      “First Lie Wins,” is a gripping rollercoaster of suspense and secrets

      “There’s an old saying: The first lie wins. It’s not referring to the little white kind that tumble out with no thought; it refers to the big one. The one that changes the game. The one that is deliberate. The lie that sets the stage for everything that comes after it. And once the lie is told, it’s what most people believe to be true. The first lie has to be the strongest. The most important. The one that has to be told.”

      Ashley Elston’s latest novel, “First Lie Wins,” is a gripping rollercoaster of suspense and secrets. Clocking in at just over three hundred pages, this fast-paced thriller packs a punch!

      The story kicks off with a bang—a high-stakes heist that sets the tone for the entire book. The plot is intricate, weaving together threads of espionage, betrayal, and unexpected alliances. As the layers peel away, readers are drawn into a world where nothing is as it seems.

      Fans of spy novels and TV shows like “Alias” will find themselves right at home. The protagonist is an expert in disguise slipping effortlessly into separate roles. Her mission? To uncover the truth behind a web of lies that threatens global security. The tension is palpable as she navigates double-crosses and shifting allegiances.

      Elston’s writing keeps readers guessing. Every chapter reveals a new clue or twist, and I was hungry for more. The mysterious organization pulling the strings remains elusive, and the stakes escalate with each revelation. Who can Evie trust? Who’s playing a double game? The suspense is relentless.

      I felt compelled to turn page after page by the relentless pacing. The short chapters add to the urgency, making it impossible to put the book down. I found myself reading late into the night, fuelled by anticipation.

      Elston’s prose is straightforward, allowing the story to shine. There’s no unnecessary fluff—just crisp, efficient writing that propels the plot forward.

      Just when you think you’ve figured it out, Elston throws in a curveball. The plot twists are well-executed, catching even seasoned mystery readers off guard. I won’t spoil anything, but let’s just say that no character is safe from a shocking revelation.

      If you’re craving a heart-racing adventure with a dash of mystery, grab a copy and prepare to be hooked. Elston’s storytelling prowess shines brightly, leaving us hungry for her next literary escapade.

      Thanks to Exclusive Books for the opportunity to read this book. 

      Ashley Elston is the author of several novels, including THE RULES FOR DISAPPEARING (a finalist in the Best Young Adult Novel category of the International Thriller Awards) and 10 BLIND DATES. Her work has been translated into 23 languages. Ashley lives in Louisiana with her husband and three sons. FIRST LIE WINS is her debut adult thriller.
