Meg Williams is a con artist. She has been using a variety of names over the past ten years fine-tuning her craft. Her ultimate target is Ron Ashton, a businessman and local politician who conned and swindled Meg’s mother into losing their large Brentwood, California home. Years of being homeless and living in a van has fed Meg’s desire for revenge. Kat Roberts, a budding journalist, discovered Meg’s exploits and thought covering her story would be her big break. But this quest turned disastrous for Kat and now she too has spent ten years searching for Meg and seeking her own revenge. The two are finally eye to eye. Let the games begin!
I became a fan of author Julie Clark after reading The Last Flight. The Lies I Tell is a fast-paced, can’t-put-down, cat and mouse thriller about two women who are trying to fool one another. While Kat is a sympathetic character, it is Meg who is the star. She lies and steals, yet you’ll be rooting for her anyway. I fully enjoyed this very clever tale of a woman who unapologetically does what she feels is warranted. I loved her response as to why: "It's the Girl Code. We have to look out for each other because no one else will."
