But the mother fears that she's losing her grip on her son as he's lured down a darker path by one of his teammates, a secretly disturbed young man from an affluent family, whose excellent grades and fun-loving manner conceal his violent criminal plans.
Then a handsome stranger who comes to town and infiltrates the high school, posing as a teacher but with a hidden agenda all his own, and the mother soon finds herself locked in a battle for the life and future of her son.
One Perfect Lie is a riveting and suspenseful family drama, and by the time you close the book, you will realise that nothing was as it seemed at the beginning.
