By: Marcia Shein

About the Book

The story turns on the main character Marisa and her love for a drug dealer working for a Colombian cartel. Damian is rich and powerful and seduces Marisa with stories that he will take her out of her poverty and stagnant life. She falls in love with the dream of adventure, travel and money. She has no idea of Damian’s true name or past. Marisa is blinded by love to the truth until her accidental arrest, when Damian, in desperation sets into motion, with Marisa’s brother, William, a daring escape from a federal prison in order to keep her from cooperating against him. Damian’s web of lies takes Marisa on a dangerous adventure of betrayal. Once she begins to see what Damian has planned she is desperate to get help and turn her life around. She enlists the help of her attorney in Atlanta who also ends up entangled in Damian’s web. Little does Marisa know that Damian will track her down—from New York to Colombia—and do anything to stop her from betraying him. To escape, Marisa and her friends will risk everything, as will Damian. Who wins in the end will take you on a rollercoaster ride of danger and intrigue.

    Love Lies by Marcia Shein

    Posted by Gail Kilpatrick on Jul 27th 2019

    Shein has created a riveting account of the drug world that is at once intimate and large in scope. She has the ability to create hair raising tension and action that makes it all but impossible to put the book down. This is all heightened by the fact that much of the story is based on real events. Love Lies stirs emotions and the reader finds oneself anxiously wanting relief for its protagonist and revenge against the drug thugs. It has all the elements of an exiting read and because of its highwire action and vividly observed visuals I would love to see it translated to film or television as a series. Bravo to a first time novelist.
