Synopsis:This moody and arresting thriller is perfect for fans of Tana French. On a beautiful, eerily quiet May morning, a girl is found brutally bludgeoned to death. When Detective Marjory Fleming arrives, the silence of the scene is broken only by the ringing of the girl's cell phone. The nearby community is small and close-knit, but the veneer of contented prosperity conceals nasty secrets and deep betrayals. When another corpse is discovered, Fleming quickly realizes she must watch her own back while she searches for the link between the murders. As she uncovers layer upon layer of intrigue and deceit, it becomes apparent that, while the dead can't tell lies, the living most certainly can.
Lying Dead is the third book in the D.I. Marjory Fleming series and the first in the series that I have read.A crime novel set in Scotland the book is very well written and a great story line that took many twists and turns.I was very surprised when the actual criminal was revealed.I'm excited to read the rest of the series.
