Some secrets can’t be kept. . . .

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 the terrible lie they all shared. But now Gordon, the youngest and wildest of the five, has died and the others are thrown together for the first time in years. 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.

    " I thought I had it pegged but had a nice not black and white ending "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Terri Jacobson | 2/14/2014

    " Pretty good book about 5 childhood friends who share a traumatic episode and how this affects their lives as adults. Plot flows nicely and characters are believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dawn | 2/6/2014

    " Most of the Lippman books I read were mysteries, but this one was more suspense than mystery. It took me a long while to figure out what the book was actually going to be about. Once everything became clear, it did pull me in, but it took a while. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Eileen | 1/21/2014

    " I had never read this author. It was not a true mystery. More accurately, it was a tale of interweaving melodramatic character exposes, held loosely to a murder in the woods. I really did not care for any of the characters in the book. It was a waste of time. "
