Siri Mitchell: State of Lies

By Kelly Bridgewater

The secrets of those closet to us can be the most dangerous of all.

Months after her husband, Sean, is killed by a hit-and-run driver, physicist Georgie Brennan discovers he lied to her about where he had been going that day. A cryptic notebook, a missing computer, and strange noises under her house soon have her questioning everything she thought she knew.

With her job hanging by a thread, her son struggling to cope with his father’s death, and her four-star general father up for confirmation as the next Secretary of Defense, Georgie quickly finds herself tangled in a political intrigue that has no clear agenda and dozens of likely villains. Only one thing is clear: someone wants her dead too.

The more she digs for the truth, the fewer people she can trust.

Not her friends.

Not her parents.

Maybe not even herself.

My Thoughts:

Suspense is a wonderful genre to read in. I haven't read any of Siri Mitchell's historical fiction, but she started to write a suspense novel, and the synopsis sounded awesome, so I couldn't wait to read it. The story starts out pretty just like a suspense novel with a high tension moment setting the rest of the action for the story. Then about 42 percent into the novel, the plot turned toward a little different direction. I did have a hard time putting the novel down. I wanted to see what would happen to Glorie as she tried to figure out with her father when he was in Iraq and with Sean. The ending did take a turn I didn't see coming, so I was surprised that Mitchell went that way. I didn't see it coming that way. The writing was good. I could see the characters and the setting as they played across my imagination. Overall, State of Lies by Siri Mitchell is a captivating written suspense with plenty of action and an unique storyline. It was a wonderful story to pass a couple of hours.

I received a complimentary copy of State of Lies by Siri Mitchell from Thomas Nelson Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
