King of Lies
One horrible night the lives of Jackson Workman Pickens, Work, and his sister Jean were sent tumbling into chaos. Their mother died that night during a family argument then their father disappeared. Now, a little more than a year later, the police have found the body of their father; Ezra Pickens was murdered. His son Work is in a race against the police to discover what happened on that fateful night, or at least to deflect attention away from his troubled sister even if he must take the rap in her stead. Set in contemporary Salisbury, North Carolina, this taut literary mystery will keep you spellbound right to the end.
