Official synopsis

A master of international intrigue, New York Times bestselling author Taylor Stevens introduces a pair of wild cards into the global spy game--a brother and sister who were raised to deceive--and trained to kill . . .

They live in the shadows, Jack and Jill, feuding twins who can never stop running. From earliest memory they've been taught to hide, to hunt, to survive. Their prowess is outdone only by Clare, who has always been mentor first and mother second. She trained them in the art of espionage, tested their skills in weaponry, surveillance, and sabotage, and sharpened their minds with nerve-wracking psychological games. As they grew older they came to question her motives, her methods--and her sanity . . .

Now twenty-six years old, the twins are trying to lead normal lives. But when Clare's off-the-grid safehouse explodes and she goes missing, they're forced to believe the unthinkable: Their mother's paranoid delusions have been real all along. To find her, they'll need to set aside their differences; to survive, they'll have to draw on every skill she's trained them to use. A twisted trail leads from the CIA, to the KGB, to an underground network of global assassins where hunters become the hunted. Everyone, it seems, wants them dead--and, for one of the twins, it's a threat that's frighteningly familiar and dangerously close to home . . .

Filled with explosive action, suspense, and powerful human drama, Liars' Paradox is world-class intrigue at its finest.


Review

A thriller about assassins and bounties and spies….what’s not to like? This book contained a lot of action but didn’t have a lot going on in regards to plot and character development. From the start to finish, it felt like one long movie scene action sequence that just followed a linear path to the end. Surprisingly, halfway through this I was slightly bored with it, despite all of the non-stop fighting and action. I feel like it lacked heart and was filled with filler, but there were parts of it that I did enjoy. The last 50 pages of the book were more promising and actually made me eager to read the next book in the series.

I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
