I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written psychological thriller mystery book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a large set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great horror movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued? There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

Stanke's characters are complex—sometimes loathsome and at other times sympathetic. In other words, human. Take Tobias, for example. He takes the lives of several people throughout the story, but you still sympathize with him because 1, he does so out of necessity, and 2, he does so with conscience. But it goes deeper than that. Tobias is not the favorite son. He feels unwanted and unappreciated. You feel sorry for him. I used the word "rollercoaster" to describe the plot, but I could also use it to describe the characters. They are not all good or all bad, but like all humans, they are a combination of both, and there are moments when you hate them and other moments where you can't help but like them.
Time Lies is not a perfect novel—Stanke could have done a better job editing, for example—but if you enjoy reading a book that will keep you guessing about what comes next, then you will enjoy Stanke's book.
