THE WHITE LIE BY ANDREA GILLIES

One hot summer day, Michael Salter, 19-year-old scion of a posh Highland family disappears. When his childlike aunt claims she drowned him during a fight, the family close ranks. No police. No memorial service. No titbits for village gossips. A decade of deceit begins. Narrated by Michael from beyond the grave, Andrea Gillies debut novel unpicks the web of lies, some white, some not, that entangle the salters, bringing the closed world of the big house to life with cinematic clarity.

Andrea Gillies writes magnificently on everything she touches.
