Happy Publication Day to Lies, an exciting new thriller from St. Martin’s Press! I read this with a group of fellow bloggers, and we all loved it! Please read on for my take.
Wow, Lies is captivating from the start! Joe happens upon his wife when she is supposed to be at work. He follows her into a hotel where he sees her in an argument with a friend of theirs, Ben.
That argument turns violent when Joe becomes involved, and Ben is knocked out cold. At the same time, Joe and Mel’s son, William, has an asthma attack and needs his father’s help.
Joe returns to the scene to check on Ben, but he has vanished. Who do you think will be blamed?
Joe is a character to love. He is a wonderful father and loving husband, and in a flash, his life falls apart when he is accused of wrongdoing. Lie after lie is batted around, and the author exposes the intrusive nature of technology these days and how the lack of privacy can tear lives apart.
I found Lies an entertaining, addictive, and fresh thriller. The ending was one I never saw coming, and the entire read kept me on the edge of my seat, especially with its current and relevant topics of hacking and overuse of social media. I wished I could read it all in one sitting, especially with the quick chapters and precise writing. Well-played, T.M. Logan! What’s next?
Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for the physical ARC. All opinions are my own.
I read Lies with four of my Book Besties, Melisa, Holly, Berit, and Mack, and it was just the type of delicious thriller I love to read and discuss with my friends. Please check out their amazing reviews:
WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS BASED ON LIES?
When Joe Lynch stumbles across his wife driving into a hotel car park while she’s supposed to be at work, he’s intrigued enough to follow her in.
And when he witnesses her in an angry altercation with family friend Ben, he knows he ought to intervene.
But just as the confrontation between the two men turns violent, and Ben is knocked unconscious, Joe’s young son has an asthma attack – and Joe must flee in order to help him.
When he returns, desperate to make sure Ben is OK, Joe is horrified to find that Ben has disappeared.
And that’s when Joe receives the first message . . .
