First Lie Wins Summary

First Lie Wins: The deviously addictive MUST-READ debut thriller for 2024 by Ashley Elston

You meet a stranger at a party.
She looks like you. Even has your name...
She's here to take something you have.
So how far will you go to protect it?

'The best cat and mouse suspense I've read...with plenty of heart. I'm still breathless' LISA GARDNER



Evie Porter has everything a girl could want: a doting boyfriend, a house with a picket fence, a fun group of friends.

The only catch: Evie Porter doesn't exist.

First comes the identity. Once she's given a name and location by her employer, she learns everything there is to know about the town and the people in it.

Then the mark: Ryan Sumner.

The last piece of the puzzle is the job. For Evie, this job feels different. Ryan has gotten under her skin and she's started to picture another kind of life for herself - one where her boss doesn't pull the strings.
But Evie can't make any mistakes. Because the one thing she's worked her entire life to keep clean, the one identity she could always go back to - her real identity - just walked right into this town. A woman, who looks just like her, has stolen her name - and she wants more. As Evie's past begins to catch up with her, can she stay
one step ahead to save her future?

First Lie Wins Reviews

Buckle up . . . the best cat and mouse suspense I've read in years -- Lisa Gardner
Clever, twisty, and suspenseful, First Lie Wins kept me on my toes right up to the satisfying conclusion -- Diane Chamberlain

What a box of tricks! First Lie Wins flickers past like a shadow-play: just when you think you've worked out what you're seeing, the shapes shift, the scene transforms, and - hold on - maybe you had it wrong a moment ago? Cool and clever and full-on fun, the sort of slippery high-stakes now-you-see-me-now-you-don't thriller that few novelists are bold enough to attempt these days. Pick it up, please. This is a good one

-- A.J. Finn
Smart and sharp, fast-paced and twisty, this kept me on the edge of my seat -- Megan Miranda
Wildly inventive, diabolically clever -- Julie Clark
The most suspenseful game of deception I've ever read. Brilliant! -- Elle Cosimano
