Simply Lies by David Baldacci Book Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 6:20 Man comes a twisting new psychological thriller in which two women—one a former detective, the other a dangerous con artist—go head-to-head in an electrifying game of cat and mouse.

Mickey Gibson, single mother and former detective, leads a hectic life similar to that of many moms: juggling the demands of her two small children with the tasks of her job working remotely for ProEye, a global investigation company that hunts down wealthy tax and credit cheats.  

When Mickey gets a call from a colleague named Arlene Robinson, she thinks nothing of Arlene’s unusual request for her to go inventory the vacant home of an arms dealer who cheated ProEye’s clients and fled. That is, until she arrives at the mansion to discover a dead body in a secret room—and that nothing is as it seems.   

Not only does the arms dealer not exist but the murder victim turns out to be Harry Langhorne, a man with mob ties who used to be in Witness Protection. What’s more, no one named Arlene Robinson works at ProEye.  

In the blink of an eye, Gibson has become a prime suspect in a murder investigation—and now her job is also on the line until she proves that she was set up. Before long, Gibson is locked in a battle of wits with a brilliant woman with no name, a hidden past, and unknown motives—whose end game is as mysterious as it is deadly.

I love balducci but…. The worst balducci book I ever read! You need some of your great old characters with a new story! Sorry

Decent offering. Kept me guessing

Simply Lies. ..the worst book I have ever read, Struggled to finish And I have purchased and read every book Baldacci has written! Especially disappointed because I had been so anticipating it’s release.

Fine book.. Fast interesting read.

New team/ new thrillers. Excellent

Not up to the usual Baldacci standard. From the start there is an editing error. Nice job Mitch. There are more characters in this book than Game of Thrones. Most of the characters have additional identities. Was that all really necessary?!?! No! All in all this was very disappointing. Anyone giving this book more than two stars doesn’t really know the quality of this author’s other books.

Simply Lies. A good read and an interesting, though somewhat complicated, story.

Should have believed others. I’ve enjoyed many Baldacci’s. This really IS junk.

Rare miss for Baldacci.. One of my favorite authors, but this was tedious & frantic. Great idea with such possibilities that just didn’t work. Didn’t read like a Baldacci. Disappointed.

The title didn’t reveal stories intent. Intriguing and deep thinking. Almost seemed factual and not fiction.

False advertising. Zero stars as only 19 pages down loaded from the store.

Simply Lies. The book is unreadable. What a ridiculous plot. How did the story outline ever make it past an editor. It is Simply Terrible.

Simply Lies. I enjoyed reading this story. It was very interesting as are all his books. Can’t wait for the next one.

Simply Lies. I don’t think David Baldacci wrote this book If he really did, he is slipping!!

Not one of Baldacci’s best novels. This book was slow and the ending was not dramatic at all. The book lacked substance

Minus 2 stars. Unreadable. Idiotic plot, unrealistic characters, drivel for dialogue. Total disappointment. A must skip…

Tried too hard. Too convoluted & confusing. Lost me half way through.

Simply Lies. Sorry to trash anyone’s efforts but this book was absolutely one of the worst things I’ve ever read. It’s shallow, disconnected, and disjointed. Baldacci doesn’t trust his readers enough to build a viable plot. He just keeps dropping in nonsense ‘clues’ and random characters in what I assume is intended to build suspense. Nothing is tied up logically … it’s just a bunch of junk sliding downhill into a heap. Baldacci seems like a really nice person and I’m sorry to be so frank, but this book is abysmal. A complete waste of time and money.

Outside the Comfort Zone. Interesting story that put readers and the Author outside the Baldacci comfort zone. While the tech and crypto detail is intriguing (Author did much research), it didn’t necessarily move the story along. The real story is found in the two main characters and their ever growing connection. Still, an enjoyable read wrapped with dark world tech.

Simply Lies. Very disappointing from David how corruption escalated and existed everywhere along with abuse of young children by their parents within the protection of federal agencies like WITSEC, FBI and Marshals M LAS VEGAS

A total waste. Baldachi has talent but not shown in this contrived work. contrived tale. Terrible waste of talent..totally contrived work.

Simply Lies:. The most unbelievable scenario ever written. Simply laughable premise that gets even more absurd as the plot develops. Major disappointment.

Simply Lies. I love this author’s books!! I greatly enjoyed reading this story, and read it completely in a day. It is heartening to see the resilience of the human spirit even after unspeakable horror and trauma. How very different the lives of Francine and Doug could have been with loving, engaged parents like Mickey was lucky to have. It really matters who our parents are, but even with cruel, selfish, monstrous parents, it’s still possible to overcome hardships and adversities.

Simply Lies. Disappointing. Tedious read. Story not engaging.

Fast and furious. Rapid read with some twists predictable, others not.

Don’t waste your money. Robotic characters. Random events. Disconnected storyline. Boring. Way beneath Baldacci. Probably written by a flunky.

Disappointing. Baldacci’s not the author I think he used to be. This story is simply too far-fetched to be enjoyable. A few high points of course, but overall not a book I can recommend reading.

Disappointing!. I’ve read most of his books and loved the King/Maxwell & Puller series. Simply Lies has too many characters and make to labor to keep reading hoping for it to get better. The ending is very predictable! I would have given it a “2” star, but gave Balducci a pass based on his prior successes.

simply. worst baldacchino book ever. Plot line was totally unbelievable. A professional computer expert and ex cop takes phone calls and follows directions from some deranged stranger and doesn’t talk to anyone about or investigate who it is. Ridiculous and not believable.

This could be the start of something big…. Worthy of a sequel, see what the ladies can do together when they’re fully on the same page all the time.

Apt title. Fun read. Intriguing new characters. Ready for the next story!

Mindless summer read. Good beach book Not up to the authors usual standard Simplistic ending

Least favorite Baldacci read. I am a huge fan and this was not what I was expecting. Very hard to get into and messy

LIES !!!! !. A great read I had a lot of fun with Baldacci’s characters and this fast moving story line. Funny how it all worked out in the end, quirks and all. I’ve read just about all his books and they’re always entertaining.

Convoluted. Ends well, but takes a while to get there. Somewhat hard to follow with people changing names and a lot of characters. Not his best work, but hold your attention.

3/4 of the book in, nothing happens. Monotonous, slow, un-engaging characters, I keep hoping something happens, but I have reached the limit of my patience. Cannot finish it. A waste of money and time. This one is a disappointing dud

Absolutely awesome!. Excellent work.

Simply Lies. Choppy and lousy storyline.
