"Lies" is Scott Lynch's hilarious and engrossing genre-bending debut. The book follows Locke Lamora, head of the Gentlemen Bastards. They are a gang of thieves and friends who entangle themselves in heist after heist, attempting to outsmart the gang bureaucracy of Tel Verrar. A fast moving world of ancient magic, mystical sea creature fights, chosen family, and a cunning criminal elite, "Lies" was a great ease into summer.
