Lana Granger, a 22-year old psychology student has much to hide. Her tutor sets her up with a job to provide after-school care for an 11-year old bipolar/ADHD sufferer. The two click. Interspersed with their story is a diary of a young mother finding it difficult to cope with her crying baby and her husband in prison. It’s intriguing and then suddenly it gets pretty terrifying. Manipulation, deceit and a surprising twist in both gender and relationships keep you turning the pages at a good rate. It is clever.

Synopsis

In the Blood by Lisa Unger

About to graduate from university in upstate New York, Lana Granger takes a job in town looking after eleven year old Luke. Expelled from schools all over the country, manipulative Luke is accustomed to controlling the people in his life. He likes to play games. But in Lana he may have met his match. Or has Lana met hers? Because Lana is a liar. She has told so many lies about where she comes from and who she is, that even she can't remember the truth. Then Lana's closest friend Beck mysteriously goes missing, and Lana's alibi for the night of the disappearance doesn't match with eyewitness accounts. Now, Lana finds herself lying again - to friends, to the police, to herself. Lana is willing to do almost anything to keep the truth - about her last night with Beck, about everything - from coming out. Even so, it might not be enough to keep her shocking secrets dead and buried. But somebody knows all about Lana's lies. And they are dying to tell. Masterfully suspenseful, finely crafted, and written with a no-holds-barred raw power, In the Blood is Unger at her best.
