A THOUSAND LIES
A Thousand Lies is a classic good vs. evil tome with father-son angst thrown in for good measure. There are no surprises here since the foreshadowing is almost too telling. Characters Brendan, Sam and Chance are well-drawn, but others — Julie’s parents, the stalker and, at times, Anson Poe — are less characters than caricatures. Fans of Sala will be pleased, but new readers might not become fans.
