BOOK REVIEW: THE BOOK OF LIES
BY BRAD MELTZER

We hope you enjoy this book review by Nancy Eaton.



Is it possible there is a connection between Cain killing his brother Abel and the 1932 murder of Mitchell Siegel?

Mitchell Siegel’s son, Jerry, created the hero Superman while mourning the death of his father. The one thing that is similar in both Abel and Siegel’s murder, is the weapon was never found.

Cal Harper works for a homeless shelter in Fort Lauderdale. One night while looking for homeless people on the streets, he finds his estranged father fatally wounded with a gunshot wound. The interesting thing is his father was shot with the same gun that killed Mitchell Siegel. Now Cal and his father are frantically trying to find the world’s first murder weapon.

What does all of this have to do with Cain killing Abel? You will be surprised!

Brad Meltzer has written a novel that has continuous action. There are many references to the Bible and adding the comic book hero makes it all the more intriguing. It is quite interesting to read a book of fiction that includes so much historical information. This thriller is well written and moves at a good pace. The reader will get an in-depth description of the characters. Be sure to add The Book of Lies to your reading list.
