It’s a rainy December in 1985, and life on the tiny island ofGuernsey has just become a lot more difficult for fifteen-year-old bookworm Cat Rozier. She’s gone from model pupilto murderer, having just killed her best friend, the beautifuland popular Nicolette. But given Nic’s unforgivable betrayal oftheir friendship, can we blame her?
Twenty years earlier, Cat’s uncle, Charlie Rozier, also needsto make a confession. He believes that he was betrayed by hisbest friend during the Nazi occupation of the island, and nowhe wants the truth to come out. Through audio recordingsCharlie left behind before his death and letters written by Cat’sfather, Émile, we piece together Charlie’s clandestine wartimeadventures and the lies buried deep in the island and withinone family.
On a small island, you’d think there could be no secrets,but they are everywhere -- and they are inescapable. Captivating,moving and full of dark humour, The Book of Lies takes uson a lively journey with two unreliable narrators whose uniquevoices we will not easily forget.
