My dad’s military, and of Greek descent. He was the one who saddled me with Constantine. No American kid should have more than two syllables in their name. It’s an open invitation to be a target.
Lie To Me was a tantalizing, enthralling, and ingeniously crafted read, I was quickly yanked into a story that wouldn’t let me go, regardless that all the while I couldn’t get a firm grip on the who, where, what, why, or how. The story starts with a body, hidden in plain sight, and in the process of decay. I couldn’t get a handle on whose version of the details was closest to the truth or was even partially trustworthy, who had been killed, how the murder had been committed, why a woman had really left her husband and where did she go? I just knew that a woman was missing and a body was waiting to be found. The characters were mesmerizing, devious, deeply flawed, compelling, and dastardly… or were they? J.T. Ellison is an evil genius and masterfully scribbled an engrossing storyline heaving with a cleverly conniving and alluring cast of characters. More, please!
