Psychological Suspense at Its Best! Lie to Me by J.T. Ellison

by Susan Roberts

Lie to Me is a wonderful book that kept me reading on into the night. I had a clue early in the book of the person responsible but was I ever wrong! This book has more twists and turns than you can imagine and just when you get a clue, it turns out to be false and replaced by an even bigger twist to the story. You are going to read comparisons to Gone Girl in many reviews but this book is so much better and more interesting. When you start this book make sure that you can clear your calendar because you won't want to put it down.

Lie To Me
September 2017; MIRA; 978-0778313649;
ebook, audio, print (416 pages); thriller
As the novel begins, Ethan finds a note from his wife that says she's left and not to try to look for her. Ethan is shocked to find that her wallet, laptop, and phone are still in her home office so immediately thinks that someone has abducted her. As he thinks back on their lives together and their love for each other, the reader can tell that he is leaving out crucial information but we don't know what it all has to do with her being gone. Once he calls the police, they immediately decide that he is responsible for his wife's disappearance and possible death. Because Ethan and Sutton are both well known authors, the media arrives on his front door and camps out and the search for Sutton becomes an international story. And when Sutton's friends are interviewed by the police, a totally different story about their lives together emerges. Have their lives been a perfect love story as Ethan would have the world believe or are there secrets that both have kept from the world and from each other?

Read this perfectly done suspense thriller for the answer and be prepared to be kept guessing until almost the end.

This is my first book by JT Ellison and I think it's time to go back and read some of her earlier books. To me, this was psychological suspense at its best!
