Three Truths and a Lie Delivers Mystery And More
I like mystery. The allure to secrets and deception have always drawn me in. Recently, I was sent Brent Hartinger‘s upcoming psychological thriller, Three Truths and a Lie, and can I just say…holy fucking shit, holy fucking shit! I was not prepared for what I read. Just when I assumed who the culprit was, Brent blindsided me with something new — which is what a good author should do. I enjoyed that rush of adrenaline of reading about four friends in a cabin in the woods in the middle of a temperate rainforest.
Brent Hartinger has delivered an intense thriller with mysteries afoot. Your sleuthing skills are put to test with the flick of every page. With the setting taking place on the outskirts of a downtrodden town, in a neglected cabin where the scenery is far from pleasant, Three Truths turns a friendly game with four friends to a deadly weekend where survival is not guaranteed. After finishing (and re-reading it once more), I couldn’t help but realize how much I missed the first time. While I initially believed I was heading down the right path, I couldn’t be farther from it.
If you’re looking to read this year’s best mystery, look no further. Three Truths and a Lie is out next week (August 2) and I promise it will bewilder you. If that’s not enough to convince you, consider it a challenge to discover the book’s secrets. Below are four statements — one is a lie and it’s up to readers to discover it.
Truth #1: Rob is thrilled about the weekend trip. It’s the perfect time for him to break out of his shell…to be the person he really, really wants to be.
Truth #2: Liam, Rob’s boyfriend, is nothing short of perfect. He’s everything Rob could have wanted. They’re perfect together. Perfect.
Truth #3: Mia has been Liam’s best friend for years…long before Rob came along. They get each other in a way Rob could never, will never, understand.
Truth #4: Galen, Mia’s boyfriend, is sweet, handsome, and incredibly charming. He’s the definition of a Golden Boy…even with the secrets up his sleeve.
