Set in the upscale DC private school scene, where silence can easily be bought, Aggie Blum Thompson's All the Dirty Secrets asks how far you would go to protect your status and your family, and if some secrets should ever be revealed.

One warm summer night twenty-five years ago, Liza Gold and her friends celebrated their high school graduation with a party on the beach. It should have been the best night of their lives, only one of them never came back out of the ocean.

The tragedy haunted Liza Gold for years. Now, she's a recently divorced working mom struggling to connect with her standoffish teenager daughter Zoe when history repeats itself. Another young woman has drowned at Beach Week, and this time the victim is Zoe's secret best friend.

Liza begins to suspect that the two deaths are somehow related, which causes her to face hard truths and take an unflinching look at the people she's called her closest friends for the past two decades. She must discover what really happened to both women before it's too late.

A Macmillan Audio production from Forge Books.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly


The death of a student from Washington Prep, a swank D.C. private school, during Beach Week on the Delaware shore eerily echoes that of another promising student from the same institution 28 years earlier, as no one is more painfully aware than Liza Gold, the protagonist of this dark, overly coincidence-dependent domestic thriller from Thompson (I Don’t Forgive You). Back then, Liza’s close friend and classmate Nikki Montes disappeared from the beach and was presumed drowned; now with the divorced Liza editing Wash Prep’s alumni magazine so that she can afford to send her troubled 16-year-old daughter, Zoe, there, it’s Zoe—supposedly back in D.C. with her dad—who makes the alarming discovery of the current victim’s body. As Liza delves into the tragedy’s possible connection with what happened to Nikki, she starts to suspect that she might be dangerously clueless about the true nature of some of her lifelong friends. Thompson disconcertingly mixes affecting, believable characters like Liza and Zoe with caricatures in a twisty tale of friendship and betrayal that amply deserves its cautionary warning about disturbing content, including sexual assault and death by suicide. Despite the seaside setting, this is anything but a beach book. (July)
