The Blurb: She was kidnapped not once but twice and now someone wants her dead because of it....
Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn't normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator is to be believed, her life is a lie. Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past, to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother’s past but that of a family claiming she is theirs.
Everyone seems to have a story... but who’s telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets, dating back over thirty years.
My Review: What would you do if you learned that your whole life had been a lie? Who do you trust? Is the story your being told even true? These are the questions that Bailey must face as she enters a journey to discover who she really is. Captured Lies is a very edge of your seat sort of book. It takes you through the loss of who Bailey believed was her mother to discovering that there are a ton of secrets surrounding her very existence. This is a action packed thriller that leaves you wanting to find the answers just as badly as Bailey (the main character of the book). I was totally enthralled with this book and read it as if it were my life that needed to be discovered. Maggie Thom writing style had me setting up and taking notice. I believe I will be reading more of her books. Captured Lies was most definitely my cup of tea and I hope it will be yours as well!
