Melanie Oak appeared to have the perfect life. Married to her childhood sweetheart, Jacob, the couple live with their beautiful, loving, teenage daughter, Beth, in a pretty village. Nothing can shake her happiness -- until the day that Beth goes missing, and is discovered beaten almost to the point of death, her broken body lying in a freezing creek on the marshes near their home. Consumed with grief, Melanie is determined to find her daughter's attacker. Someone in the village must have seen something. Why won't they talk?

Would you listen to The Darkest Lies again? Why?

yes, great twist at the end

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Darkest Lies?

Finding out who the attacker was

Any additional comments?

At first i found the narrator's slow speech a bit like a teacher reading to a year 1 class. I thought it was obvious who was the attacker and was starting to get annoyed with the mother for not realising it herself. Keep reading because it is not what you expect ........
