"A brisk, crafty and fascinating psychological thriller... In The Blood is a complex mosaic as well, one that's tricky, arresting and meaningful." (The Washington Post)

Liar, liar, pants on fire . . . 

College senior Lana Granger has told so many lies about her past that the truth seems like a distant, cloudy nightmare.  But she meets her match when she begins babysitting for a volatile, manipulative eleven-year-old boy.  Soon after Lana takes the job, her close friend Beck mysteriously disappears.  Lana instantly begins fabricating stories - to friends, to police, to herself.  Why doesn't her account jibe with those of eye-witnesses?  Lana will do anything to bury the truth about that night ... and about her life.  But someone else knows her secrets.  And he's dying to tell.

As darkly startling and finely crafted as her blockbuster bestsellers Beautiful Lies and Fragile, Lisa Unger's masterful new psychological thriller has already "set the bar for thrillers to come" (BookReporter) and is "guaranteed to keep the pages turning long past the midnight hour." (BookPage)

Review:

Amazon Guest Review of In the Blood

By Karin Slaughter

Reading In the Blood is like grabbing a live wire. You’re minding your own business, just looking for a good read, then suddenly you’re jolted into a shocking, unputdownable thriller. There’s no way you can let go—the thought of never finding out what happens to these manipulative and terrifying characters is not an option.

The story begins with Lana, a deeply troubled young woman who is a student at a private university in upstate New York. Lana is a psychology major with a knack for working with troubled children. She takes a job as a babysitter for a disturbed young boy named Luke, but it’s not just the experience she craves—there’s something about Luke that unsettles Lana to her core. Maybe it’s because Luke seems to know Lana a little too well. Maybe it’s because she’s a firm believer in keeping your enemies close. Luke is a master manipulator, a budding psychopath who loves playing games. And he seems dangerously close to figuring out Lana’s secrets.

Luke isn’t her only worry. The police have found out that Beck, Lana’s friend, has gone missing. They start asking her questions she can’t answer. Her quiet, academic life turns upside down. The sheltered campus is suddenly against her. Worse, throughout it all Luke wants to play a mysterious and disconcerting game that seems eerily connected to Lana’s troubled past. And the longer she plays, the more the game seems connected to the night that Beck disappeared too. Lana hasn’t told anyone what happened, so why does it feel like the only way to find her friend is to keep playing Luke’s horrific game?

Lisa Unger is a master at creating psychologically damaged characters. Lana is refreshingly original, an engaging yet completely unreliable narrator. We want to trust her, but should we? Luke is equally inscrutable. He has a dangerous side that both horrifies and draws you in. Is Lana playing Luke’s game, or are they both playing the reader? The answer delivers the kind of shock that will leave you stunned long after the last page is turned.

Descripción POCKET BOOKS, United States, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The New York Times bestselling author and International Thriller Writers Best Novel finalist Lisa Unger returns to the dark psychological suspense that made Beautiful Lies a bestseller around the world. Lana Granger lives a life of lies. She has told so many lies about where she comes from and who she is that the truth is like a cloudy nightmare she can t quite recall. About to graduate from college and with her trust fund almost tapped out, she takes a job babysitting a troubled boy named Luke. Expelled from schools all over the country, the manipulative young Luke is accustomed to controlling the people in his life. But, in Lana, he may have met his match. Or has Lana met hers? When Lana s closest friend, Beck, mysteriously disappears, Lana resumes her lying ways--to friends, to the police, to herself. The police have a lot of questions for Lana when the story about her where-abouts the night Beck disappeared doesn t jibe with eyewitness accounts. Lana will do anything to hide the truth, but it might not be enough to keep her ominous secrets buried: someone else knows about Lana s lies. And he s dying to tell. Lisa Unger s writing has been hailed as sensational (Publishers Weekly) and sophisticated (New York Daily News), with gripping narrative and evocative, muscular prose (Associated Press). Masterfully suspenseful, finely crafted, and written with a no-holds-barred raw power, In the Blood is Unger at her best. Nº de ref. de la librería BZV9781476708232
