Book Review for THE LIAR'S ROOM by Simon Lelic
THE LIAR'S ROOM by Simon Lelic
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A taut, suspenseful, and emotional story which brings together the mind games of a psychological thriller with the edge of your seat tension of a kidnapping.
From the minute I started THE LIAR'S ROOM, I was hooked. Lelic didn’t waste any time jumping into the dark and twisty tale of a woman with more to hide than her patients, a boy who is looking for answers, and the daughter who falls victim to the situation.
What I truly enjoyed about this book was the human element of the book. There was emotion, how the public deals with the perceptions of crimes, and an underlining commentary on how complicated relationships are. With every page that went by, I was struck by the examination of humanity through the veil of a mystery and several crimes. It poses the question of what makes a child act the way they do as well as who should truly be responsible for those actions.
If you are looking for domestic psychological suspense, look no further than Lelic’s newest release. So good!
