The First to Lie by Hank Phillippi Ryan

An enticingly intricate tale of revenge


A pharmaceutical company promises to help women experiencing infertility. But what happens with their pills have the opposite effect from the one that is promised? Read The First to Lie to find out what happens when these women seek revenge.

My thoughts/feelings:

As always when I review thrillers, I try to leave things as vague as possible. Thrillers are best experienced when the twists and turns are left spoiler free.

I was completely enthralled by this twisted and suspenseful story about infertility, pharmaceutical scandal, identity and revenge. I had so much fun trying to untangle the intricate web of lies. I really enjoyed thinking about all the deep topics that this book brings up and am eager to discuss them with fellow readers.

This is a book that I will recommend time and again!
