I love to read and I blog about it.

Dark Lie

Dark Lie - Nancy Springer Dark Lie is a quick read mixing elements of mystery, psychological suspense, and religious fanaticism. Springer's narrative seamlessly alternates through Dorrie's past and present while including the perspective of her husband Sam, and Sissy Chappell, a young black police woman and handwriting expert, who is the only one realizing just how much trouble Dorrie and her daughter are facing. The horror of Dorrie's story is a convincing one in Springer's capable hands, and the result a startling page-turner. Recommended.
