Thank you @putnambooks and @netgalley for the digital review copy! 

I loved David Ellis’s previous book Look Closer. I was really excited to read this one.

The Best Lies has a complex plot with lots of characters and moving parts to keep track of. The timeline also shifts between past and present and there are multiple points of view. The bare bones story is Leo, a lawyer with questionable ethics, gets caught up in an FBI sting operation. He has a choice between testifying against a viscous monster or going to jail for murder. Leo’s character was a little too smarmy for my taste. He’s like the smartest kid in the class who knows it and likes to show it off. 

The first half of the story felt like a lot of loose threads, but they eventually all come together. The twists and turns are plentiful and will keep readers guessing. I found this to be an entertaining and engaging read. The Best Lies publishes July 23. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

Let’s play predictive text: The biggest lie I ever told ________. 

The biggest lie I ever told was that I was going to be a millionaire. 😀 Too bad that was a lie!
