"State of Lies"

Siri Mitchell is the author of over a dozen novels. She has also written two novels under the pseudonym of Iris Anthony. She graduated from the University of Washington with a business degree and has worked in various levels of government. As a military spouse, she lived all over the world, including Paris and Tokyo.

Mitchell applied the Page 69 Test to her new novel, State of Lies, and reported the following:
From page 69:
It’s not like I had expected Sean’s autopsy to be the key to some secret code. But still, I’d been hoping for something more. For some hint as to what Sean had been doing.
– Georgie Brennan
Months after her husband, Sean, is killed by a hit-and-run driver, Georgie Brennan discovers he lied to her about what he was doing the night he died. This quote from page 69 provides the catalyst in Georgie’s search for the truth. It is here that she realizes if she wants to find out what really happened, she’s going to have to go beyond the police report and Sean’s autopsy; she’s going to have to disregard her assumptions about the man she married and start asking questions.

As a quantum physicist, Georgie is used to testing her theories. She’ll have to put to use all of her training as a scientist to solve the mysteries of her husband’s death.

One thing will quickly become apparent to Georgie: the more she digs for the truth, the fewer people she can trust. Not her friends. Not her parents.

Maybe not even herself.
