The Day the Lies Began

Kylie Kaden

TWO COUPLES, FOUR IRONCLAD FRIENDSHIPS, THE PERFECT COASTAL HOLIDAY TOWN.

It happened the day of the Moon Festival. It could have been left behind, they all could have moved on with their lives. But secrets have a habit of rising to the surface, especially in small towns.

With its salt-stung houses and tight community, Lago Point is the scene of postcards, not crime scenes. Wife and mother Abbi, town cop Blake, schoolteacher Hannah and local doctor Will are caught in their own tangled webs of deceit. Sometimes doing wrong can feel completely right.

When the truth washes in, so do the judgements: victim, or vigilante, who will forgive, who will betray? Not all relationships survive. Nor do all residents.

More about the author

“…a gripping and compelling read.”

“… engrossing, and yet the twists and turns aren’t the focus … it’s the tension that builds between each twist that keeps you reading.”

“For fans of domestic noir such as Big Little Lies, it’s a meander, not a romp, through the best and worst of human nature. Kaden, who holds an honours degree in psychology and knows a thing or two about what makes us tick, continues to build her reputation as one to watch.”

“The Day The Lies Began is a highly suspenseful, twisty and unsettling read that will leave you questioning your own morals and ethics, and wondering whether or not justice has been correctly served. If this book is a sign of things to come, then I look forward to Kylie’s next domestic noir thriller.”
