First Lie Wins by Ashley Elston

“There’s an old saying: The first lie wins. It’s not referring to the little white kind that tumble out with no thought; it refers to the big one. The one that changes the game. The one that is deliberate. The lie that sets the stage for everything that comes after it. And once the lie is told, it’s what most people believe to be true. The first lie has to be the strongest. The most important. The one that has to be told.”

Ashley Elston’s latest novel, “First Lie Wins,” is a gripping rollercoaster of suspense and secrets. Clocking in at just over three hundred pages, this fast-paced thriller packs a punch!

The story kicks off with a bang—a high-stakes heist that sets the tone for the entire book. The plot is intricate, weaving together threads of espionage, betrayal, and unexpected alliances. As the layers peel away, readers are drawn into a world where nothing is as it seems.

To uncover the truth behind a web of lies that threatens global security. The tension is palpable as she navigates double-crosses and shifting allegiances.
