The First to Lie
For those who do not know, author Hank Phillippi Ryan has won many awards for both her novels and her investigative reporting (37 Emmys!) in Boston. All these skills are on display in The First to Lie as the characters investigate and attempt to uncover the truth about a pharmaceutical company touting a drug that can allegedly help women with fertility issues. They discover that not only has the drug not been approved for this purpose, but the company is also employing underhand and deceptive tactics as they push the drug onto women desperate to have a child.
While The First to Lie is a multilayered mystery full of twists and turns, readers may find that it starts off a bit slow, but as the story continues, readers will be drawn in. The First to Lie has elements of betrayal, smart women with an agenda, and an interesting plot that touches on ethics and morality. Best to go into this one blind because there are some entertaining surprises in store for the reader. Pick this book up if you’re looking for an intelligent and tightly written story.
