"Well-crafted characters combine with a complex, riveting plot to create a mystery-thriller with a distinctly human voice."
"Deadly Lies is one hell of a thriller that cleverly weaves together a clandestine affair, secret meetings, and cybersex crime. With every riveting twist and turn in the story, the intensity and suspense mounts until the climax ending that will leave you completely spent."
~Jersey Girl Book Reviews
One of the most fantastic books I've read. From the beginning to the end the story just got better and better. The excitement and intensity continued until the unbelievably unexpected and mind blowing conclusion. This is a definite must read book. I gave it five stars but it deserved twenty.
"The skilfully-plotted narrative clips along at a fast pace, with as many twists and turns as the Monte Carlo Grand Prix....Reader, beware, you will be turning pages into the wee hours."
"I absolutely loved this book and I think I may have found a new favorite author... I look forward to reading other novels by Chris Patchell."
The story grabs you from the beginning and holds on tight through the wild ride ending...keeps you guessing as to what will happen next."
"The extraordinary characters and constant twisting plots kept me totally captivated. Excellent work that mesmerized my imagination throughout the entire adventure."
"Impossible to put down once you start. Full of twist and turns that has you sucked in"
"This was a twisting, breath holding, make you gasp out loud read. I had hard time putting it down and am looking forward to the next Chris Patchell book!!"
"What can I say? I loved this book right from the Prologue!...a book that Patterson should read and take some hints and notes from"

There's obviously more of the story coming. I won't read it because I don't care what happens to anyone who survived. If the next book is anything like the first, more people will die as unsavory and mentally-ill characters work their evil or fall victim to it. Meh.
Maybe there'll be redemption or some blue sky in a future installment. Since there wasn't any in this book, I'll pass.
With less than 20% of the book left, Alex and Jill's stories intersected a lot more. I didn't find it very believable that Alex suddenly has a lightbulb moment about what had been happening. The ending has a twist (of course) and it was interesting enough for me to want to read the next book and see what happens next.
Despite the fact that one of the main characters was a sociopath who got away with 4 murders, I really enjoyed this novel. Although the men Jill murdered were disgusting individuals, killing them is not how to deal with her exploitation. After Peter Young drugged and raped Jill, then put the video on the web, her mind snapped. The rape brought out all the horrors of her childhood in the hands of her stepfather. She turned to the dark side; even her dog was wary of her, sensing something frightening in her. She derived great pleasure in killing the men who exploited her and other unsuspecting woman. She began leading a secret life——successful business woman during her work hours, vigilante crusader after hours. In the end, the only man who knew her secret was shot dead. Jill gets away free from prosecution with none the wiser. If you think of it, Alex dying was the only way the novel could have gone. Had he lived, he would have arrested his wife, and she would have ended up imprisoned for the remainder of her life.
I’m curious to read the next book in this series. What will happen to Jill next? Will she continue killing exploitative men and getting away with it?
I’ve read a few of Ms. Patchell’s novels and have enjoyed them all.

She lies and lies like it's second nature, she acts like a cheap tart all the time and clearly thinks she's god's gift to the male species !! Her rudeness was pretty jawdropping as well. Just an awful person altogether. Drives under the influence too like she's untouchable.
I got to page 82, she yelled at Molly the dog for no reason aside from the fact she's a hateful bitch and that hit a nerve for me and I'd seen enough of her.
Plus there were too many mistakes. I was irritated on page 1 when she wrote hallow instead of hollow as that didn't bode well, she kept putting apostrophes in the wrong places-Watson's more than once as an example, she spells Rachel this way and then Rachael as the mood takes her which is just sloppy, strait-laced she spelt as straight.....then it was time to spot the deliberate mistake-"...as he closed the door behind him. Releasing a ragged breath, she stared at the open office door..." Shocking that nobody picked these up !!
I'm still pretty surprised that I hated Jill so much but I couldn't stand another minute in her presence, I'm afraid.
I would definitely recommend this and intend to read the authour's other works.
