Once a Liar

From the author of The Blind comes an electrifying story of deception, duplicity and suspense

Peter Caine, a cutthroat Manhattan defense attorney, is extremely adept at his job. On the surface, he is charming and handsome, but inside he is cold and heartless. A sociopath practically incapable of human emotions, he has no remorse when he fights to acquit murderers, pedophiles and rapists.

When Charlie Doyle, the daughter of the Manhattan DA—and Peter’s former lover—is murdered, Peter’s world is quickly sent into a tailspin as the DA, a professional enemy of Peter’s, embarks on a witch hunt to avenge his daughter’s death, stopping at nothing to ensure Peter is found guilty of the murder.

Peter sets out to prove his innocence, and as he pieces together his defense, he finds that it’s those closest to us who are capable of the greatest harm.



My Review

I did like this book. Although, I found myself not fully invested in the characters, which did take away some from my enjoyment of this book. The other factor was that I found the suspense levels to be a medium. There was some slow burn to the story. At times I did find myself re-reading parts. Despite these factors, I did like this book and would read another book from this author.

When it came to the main character, Peter, I had kind of a love/hate relationship with him. Hate because he was void of emotions and thus this is why he was good at his job. Of course, it was easy to see how Peter came to be as I got to know his mentor. The reason I did have a love reason with him is because as much as I did not like him, I was not fully convinced he rightfully deserved the situation he found himself in. However as the saying goes "Once a Liar, Always a Liar."
