Lisa Unger, then a future writer of fantastic, captivating thrillers, was born in New Haven, Connecticut. In her childhood, Lisa’s life was quite challenging because she had to move with her family to Europe. At first, she headed to the Netherlands, where she succeeded even to learn Dutch a little bit. Shortly after getting settled in the Netherlands, Lisa’s family had to move again – this time to the United Kingdom. Although Lisa had to travel and adapt to the new environment quite much, which was definitely not easy for her, she discovered that she was fond of books and travelling. The frequent moves taught her how to be an attentive, patient observer.

When she was a teenager, her family decided to come back to the United States and settle in Long Valley, a tiny town with a population of 1,879 people in New Jersey. Lisa spent her teenage years in this small town, and this – as well as a need to resettle frequently in her childhood – has influenced her formation as a personality and writer. In particular, her brother supposed that the creation of The Hollows, a town made up by Lisa Unger and introduced in a series of her novels, was inspirited by her stay in Long Valley, though Lisa denied it.

When Lisa turned eighteen, she headed to Manhattan, New York, where she enrolled at a college. The following thirteen years of her life were spent in New York, where she worked as a publicist at a big NY publishing house after her graduation. Even though Lisa Unger was more than successful at her work at the publishing house, she felt for a long time that something was going wrong in her life. She had a sensation that everything was not going the way it should in both her work and relationship.

Then, the future author decided to finish her first novel, which she began to write 10 years ago. She worked over the novel every day, even if she had just a half hour or hour of time to dedicate to her work. Lisa felt a real happiness and gladness the day when she finally could place her work on the shelf. Yet, the sensation that the turning point of her life was approaching did not leave her.

Once, when Lisa met her good friend, she also got acquainted with her future husband. For both of them, it was obvious that they love each from the very first moment of the acquaintance, and this radically changed the life of the newborn author. Since a move to Florida was a desired dream of her husband, Lisa immediately agreed to go. She quit a fairly enviable and highly-paid job and routed with him to Florida. There, she began to work over her second novel. Lisa had some savings and worked as a freelancer in public relations writing, and this helped her to get some free time for writing.

Over time, her novels were published and she became a renowned bestselling author. Her writing abilities were recognized by a number of book ratings (such as “Best Book 2006”, “Hot Book” by Harper’s Bazaar, Silver Medal for popular fiction of the 2008 Florida Book Awards, a finalist for the 2009 Prix Polar International Award, and others), where she occupied leading positions. She happily lives with her husband and daughter, and their common hobby is, indeed, travelling.

Lisa Unger’s Ridley Jones series is a crazily successful masterpiece, which was recognized by several awards. “Beautiful Lies”, the first book in this two-book series, invites a reader to get entangled in a weird, creepy story that happens to Ridley Jones. Ridley Jones is a freelancer in her middle thirties, who can boast close ties with the family and a trendy career. She lives in the East Village of New York, and her life is almost irreproachable. Her life is moving on as usual, but one day she gets to save a kid from an approaching truck. There is nothing wrong, unless media start to show your photo on the TV and post in the city’s newspapers. Once, after all the city got to know Ridley Jones thanks to the media, a stranger contacts her and asserts that she is the daughter of his. This is a turning point, which unleashes a chain of events that will dramatically change Ridley’s life.

With Jake, her new lover whom she seems to love incredibly much, she strives to go through this labyrinth of lies. She realized that she does not know where the truth is and where the lies is, who is her real friend or close person and who is the one who wants her dead. Even her boyfriend, whom she loves incredibly much, seems to have the things that he must keep in secret from her. Ridley starts to doubt every close to her person. This amazing thriller forces you to quaver together with the book’s main character.

“Silver of Truth” is the second book that features Ridley Jones. This sequel of Ridley Jones series is not less thrilling and quavering than the previous book. After Ridley got to know the truth about her real father, she is confronted with another maze of creepy events. Once, she decided to look through the pictures she has taken during the last year and she found out a strange thing: there is a shadowy man who appears in almost every photo. And everyone, beginning with the government and ending with the underworld mafia, wants to know who that person is.

In order to get to know finally who she in real is, Ridley decides to uncover the truth about that man for her. She supposes him to be her real father who has done a series of awful crimes against women. At the same time, she is being spied by the FBI agent. In search of real herself, she will uncover the terrible truth about herself.

In general, this is a perfect two-book series, and you will definitely enjoy and be thrilled all the time while reading. Lisa Unger’s Lydia Strong and Standalone series are not less captivating than the story about Ridley Jones. The masterpieces of Lisa Unger, the renowned thriller author, are certainly worth your attention.
