"Suspense lovers will devour this deliciously duplicitous read, which is chock-full of twists, turns, lust, greed, and dishonesty."--Library Journal
"Swanson's fourth psychological thriller is a gripping exploration of delusion and deceit; sure to please readers of Laura Lippman's stand-alones."--Booklist
"Complex [and] intriguing... [Swanson] makes sure to place those twists and turns perfectly... And when someone else turns up dead, the story goes from 0-to-60 in a split-second. Peter Swanson has done a fantastic job."--Suspense Magazine
"Gripping... [Alice's] past is peppered with secrets and the damage is revealed in a split narrative between now and then, culminating in an edge of the seat ending."--Sunday Post (UK)
"Swanson has drawn on Alfred Hitchcock to good effect. In All the Beautiful Lies, he looks instead to du Maurier.... The reader is soon gripped and wondering which will come first: Harry's seduction or his death? Swanson's magpie borrowings are always finessed into something fresh and piquant."--Guardian
"This atmospheric, stylish mystery is pure pleasure."--Sunday Mirror (UK)
"An explosive mix of seductions, obsessions, and dark secrets."--New York Journal of Books
"All the Beautiful Lies has a very rich texture which the reader gets to see only gradually, so cleverly it is disguised."--Thriller Books Journal
"Crammed with twists, turns, and duplicity galore... The narrative... soars to a nerve-shredding finale that will leave you gasping."--Saga (UK)
"All the Beautiful Lies was hard to put down... This mystery with a twist was outstanding."--Iron Mountain Daily News
"A compulsive read."--Good Housekeeping, Thriller of the Month (UK)
"There are many twists and turns, and quite a few surprises along the way.... All the Beautiful Lies is very much character-driven and strong on psychology.... A solid, twisty work of suspense."--PCA/ACA Mystery & Detective Fiction Reading List
