“The past is always with us, and no one knows that better than Laura Lippman. The not-so-innocent games of five children have consequences that resonate through decades, changing some lives and destroying others. Using narration from various viewpoints, including a haunting collective voice, Lippman once again demonstrates her incisive abilities of observation, which make her one of the finest chroniclers of modern society.”
— Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI


Years ago, they were all the best of friends. But as time passed and circumstances changed, they grew apart, became adults with families of their own, and began to forget about the past and one another. With each passing year, the memory of the terrible lie they shared faded as well. Now, though, when Gordon, the ne er do well of their little gang, dies, these long ago friends are suddenly thrown together again. And then the revelations start. Could their long-ago lie be the reason for their troubles today? Each one of these old friends has to wonder if their secret has been discovered and if someone within the circle is out to destroy them.
