CanadaReviewers critiques many novels in the suspense genre and we see the same plot fall out in countless books. I am happy to report this book is different. The plot twists enough to keep readers on their toes but is held together by the depth of characterization and conversation throughout the novel. Reading almost like a film script, the book lends itself to big screen believability and billing. Following Skylar on her journey to save her sister, the reader cannot help but cheer her on as we see the depth of her strength emerge in the first few chapters. By chapter ten we have a budding romance between Skylar and a private investigator, Braznovich. We give the book five stars and await the assumed sequel, since this book ended abruptly and left us wanting more.

Review by: Tricia Riley on Oct. 31, 2012 :
I couldn't put this book down, stayed up late to finish it and was left wanting more. I'm hoping there's a sequel because it was left open-ended like there is more coming. I found myself thinking about it during the day and laying in bed contemplating what would happen. The story totally sucked me in. It is like DaVinci Code meets Fifty Shades, only it doesn't have the open erotica of the Shades books, still there's a sensual undertone between Skylar and Braznovich that adds an exciting level of romance to the story. There's so much action in this book that it really gets your adrenaline pumping. Awesome book, one of my favorites!
Excellent read. I found myself intrigued through the entire book. It starts with a bang and I wondered what was happening and then the story started to unravel, but just as understanding would ensue there was another plot twist that kept me salivating. It reminded me of the DaVinci Code and it has the perfect mix of humor and sex to break up the action. This book is action-packed suspense!
I'm a Dan Brown fan. I like his style and the amount of action in his books, which is what made me pick up House of Lies because it was said to have a DaVinci Code feel. Did it ever! I was worried at first that the story would be too religious-based, but as I read, it was clear that a political aspect was in play. I found the plot enticing, as it lured me toward new angles and perspectives at every turn. This is the kind of book you lay in bed at night thinking about and trying to figure out. The fact that it ends abruptly tells me there's another one coming and I am eagerly awaiting it. Anyone who enjoys suspense and action will find this book to be a phenomenal read. Worth the price. Highly recommend it.
