A 2012 International Thriller Awards Finalist!
From a "master of suspense" (Library Journal) and writer of "heart-whamming" fiction (Publishers Weekly) comes an all new suspense collection by James Scott Bell.
In the full-length novella One More Lie, high-flying divorce attorney Andrew Chamberlain is on top of the legal world. He buys his suits in Beverly Hills and wins his cases in court. But one day he's approached by a friend to handle the split with his wife. That's the day things start to go very wrong for Andrew Chamberlain...up to and including murder.
One More Lie was a finalist for a 2012 ITW Award.
PLUS three stories full of the suspense twists James Scott Bell is known for:
"A Great Man" - The Reverend Mike Rickland was not expecting one of New Jersey's most notorious mobsters to pay him a visit. All Angelo Scapelli wanted was to offer Mike's church ten million dollars. On one condition.
"Some Hero" - Garth Himmelfarb, middle aged and paunchy, was only trying to work off a few pounds by jogging in his neighborhood. He didn't expect to help a woman in distress - a beautiful woman; a woman he could be a hero for. He didn't expect to step into a situation that could get him beaten up or killed. But he did.
"How to Make Living as a Freelance Writer" - A struggling author, once popular, now on the way out, comes up with a last attempt to make enough money to live on as a writer...and actually finds it. Let's just say it's not the "traditional" route.
James Scott Bell is the number-one best-selling author of Plot & Structure (Writer's Digest Books) and numerous novels and stories of suspense. Among these are Watch Your Back and Try Dying. Writing as K. Bennett he is also the author of the zombie legal thriller Pay Me in Flesh.

A fast paced story with a surprise ending. There's a lot of action and will keep you listening to the audiobook. I'm looking forward to reading more of this authors work.
Yes! Each of these four yarns captured my attention immediately! Bell's characters (who's motivations tipped toward the Breaking Bad and Sopranos variety) were fashioned in such fine detail that I almost felt I could slip into their skin - and that, I believe, was the idea ... the seduction of ... just ONE more ...
All of the characters were fascinating, but the lawyer in the first story - probably because he was the most authentic - thoroughly captured my imagination.
Basil Sands voiced all the characters to perfection ... the lawyer, the mob boss, the old dame with the pup, but if I had to pick one it would be the hispanic woman running from her abusive husband - it will tear your heart out in more ways than one.
Morality Tales for the 21st Century
I really enjoyed the first novella but I wanted so much more, he sets you up to discover who is involved but I felt like there wasn't enough of a conclusion for me. I wanted all the pieces to fit together. it's like having a puzzle and your not able to finish because your missing a few pieces. the short stories i could have skipped, they are to sorry for me, not enough, just as you get into the groove of them they are over.
the narration was amazing! Basil Sands is quickly becoming my new favorite narrator. he has been amazing in everything he reads! his voice is hypnotic! It's like he transforms into each person and at the drop of a hat. he has a very soothing voice. I can't wait to get my hands of more of his work! great job!
No. I have listened to some of James Scott Bell's before and liked them. Basil Sands did a good job of narrating.
Not now. I was VERY disappointed in this book. It was way too short and did not tie up all the loose ends. The 3 short stories at the end were OK, the one about the mafia being the best one.
Add another 100+ pages to the book and finish the story!
