John Hart creates a literary thriller that is as suspenseful as it is poignant, a riveting murder mystery layered beneath the southern drawl of a humble North Carolina lawyer. When Work Pickens finds his father murdered, the investigation pushes a repressed family history to the surface and he sees his own carefully constructed facade begin to crack.

Work's troubled sister, her combative girlfriend, his gold digging socialite wife, and an unrequited lifelong love join a cast of small town characters that create no shortage of drama in this extraordinary, fast-paced suspense novel.

Hart's mastery of prose and plot belie his newcomer status as he explores the true heart of a man. An illuminating anatomy of a murder and the ripple effect it produces within a family and a community, The King of Lies is a stunning debut.

    " It was okay. I kept trying to find something about each character that I could hold onto but it just wasn't there for me. "

    " I was hoping to like this better. I think this was the debut--I should check that--of this local author, and maybe my expectations were a bit high. I really liked the plot, and this was definitely a page turner once it got going. And it's always fun to read something that takes place in NC with places I recognize. I like legal thrillers in general. The characters were unique. Not all were very well-rounded, but they were intriguing, memorable people. The flaw for me was in the writing itself. Not necessarily the dialogue, but the writing felt a little like a first-timer. Which it was. I'd be interested in reading a more recent work to see if the writing has changed somewhat. I thought I'd be getting something kind of John Grisham-ish, but while the plot was there, the writing wasn't. Yet. Definite potential. "

    " A very realistic story that will grip you so hard it hurts. "
