Each protagonist is hiding something: a troubled past, an explosive secret, a marriage that looks perfect to outsiders but is rife with violence. Lies finds suspense and danger in the everyday lives of women, and in doing so, explores some harrowing truths about domestic violence. Marriages, friendships, sisterhood, mother-daughter bonds, all can take hazardous and unexpected turns. And I wanted to press the intensity that exist within female connection and take it to the next level. Three young women who could not be more different meet as college roommates and, in the pressure-cooker environment of their Ivy League school, become fast friends.
Wealthy, privileged, blonde and gorgeous, Kate Eastman seems like she has it all. But her Park Avenue upbringing conceals a tragic loneliness and a wild side powerful enough to drag down everyone around her. Aubrey would follow Kate anywhere — to parties, to nightclubs, even to her death. Will she save them from themselves, and each other, or will she become another victim of the chaos that follows in their wake? A terrible tragedy at the end of freshman year leaves them with a dangerous shared secret. Twenty years later, older but perhaps no wiser, they return to the scene of the crime.
When one of them winds up dead, it could be suicide, or it could be murder. If it was murder, was it the husband — like the cops think — or was it the best friend?
