The Good Lie by A.R. Torre
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Endlessly surprising and incredibly fun, I absolutely loved this one! Our main characters are Dr. Gwen Moore, a psychiatrist who treats those with violent tendencies, and Robert Kavin, an attorney who’s still grieving the loss of his son to the BH killer. Both are hiding things and both may have answers to solve the serial killings terrorizing their area.
When the serial killer’s latest teenage victim escapes and identifies local high school teacher Randall Thompson as his captor, Robert Kavin steps in and offers to defend him, certain that he is innocent.
As the tension winds tighter, twist after twist will keep your suspicions darting from one person to the next. I loved everything about it, from the storytelling, which is confident and flamboyant, to the many surprising twists, to Dr. Gwen, who has a wry voice and somehow feels both flawed and real. She reminded me a little of Dr. Linda Martin from Lucifer. Five stars all the way from me for this serial killer thriller.
