The Good Lie by A.R. Torre ~ Book Review


Alessandra Torre has released a new suspense novel!

Six teens murdered. A suspect behind bars. A desperate father. In a case this shadowy, the truth is easy to hide.

Psychiatrist Dr. Gwen Moore is an expert on killers. She’s spent a decade treating California’s most depraved predators and unlocking their motives—predators much like the notorious Bloody Heart serial killer, whose latest teenage victim escaped and then identified local high school teacher Randall Thompson as his captor. The case against Thompson as the Bloody Heart Killer is damning—and closed, as far as Gwen and the media are concerned. If not for one new development…

Defense attorney Robert Kavin is a still-traumatized father whose own son fell prey to the BH Killer. Convinced of Thompson’s innocence, he steps in to represent him. Now Robert wants Gwen to interview the accused, create a psych profile of the killer and his victims, and help clear his client’s name.

As Gwen and Robert grow closer and she dives deeper into the investigation, grave questions arise. So does Gwen’s suspicion that Robert is hiding something—and that he might not be the only one with a secret.

This book is so different from anything I have read by the author before. Serial Killer, know as the BH Killer, has abducted 7 boys and murdered 6 of them. The seventh one has escaped and tells the cops who was holding him captive...a high school teacher Randall Thompson.

This story weaves back and forth through Psychiatrist Dr. Gwen Moore meetings with her patients that have violent tendencies to meeting with Scott Harden the latest victim that escaped the BH Killers clutches. Who is the killer, what motivated him to torture these young men for weeks before killing them, and why did he dispose of their bodies so brutally? All these questions and more are answered in the compelling read.

If you enjoy Mystery Suspense, Books that are dark and will have you at the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next, then this book is for you. I would also recommend listening to the audiobook because Susan Dalian did a fabulous job bringing this story to life.

Happy Reading!!!
