Publisher's Summary

Brad Meltzer - author of the number-one New York Times best seller The Book of Fate - returns with his most thrilling and emotionally powerful novel to date.

In Chapter Four of the Bible, Cain kills Abel. It is the world's most famous murder. But the Bible is silent about one key detail: the weapon Cain used to kill his brother. That weapon is still lost to history.

In 1932, Mitchell Siegel was killed by three gunshots to his chest. While mourning, his son dreamed of a bulletproof man and created the world's greatest hero: Superman. And like Cain's murder weapon, the gun used in this unsolved murder has never been found.

Until now.

Today in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Cal Harper comes face-to-face with his family's greatest secret: his long-lost father, who's been shot with a gun that traces back to Mitchell Siegel's 1932 murder. But before Cal can ask a single question, he and his father are attacked by a ruthless killer tattooed with the anicent markings of Cain. And so begins the chase for the world's first murder weapon.

What does Cain, history's greatest villain, have to do with Superman, the world's greatest hero? And what do two murders, committed thousands of years apart, have in common? This is the mystery at the heart of Brad Meltzer's riveting and utterly intriguing new thriller.

    "great idea, poor ending"

    I enjoyed listening to this audiobook a lot. But why give an original idea (it made me want to know how much of the superman history is real) such a clich? ending?

    "Brad Meltzer does it again"

    Brad Meltzer is my all type favorite author.
    He does it again with book of lies. The ending is especially good.Scott Brick as the narrator, is a treat as always.

    "This was such a fun book"

    I heard about this book on the Glenn Beck program so I thought that I would check it out. It was really really good as long as you are not expecting a Da Vinci code. It is a little slow to get started but once it does it is a really fun read.

    "Brad Meltzer might have one good book in him..."

    But the publisher is still trying to get it out. Stock characters,boring plot. I have no idea why I keep trying with this guy. Scott Brick's fine as usual... If they'd have Dick Hill read it then I WOULD be able to turn it off.

    "Interesting premise"

    Cleverly written, you have an idea where the book is heading, but always keeps you guessing

    "Just awful"

    This is a poorly written thin potboiler. It should not have passed the publisher's desk.
