A thriller and a history lesson in one, THE BOOK OF LIES satisfied my lust for all things Superhero. Written by Brad Meltzer, the story is a fictional treasure hunt wrapped around the true tale of how the comic book hero Superman was created by Jerry Siegel in 1932.

Leaping across the country, trying to outwit each other, three sets of people race to find the Book of Lies, which may contain the secret of immortality. Most of them will not stop at murder to get what they want.

Metzer really packs in the thrills and keeps you guessing as to who is Cain and who is Abel in this modern story.

I recommend this book!

Rating: 9/10
Book #73 (2008)
