Review: The Last Time I Lied is the first I have read from Riley Sager, but it’s his second published novel. This thriller is told in alternating perspectives of when teenage Emma stays at a camp for the first time and present day adult Emma returning the same camp 15 years later trying to figure out an unsolved investigation of the three girls who disappeared from her cabin years ago. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised how good this thriller was. Sager does an excellent job exuding the mean girl drama among the characters. There are definitely quite a few twists and turns that kept me on my toes. All the characters are well formulated and each to his/her own. I was impressed how well he was able to write well from a female perspective. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves reading dark psychological thrillers.
