What if you have the perfect life, the perfect wife and the perfect child—then, in one shattering moment, you discover nothing is as it seems? Now you are in the sights of a ruthless killer determined to destroy everything you treasure.
“[T. M. Logan's Lies] is assured, compelling, and hypnotically readable—with a twist I guarantee you won’t see coming.” —Lee Child
It’s the evening drive home from work on a route Joe Lynch has taken a hundred times with his young son. But today, Joe sees his wife meet another man—an encounter that will rip two families apart. Raising the question: Can we ever really trust those closest to us?
Joe will do whatever it takes to protect his family, but as the deception unravels, so does his life. A life played out without any rules. And a cunning opponent who’s always one step ahead.
In the tradition of The Girl Before by J. P. Delaney and Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris, T. M. Logan’s Lies is an unputdownable thriller that will keep readers guessing until the jaw-dropping finale.
When you have a title like Lies, you know from the start to not believe what is being told by the people/characters involved. But to try and read between the lines from whose are apart of the story.
Joe and his son Will, travel the same routes each and every day. But when the son see his Mums car, they decide to follow her and surprise her. But Joe is the one being surprised. His wife Mel, is not going to the place he thought she was going that time of day. He watches a confrontation between Mel and their friend Ben and it was heated conversation they were having. Of course, Joes mind going wild with so many ideas that might be why the two were arguing. And this is where lies start being told and piling up.
Questions are raised and asked. Lies are told. It’s up to Joe to piece them all together with all that happened that day is still going on. What was going on with Mel and Ben? Was it just work stuff? When Ben goes missing even more questions come to mind. Does it have anything to do with that day? So many questions and so many half truths being told, it was hard to tell who was telling the truth.
I have to admit, when I first started reading this I was a little worried. It started out a little too slow for me and I just despised Mel from the start. I did however want to root for Joe to pieces everything together. Now Beth who happens to be Ben’s wife, I just felt awful for her with his disappreance. She needed her friends and their help to get through all. It did end up being a cast of characters you don’t whether hate or root for though with the events that were taking place. The suspense built and built as the story progressed and the pace picked up immensely and I didn’t want to put it down.
With the questionable characters, the mounting lies, the suspense was fantastic all the way the way up until the end. The big twist that was revealed shocked me, I had it all wrong and I certainly didn’t see if coming. Being stumped with this type of read for me is a bonus. This is one amazing thriller and I think fans of the genre will devour it.
