Review: State of Lies
One woman is forced to question everything she knows in this domestic suspense novel from award-winning author Siri Mitchell.
Georgie Brennan may be a world-class quantum physicist, but she grapples with life as a single mother after her husband is killed. When she receives a message from beyond the grave, it leads her to question the details of her husband’s death.
As she follows the clues he left behind, her discoveries increasingly implicate those closest to her. When her father is nominated as the new United States Secretary of Defense, she must uncover the truth before his confirmation hearing—even as the same people who killed her husband are now after her. Nothing is at is seems. Lies are truth; enemies are friends. Even her child is at risk. As every possibility but one disappears, Georgie may find herself to be the antithesis of everything she’s thought herself to be.
I’m usually not a big fan of political thrillers but State of Lies had me hooked. With a compelling plot and endless twists and turns, it kept me intrigued enough to read it in one sitting. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
We're immediately introduced to Georgia Ann Brennan, a quantum physicist, raised in a good-old southern military family and her husband Sean, a former military man himself. One night, Sean leaves home to run a quick household errand but was tragically killed in a hit-and-run accident, leaving behind his grieving wife and son. Eight months later, a mysterious series of events have Georgie questioning if she really knew her late husband, her neighbors, and even her family.
This novel was full of suspense, conspiracy and trust issues - all good things in a political thriller.
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
