like A Beautiful, Terrible Thing (2017) by Jen Waite."

If you've ever been lied to, or tolda lie, you will want to read this surprising, personal, and funny investigationof deception."—Piper Kerman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orange is the New Black

"From the wildlyentertaining opening chapter of Duped, Abby Ellin explores the why andhow of great imposters, many of whom occupied important swaths of her life.Swerving from the deceitful, manipulative, pathological narcissists to theprofessional use of lie detectors, she makes researching dishonesty anentertaining and fascinating read."—Jonna Hiestand Mendez, former CIA chief of disguise
"I loved this book,and not just because of Abby Ellin's masterful storytelling. This is a bookthat can save lives. She paints an exquisite portrait of what life with apredator is like.

"I have recommended this one to friends who've loved someone they turned out not to know...
