Staff picks: Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton  

Recommended by Kathleen Honchen, Library Clerk

A great book! This is a mystery set in the Falkland Islands, with a fantastic reveal on the very last page. Highly recommended for lovers of mysteries or who-done-its. [ Reserve this book ]

"...[Bolton's] sharpest skills are in play with her suspense novel Little Black Lies…Her crafty plotting produces an intricately detailed mystery…And her deft characterizations respect the psychological complexities of the three islanders who serve as narrators…The tension of their interplay fuels the suspense, but in the end—literally, on the last page—it's the plot that thrills."
- NY Times book review by Marilyn Stasio
