Beautiful Lies - Ridley Jones, Bk 1

I highly recommend this book. The writer really captures your attention from page 1. It has many twists and turns that you don't see coming. I felt like I was inside Ridley's head.After you read this you have to get the sequel "Sliver of Truth. It answers many of the questions that you find unanswered in the first book.

I could not put this one down. From the first paragraph I was hooked.

"It's dark in that awful way that allows you to make out objects but not the black spaces between them. My breathing comes ragged from emotion and fear. The only person I trust in the world lies on the floor beside me. I lean into him and hear that he's still breathing, but it's shallow and hard won. He's hurt, I know. But I can't see how badly. I whisper his name in his ear but he doesn't respond. I feel his body but there is no blood that I can tell. The sound of his body hitting the floor minutes before was the worst sound I've ever heard."

I really love the writer's conversational style. Although she is telling you the story, every once and awhile she comments directly to the reader; very engaging.

I liked it so much as soon as I finished it I went looking for the sequel "Sliver of Truth". I couldn't wait for it on to come available on Paperbackswap.com, so I bought it at Borders! Highly recommend it.

Great read.

I love the way Lisa Unger writes. She has great character development and enough twists and turns to make you keep reading. I think this book plot would make a great movie.

Great suspense. Be sure to read the second in the series, "Sliver of Lies". It will clear up some unanswered questions.

Great book!! I started reading it and couldn't put it down.
It was suspenseful and at times predictable but at other times kept you guessing. What I liked most is that it was a fast paced read.
