Review: Lies We Bury by Elle Marr

A twisty and heartbreaking thriller, LIES WE BURY is one of my favourite reads of the year. There is so much depth, emotion and mystery rolled into this story about facing our pasts and refusing to let them define who we are.

After escaping the basement prison where she lived until she was seven, Marissa has spent the past twenty years trying to reinvent herself and move on from the trauma. When she secures a job as a freelance crime scene photographer for a Portland newspaper, her past comes back to haunt her as she covers a series of macabre murders that all feature dark underground locations just like the one she was born into.

LIES WE BURY takes readers on a fast-paced, heart pounding journey where everything, and everyone, can be questioned and nothing is what it seems. This book is ROOM with a mysterious and murderous twist that doesn’t let up until the “I never saw that coming” conclusion.

Marr’s writing is atmospheric and crisp, with characters that get under your skin. I was hooked from page one and didn’t want to put it down. This is a must add thriller to your shelves.
