“Although their eventual fate remains a mystery, I’m certain that what happened to those girls is all my fault.”
It’s been fifteen long, remorseful years since the summer Emma Davis spent in the Camp Nightingale. The summer that changed her life. Everything came crashing down when Emma witnessed her three friends Alisson, Natalie, and Vivian leave their cabin and never return. Ever since that summer, Emma paints massive canvases where she hides the missing girls behind dark leaves and gnarled branches of the woods that surround Camp Nightingale. One question remains unanswered, why Emma hides her friends? Is it grief or guilt?
Emma’s paintings catch the attention of Harris-White family, that owns Camp Nightingale which has been closed since the fatal summer, fifteen years ago. The family decides to reopen the camp, and Emma receives an invitation to spent the summer there as a painter instructor. She accepts an invite in hopes to find closure. However, Emma is not the only one who returns to Camp Nightingale hunted by their past, someone is here to get their revenge.
“The Last Time I Lied” is a dark, twisty and spine-chilling physicological thriller, with a bewildering ending. Amazing set of great characters, followed by a startling plot that contains secrets and vengeance.
