Umberto Alvarez is a grieving man whose quest is to bring down the railroad company he blames for the death of his wife and children three years earlier—no matter who gets in the way. Peter Tyler is an ex-cop looking to redeem himself after being suspended from the force. Now an investigator with the National Transportations Safety Board, he will stop at nothing to catch the elusive Alvarez.

But the case is more complicated than it seems. As Tyler’s investigation proceeds, it becomes apparent that Alvarez is no terrorist—in fact, the more Tyler investigates, the closer he comes to the real truth.

Packed with action, laced with romance, brimming with heart-stopping suspense, and marked by the intelligence and humility that make Ridley Pearson’s novels stand apart from others in the genre, Parallel Lies will cause listeners to agree that he is “the best damn thriller writer on the planet” (Booklist).

Listener Opinions

    " Good book about a father seeking revenge on a railroad for poor maintenance on RR crossing arms that failed to come down. He wife and two children were killed when hit by a train. Lots of train talk - enjoyed it. Good, unexpected ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 3/21/2011

    " Pretty fair thriller about fellow who likes to derail trains because he has a grudge. I didn't believe the resolution and I thought there was a logical problem that was big enough to drive a Mack truck through. The rest of the story was alright. Pearson has done better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 11/18/2010

    " This book was exciting, convoluted and strangely satisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn (in SC) C234D | 10/14/2010

    " I read this book more than five years ago so I don't remember details. I noted that I thought it was good, but the romance didn't ring true to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 6/4/2010

    " I readlly enjoyed this Ridley Pearson novel. The character of Peter Tyler is a good one and the story moves quite well.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sue | 5/7/2010

    " Unlike other Pearson books, this one just seemed to drag on and on when it could have been more "on edge" if he had cut the chase down considerably. Knowing who and why right from the start took away from the suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/22/2010

    " Did you like the movie The Fugitive? Well this feels like that. Probably because of the trains. But also because of the guys on the run. And the agents. And the bad guys. And the injustice of it all. And the good guys winning in the end.

    Overall, a decent lunchtime diversion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 10/11/2009

    " Ridley Pearson writes great suspense/thrillers. This one is no exception "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 9/9/2009

    " While it moved a little slower than I would have liked, I enjoyed the character development and attention to detail found in this novel. Suspense was at a premium and I would have enjoyed a little more tension. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 8/20/2009

    " Still think that Pearson is a great author! If you live in the West, you need to read his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 3/3/2009

    " This Ridley guy is good! Not saying that this was really better than the one I just read, but they were so different in subject & part of the country. He's got more for me, I thinks "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shahid | 9/27/2008

    " veeery interesting story..a different kind of mystery set in avenue we do not see often.....definitely worth the time "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 8/14/2008

    " I was reminded thrillers rarely grab me. It is less predictible than many. Still, about half way through I was reading to finish. "
