Sexy and fast-paced,
Beautiful Lies is a true literary thriller featuring one of the freshest new voices in years. Lisa Unger takes us on a breathtaking ride in which every choice Ridley makes creates a whirlwind of consequences that are impossible to imagine...
What if your family was a lie?
What if your name was a lie?
What if your whole life was just a pack of Beautiful Lies?
If Ridley Jones had slept 10 minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the lie she used to call her perfect life. Instead, she's in the wrong place at the right time to unleash a chain of events that begins with a mysterious package on her doorstep. A package that informs her that her entire world is just an illusion. Forced to question everything she knows about herself, Ridley wanders into dark territory, where everyone is hiding something.
"Unger takes readers on a pulse-pounding ride through the Big Apple in this outstanding debut that will please both pace-obsessed thriller fans and those who want to savour the more subtle aspects of character development." (

A Captivating collection of twists and turns
Yes. I think if I listened again I would discover different elements and aspects that I missed the first time. It's a complex story with interesting relationships and characters.
The way it unfolds from a normal everyday life into a story with drama, twists and intrigue.
The central character, Ridley.
The book concluded nicely and I felt the hope of a happy ending
