FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THIRTEEN
'This guy is the real deal. Trust me.' Lee Child
BEFORE YOU READ THIS BOOK
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:
1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you've found me. I'm coming for you next.
After you've read this book, you'll know: the truth is far more twisted...

'Steve Cavanagh must have sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads outside of Rosedale, Mississippi in exchange for becomingone of the world's best crime writers. Just read TWISTED and he's done it again. As edgy, gripping & brilliant as Thirteen. Steve is 5/5' Adrian McKinty
In a note at the start of this clever standalone from Cavanagh (the Eddie Flynn series), the pseudonymous J.T. LeBeau, a bestselling thriller author, warns readers not to "believe a single word you read." Outside an L.A. theater where a memorial service is being held for LeBeau, Paul Cooper waits nervously, intent on shooting one of the mourners. Flash back four months. In Port Lonely on the East Coast, Maria, Paul's wife, who has begun an affair with Daryl Oakes, a waiter at the Coopers' country club, discovers a bank statement revealing that Paul has received $20 million from LeBeau Enterprises that he has concealed from her. Paul himself seems to be in hiding from a possible murderer. After Maria is brutally attacked and Paul disappears, local law-enforcement suspect Paul is involved in the attack and that Daryl also has a role; in any event, uncovering LeBeau's identity is crucial to cracking the case. Fresh twists on identity and motivation make up for some overly familiar final revelations. Cavanagh fans won't be disappointed, despite this not being his best.
Good, but not engaging
This story certainly has the twists expected from Cavanagh’s writing. However, for me there is something lacking that I had become accustomed to from the writer. It certainly has the reader guessing until the end. (Note to self - read on Kindle)
