*Review* Lies by T.M. Logan

Genre: Thriller/Mystery
Published: September 11, 2018
Pages: 432

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 . . .

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This book hooked me pretty much from the beginning because I needed to know what happened to Ben after Joe leaves him in the parking garage. I mean, people don't usually just disappear without a trace, so something was obviously up. But then the text messages started, and I was anxious to see what the end goal was and if it would come to fruition. 

All that being said, I couldn't help but feel like Joe was just being so stupid for pretty much the entire story. It was pretty obvious that he was being setup, but he'd take the bait anyway. Really, he was just way too naive and trusting for his own good. 

I'm typically pretty good at figuring out where a story is going before the big reveal, but was pleasantly surprised when I didn't see the twist in this book coming. It's always nice when a book can surprise you. 

Overall I give Lies 4.1865 stars. - Katie
