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.
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.
Lies by T.M. Logan was touted as compelling and twisty, and it certainly delivers. What a wild ride this book is!
It’s a typical Thursday evening for high school English teacher Joe Lynch. He’s just off from work and has his young son, William, in the car. They’re on their way home when William spots his mother’s unique car in traffic. Joe assumes that Mel is off to a meeting with a client, but William wants to surprise his mummy. Joe gives in, and they follow Mel—where Joe witnesses her promptly meeting up with another man.
What follows is a twisty, turny, completely riveting thriller. Joe soon discovers that everything he’s known about his wife and his life has been a complete lie. And he finds himself involved in something he never possibly could have imagined.
I don’t want to say any more for fear of spoiling the story! Suffice it to say that I truly devoured this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you like domestic thrillers that will have you performing mental gymnastics in desperate efforts of figuring out what’s going on, read this now. I highly recommend it and look forward to reading more from this author.
