Psychologically chilling fairytale of the Sinclairs, the offspring of an oligarchy, spending halcyon summers in four houses troubled by the pressures of wealth, broken promises and filial strife. Sharp words wound as fragile, lovelorn Cady recounts the schemes and dreams of the ‘four liars’. What happened during their 15th summer? What dark secrets lie beneath the sugarcoated surface? You won’t be expecting the final electrifying crunch.
