I had been in reading slump for a month or so, not finding a book that would grab me and keep me interested. All the Beautiful Lies is the one that yanked me out of my slump and gave me whiplash with all of its twist and turns, intensifying with each chapter.
The story starts in the present, but alternates with another character’s story told in the past. When the two stories connect after intricately unfolding, my jaw hit the floor. It wasn’t what I was expecting. But author Peter Swanson is never predictable, is he?
I have read his previous books, The Kind Worth Killing and Her Every Fear. I feel that this new title is closer to The Kind Worth Killing in the way it unfolds and how some of the characters develop. How does he come up with people that are so vile and horrible?
I highly recommend All the Beautiful Lies for anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers. Also, it is a standalone title, so if you haven’t read anything by the author, it’s okay. However, if you’re waiting on the holds list, you can make use of the time by reading his other titles. - Rosanna (Administration)
