Item Details

SOMEONE KNOWS LANA'S SECRET-AND HE'S DYING TO TELL. 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 control-ling 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 "sensa-tional" ( 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.

If, like me, you think you've figured out "in the blood," think again. This book has so many twists and turns and leads you along in so many different paths that it is only when you finally finish the book that you are completely satisfied that all the loose ends have been tied. Lana goes to tutor Luke and thus begins a strange relationship. Is this the cause of all the strange events that ensue? Read the book to find out.

Best I've read from this author. Good storyline and satisfying ending.

I am either missing something or I have higher expectations. I read half the book and could not really stay interested enough to finish.
