When Eric’s controlling behavior turns abusive, Maggie uses the investigation of Reese’s disappearance as an opportunity to go undercover.Maggie travels from Virginia to Ohio to Washington DC, unraveling the secrets of the dysfunctional family that drove a young woman to a desperate act of survival.
“Lies that Bind is a rollercoaster of a ride! When I have a new Ashley Farley book, I know I’m not going to get any sleep because her books are “stay up all night til you finish” good.” ~ Reviewer- RW Goodreads
