“[In Behind the Lies] Readers are led through a rabbit warren of possibilities that will keep even the most avid thriller or mystery reader guessing about outcomes and nefarious involvements.”
Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

“Maren Cooper [Behind the Lies] combines a smooth blend of mystery and intrigue with a healthy dose of family drama in this absorbing thriller that may remind readers of hit corporate TV shows like Mad Men or Suits. Cooper employs a slow-burn narrative that expands with each passing page as the mystery unfolds one layer at a time. The characters are complex, with inner conflicts and agendas that dictate their actions and motives.”
