of starts to reveal what’s happening in the middle and I thought it was a bit of an anticlimax. I originally wanted to give it 3 stars for this. However, there is a HUGE twist towards the end that I did not see coming which definitely raised the rating for me. If the whole book had been as gripping as the final few chapters I would have given it 5 stars but I decided to settle for 4 stars. I also had very mixed feelings about the characters. I found Parker very narcissistic which I guess was the point but I felt it was a little over the top and it was just annoying. I would say that it is a good read but not as good as it could have been.
Have you read this lie will kill you? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
