One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Had this on my TBR for some time, and with this article - warning lots of ads - sorry - stating that it may be filmed, and my choice of books rather bad (A Killer's Mind, The Lying Kind), I wanted to read something fast and entertaining.
This one, wow, gripped me right from the start. Up-to-date use of social media (tumblr, 4chan, etc.). Safety precautions mentioned, hacking mentioned but not really en-detail so as not to give a blueprint for would-be-hackers.
Told with short parts consisting of one POV from one of the 4 people in the room when Simon died.
Each with at least one secret that gets revealed, be it from Simons App "About That" or through normal leaks and gossip. Only a few have multiple secrets.
And a lot of twists, most I did not guess, even the reveal surprised me, that is always a good thing.
Highly recommended standalone, as it is concluded and even a few pages about what happens after the conclusion (like with Swipe Right for Murder which I also recommend), high-octane-page-turner, I nearly regret reading that during 3 days.
Really looking forward to the TV-series - if it happens. And will certainly look for other books from this author!
