However, every little thing about this man is a lie. Susan, a single mother, is very proud of her one and only child - her son Raz.
He's a pitcher at school and is showing exceptional results, which is exactly why they've recruited the boy for a mighty scholarship to a prestigious college. That's like a dream come true for them both, and now Raz has a promising future in "big-time" baseball. At the same time, the guy's dad passed away recently, making him super-vulnerable.

Who is he really, and what does he want with these people? One Perfect Lie is an engrossing, suspenseful, mysterious and page-turning psychological thriller that you won't be able to put down.
