The Good Lie

We rated this book:


Psychiatrist Dr. Gwen Moore specializes in people with violent tendencies. Defense attorney Robert Kavin’s son was the last victim to be killed by the Bloody Heart serial killer. His most recent victim escaped and named a local high school teacher as his captor. Robert is convinced that the teacher is innocent and so enlists Gwen to build a profile to help clear his name. As Robert and Gwen’s relationship develops, they both realize that each is hiding secrets. The Good Lie is what Robert and Gwen have told themselves to relieve their guilt, although eventually all lies will be found out and it might be discovered that the lies were not so good after all.

Profiling is a huge interest of mine, so I immediately jumped at the chance to read this book. At first, it was great and starting to go somewhere, but then it did a one-eighty and made no sense after that. Things fell apart and the author missed a huge opportunity to explain what was happening in a satisfactory way. If you need something to do, then go ahead and read this book. I wouldn’t recommend it to those who enjoy psychological thrillers though.
