The Good Lie by A.R. Torre

The secrets between them are only getting darker. The Good Lie by A.R. Torre.

Six teens murdered. A suspect behind bars. A desperate father. In a case this shadowy, the truth is easy to hide.

Psychiatrist Dr. Gwen Moore is an expert on killers. She’s spent a decade treating California’s most depraved predators and unlocking their motives—predators much like the notorious Bloody Heart serial killer, whose latest teenage victim escaped and then identified local high school teacher Randall Thompson as his captor. The case against Thompson as the Bloody Heart Killer is damning—and closed, as far as Gwen and the media are concerned. If not for one new development…

Defense attorney Robert Kavin is a still-traumatized father whose own son fell prey to the BH Killer. Convinced of Thompson’s innocence, he steps in to represent him. Now Robert wants Gwen to interview the accused, create a psych profile of the killer and his victims, and help clear his client’s name.

As Gwen and Robert grow closer and she dives deeper into the investigation, grave questions arise. So does Gwen’s suspicion that Robert is hiding something—and that he might not be the only one with a secret.

3.5 stars
M/F Thriller

Dr. Gwen Moore is not one to discuss her job openly. She deals with clients who have violent imaginations. Her job is to assess whether or not they are truly a danger to themselves or someone else. Most of the time, it's simply fantasy. Dr. Moore helps them develop different outlets for their violent ideations.

Robert Kavin is a grieving father and an attorney. He wants to find the person responsible for his son's death as much as any parent. When that person is named, Kavin has a difficult choice to make. Does he represent them? Does he stand by and watch someone else represent his son's alleged killer?

As the Bloody Heart Killer's story unfolds, you'll be compelled to continue on the journey, but also wanting something a little more. Do the police have the right man? Did Dr. Moore drop the ball or was she doing her job? Could one of her clients be the killer or just another person who thinks about killing, without ever pulling the trigger?

This story is full of twists and turns. It's compelling on the crime storyline, but I felt that the romantic line this story took was almost filler. Yes, it created some interesting conflicts of interest, but for the most part, I think this would've been more enthralling had there been more about Dr. Moore's clients. Maybe that's just the crime show addict talking in me though. Overall, I enjoyed the story.
