One Perfect Lie
Readers will find themselves racing to keep up with the action in One Perfect Lie. Just when you think it’s clear where it’s going, the plot will twist again.
Lisa Scottoline has created another highly entertaining story that compels reading to the finish. The new coach at Central Valley High School isn’t at all who he appears to be. But then, as it turns out, neither are some of the long-time residents of Central Valley. As each family is introduced, it becomes obvious that someone is up to no good–maybe more than one someone. When one of the students unwittingly becomes part of a criminal conspiracy, the story picks up speed, and the suspense doesn’t let up until the conclusion.
Scottoline is a pro who can tell an action-packed story without grizzly violence, obscenity, or overuse of vulgar language. In fact, One Perfect Lie could be enjoyed by a wide variety of readers. While the priority of the book is to entertain, it manages to highlight issues related to the adolescent years and the importance of adult family members being present for their kids.
