Summary
A handsome stranger moves to the small Pennsylvania town of Central Valley, and his name is Chris Brennan. He's applying for a job as a teacher and varsity baseball coach at the local high school, and he looks perfect, on paper. But his name is an alias, his resume is false, and everything about him is a lie. And he has a secret plan - for which he needs a pawn on the baseball team. Susan Sematov loves her younger son Raz, the quirky and free-spirited pitcher of the team. But Raz's adored father died only a few months ago, and the family is grief-stricken. Secretly, Raz is looking to fill the Daddy-shaped hole in his heart. Heather Larkin is a struggling single mother who's dedicated to her only son Justin, the quiet rookie on the team. But Justin's shy and reserved nature renders him vulnerable to attention, including that of a new father-figure. Mindy Kostis is the wife of a busy surgeon and the queen bee of the baseball boosters, where her super-popular son Evan is the star catcher. But she doesn't realise that Evan's sense of entitlement is becoming a full-blown case of affluenza, and after he gets his new BMW, it's impossible to know where he's going or whom he's spending time with. The lives of these families revolve around the baseball team and Chris Brennan. What does he really want? How far will he go to get it? Who among them will survive the lethal jeopardy threatening them, from the shadows? Enthralling and suspenseful, One Perfect Lie is an emotional thriller and a suburban crime story that will keep readers riveted to the shocking end, with killer twists and characters you won't soon forget
Summary
One Perfect Lie is an emotional thriller and a suburban crime story that will keep you guessing until you turn the very last page. On the surface, it tells the tale of the struggling single mother of a high-school pitcher, a shy kid 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 the mother fears that she’s losing her grip on her son because he’s being lured down a darker path by one of his teammates, a secretly disturbed young man from an affluent family, whose excellent grades and fun-loving manner conceal his violent criminal plans
