"... a suspenseful read packed with vivid imagery and surreal encounters ... a dizzying array of events, mysteries, supernatural intrigue, and action." - Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest BookReview

"... a first-rate psychological thriller with finely wrought characters, a tantalizing puzzle and just a touch of romance, all delivered with the sights, sounds and marvels that are
Hawaii as a background." Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

About the Author

Virginia King has lived most of her life in Sydney, Australia, but has travelled to many places. She's been a teacher, an unemployed ex-teacher, a producer of audio-books, a writer of over 50 children's books, a writing workshop presenter and an award-winning publisher. "The First Lie" is her debut novel for adults, the first mystery in the Selkie Moon series. These days Virginia lives with her husband in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney overlooking a valley full of birds. Most mornings she does some yoga, watches the French news (even understands some of it), then sits down and writes till late in the afternoon. Bliss. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
