內容簡介


一個建立在謊言上的家庭,你可以信任哪一個?

「立體的人物描寫,緊湊的情節,不同氛圍的場景,好像讀者與作者僅一步之遙,實在很難將這本書放下。」
--My Weekly雜誌

Audrey Bailey年輕時失去了父母,為了遠離悲傷,她從英國來到了熱氣蒸騰的孟買,原本計劃的6個月旅行,在遇上迷人的Ralph Templeton後,整個計畫改變了。她嫁給了Ralph,在印度有了新工作,生了雙胞胎兒女Lexi 與John。她愛印度的顏色、食物、人與花香,卻因為Ralph的關係,不得不回到她已不再熟悉、沒有朋友的英國。

當Audrey年近70,感到加諸在兒女身上的負擔越來越重時,她決定來一趟參觀希臘諸島的郵輪之旅,來歡慶她的70歲生日,並且要Lexi 與John陪同。Audrey在郵輪的生日宴會上公開宣布,她所有的財產由兒女繼承,之後她便失蹤了。Lexi與John對於母親的死看上去非常難過,然而真的如人們所看到的那樣嗎?這對姊弟獲得了他們急需的大筆財富,也開始不信任對方,故事就在現在與過去的線索中遊走,然後慢慢清楚地揭開Audrey的一生其實建立在一個謊言之上…。


In a family built on lies, who can you trust?
Audrey Bailey will never forget the moment she met Ralph Templeton in the sweltering heat of a Bombay café. Her lonely life over, she was soon married with two small children. But things in the Templeton household were never quite what they seemed.

Now approaching 70, and increasingly a burden on the children she’s never felt close to, Audrey plans a once-in-a-lifetime cruise around the Greek isles. Forcing twins Lexi and John along for the ride, the Templetons set sail as a party of three – but only two will return.

On the night of her birthday, Audrey goes missing…hours after she breaks the news that the twins stand to inherit a fortune after her death. As the search of the ship widens, so does the list of suspects – and with dark clues emerging about Audrey’s early life, the twins begin to question if they can even trust one another…
