Overview

Coming July 29, 2014, the new novel from Liane Moriarty, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Husband’s Secret

“What a wonderful writer—smart, wise, funny.” —Anne Lamott

Pirriwee Public’s annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. 
 
In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times–bestselling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.  And in her pitch-perfect way, she shows us the truth about what really goes on behind closed suburban doors.
