Marisa Stockton's twin sister Clare was murdered fourteen years ago.  She was sixteen and the murderer was never found.  Marisa is now thirty years old and trying to stay sober.  She can't put the past aside and she is determined to uncover who the murderer is. The problem is that the murderer is closer than she knows.  Can she do it and stay alive?

This psychological thriller is a dark story that tells the story of a troubled family whose friends are just as troubled. Alternating between the past and the present, tension prevails throughout the narrative.  Expertly plotted and with no shortage of suspects, the story moves quickly.  Every page brings surprises and unanswered questions.  Secrets are revealed, and as Marisa gets closer to the truth, the more danger she faces. The lies told in the past come to the surface as the story races to its conclusion.

THE LIES I TOLD is a well-written and fascinating psychological thriller. Highly recommended.

SUMMARY

For a woman obsessed and a killer in her shadow, remembering the past becomes a mind game in a novel of psychological suspense by New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton.

Twin sisters Marisa and Clare Stockton were sixteen when Clare’s body was found in Virginia’s James River. No arrests were made. Fourteen years later, Marisa’s friends and dedicated career as a photographer help her to cope with the open wound of the past. But Marisa still feels the hurt—and the unsolved murder isn’t the only thing haunting her.

A recent car crash has erased ten days of Marisa’s memories—a black hole leading up to the accident that’s left her disoriented. Every text and phone call from that crucial missing time has vanished, along with her phone. A photograph she took of the river has disappeared. A new neighbor Marisa believes she knows introduces himself as if he were a stranger. And there’s the growing fear that her near-fatal accident was no accident at all. As dreams of Clare and nightmares of the crash begin to converge, so do two disturbing puzzles fourteen years apart.

Putting the pieces together could be fatal. As she struggles to remember everything, Marisa closes in on a killer—without realizing that he’s already closed in on her.
