WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS BASED ON LIES?
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 . . .

The concept of Lies is something that has been done before. It’s a game of what ifs. What if Joe didn’t see his wife at that moment? What if he didn’t follow her to a hotel? What if he didn’t see the argument between his wife and Ben (a family friend)? What if he didn’t confront Ben? What if? What if? What if?
I did find that I wasn’t able to put down Lies. I wanted to know what the different lies were and what was really the truth. Yes, there was definitely some parts that didn’t add up to me and Joe was just clueless. It’s rare that a main character doesn’t have any idea what is going on and just accepts what they are told.
3 calculators out of a potential 5. I enjoyed the novel, but not sure if this is a novel that I will remember in a few weeks.
