John Hart creates a literary thriller that is as suspenseful as it is poignant, a riveting murder mystery layered beneath the southern drawl of a humble North Carolina lawyer. When Work Pickens finds his father murdered, the investigation pushes a repressed family history to the surface and he sees his own carefully constructed façade begin to crack.
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.

Heart breaking mind bending book.
I read "The Last Child" first and loved it so much that I went straight to this book. I could not put either book down and find him to be an exceptional writer. So compelling is the writing that I read both of them while on vacation inside of 4 days. As a lover of Thrillers, this was another amazing book! Now on to his next book.....
Haunting story. Very well written. I have read all three of Mr. Hart's books. I would recommend all.
