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.
"This is a first novel that lunges off the page, just grabs the reader by the throat and won't let go....Hart is a fine stylist, turning phrases with a panache that recalls Raymond Chandler." ( Booklist)

Most disagreeable maincharacter
The plot buried under the repeating description of feelings and thoughts. One step forward, two steps back. The main character's decisions are mostly irreproduciable and his self-pity is tiring and growingly annoying. Unfortunately the readers voice and pronounciation emphasizes this.
I enjoyed listening to this book a lot. The story was never boring but thrilling.
