Epic Sequel to Proof of Lies
After saving Keira, Anastasia finds herself unable to sit still. She feels like she's constantly having to keep one eye glancing back over her shoulder and that Department D is out to get her. For that reason, her instinct is to go into hiding, but all of that changes when a message is sent to her via the death of an old high-school friend.
With the help of Allen Cross and her friends, she realizes that Department D needs to come down. The only problem: she doesn't trust anyone. The lines start blurring for Anastasia and she finds her walls closing in as distrust forms for her friends. Anastasia can trust nobody but herself, but that isn't the way to bring down a corrupt place like Department D. Toss in the fact that her parents are most likely alive and Anastasia feels even more wary since her whole life has been a lie.
This was a thrilling sequel to PROOF OF LIES and I drank it up, page by page. I was so happy to have received an ARC since PROOF OF LIES was so good. I loved the mystery and The Godfather-like feel LIES THAT BIND presents and am enthralled by Diana Rodriguez Wallach's riveting writing.
Final Verdict: This was such an epic sequel to PROOF OF LIES and I would recommend it to fans of mystery, thrillers, The Godfather, and romance. This story is also about placing your feet back on the ground even though it feels like it's been ripped out from underneath you.
