Description-

  • From the New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline, a novel of suspense and emotional justice.
    On paper, Chris Brennan looks perfect. He's applying for a job as a high school government teacher, he's ready to step in as an assistant baseball coach, and his references are impeccable.
    But everything about Chris Brennan is a lie.
    Susan Sematov is proud of her son Raz, a high school pitcher so athletically talented that he's being recruited for a full-ride scholarship to a Division I college, with a future in major-league baseball. But Raz's father died only a few months ago, leaving her son in a vulnerable place where any new father figure might influence him for good, or evil.
    Heather Larkin is a struggling single mother who lives for her son Justin's baseball games. But Justin is shy, and Heather fears he is being lured down a dark path by one of his teammates, a young man from an affluent family whose fun-loving manner might possibly conceal his violent plans.
    Mindy Kostis succumbs to the pressure of being a surgeon's wife by filling her days with social events and too many gin and tonics. But she doesn't know that her husband and her son, Evan, are keeping secrets from her – secrets that might destroy all of them.
    At the center of all of them is Chris Brennan. Why is he there? What does he want? And what is he willing to do to get it?
    Enthralling and suspenseful, Lisa Scottoline's One Perfect Lie is an emotional thriller and a suburban crime story that will have listeners riveted up to the shocking end, with killer twists and characters you won't soon forget.
    "Scottoline keeps the pace relentless as she drops a looming threat into the heart of an idyllic suburban community, causing readers to hold their breath in anticipation." –Booklist
    "Readers can be assured that the author nails the high school milieu, from athletic rivalries to sexting...they're in for one thrilling ride." –Kirkus Reviews

  • Publisher's Weekly

    February 6, 2017
    ATF agent Curt Abbott goes undercover as high school baseball coach Chris Brennan in this entertaining thriller from bestseller Scottoline (Most Wanted). He targets three teenage boys in his investigation of a domestic terrorism plot: wealthy, spoiled Evan Kostis; troubled Raz Sematov, struggling to cope with
    his father’s recent death; and thoughtful, diligent Jordan Larkin, raised by a single mother. As his supervisors threaten to derail the case, loner Curt wonders whether he could have a future with Jordan’s mom, Heather, for whom he has unexpectedly developed feelings, if she knew his true identity. Scottoline shifts focus among Curt and each of the boys’ mothers, who represent a cross-section of suburban Central Valley, Pa. This fast-paced read culminates in a daring chase that would play well on the big screen, and readers may anticipate the outcome of Curt’s
    budding romance with Heather as eagerly as they do the resolution of the terror plot. 400,000-copy announced first printing; author tour. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group.

  • AudioFile Magazine Scottoline is at her best with this thriller about ATF agent Curt Abbott, and George Newbern is the guy to convince listeners of one thing when quite another is actually going on. Newly hired high school teacher of government studies Chris Brennan has the perfect credentials. His references are beyond reproach, and, if needed, he can even coach baseball. What could be better? Newbern sets the scene so deftly that when the truth is revealed, listeners will discover they were completely taken in. Abbott's ATF investigation is focused on a possible domestic terrorism plot and on three boys: Evan Kostis, a kid with every advantage; Raz Sematov, who is troubled by his father's recent death; and Jordan Larkin, a quiet, dependable teen. Newbern makes this thrill-a-minute ride worth taking. S.J.H. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
