Contents:
Years ago, they were childhood sweethearts and best friends. Growing up in the seventies, they had spent their long summer holidays together, bored and unsupervised. But time passed and they grew apart, became adults with families of their own, and began to forget about the past - and the terrible lies they shared... Now, however, the youngest and wildest of the five, Gordon, has died and the others are thrown together for the first time for more than twenty years. Could their long-ago lie be the reason for their troubles today? Is it more dangerous to admit to what they'd done, or is it the strain of keeping the secret that is beginning to wear down on their souls?
