Publisher's Summary

From award-winning author Aaron Paul Lazar: The last place Gus LeGarde expects to find his old friend Byron Cunningham is in a plane that crashes in a field near his farmhouse. But that's just the first surprise in a series of shocking events beginning with the discovery of a Monet painting crammed into the plane's fuselage.

Is it real? Or fake? The trail leads Gus into a twisting trio of dangerous art world conspiracies. Gus fends off some very pushy collectors and soon realizes he may have crossed paths with treacherous criminals, putting his family at risk. As if that isn't enough, he must also contend with a problem that's close to his heart: his daughter, Shelby, is growing up too fast. She's determined to sing professionally and is now under the spell of a wolf in tenor's clothing, handsome Greek student Dmitri. When she vanishes with the family car, her frantic parents desperately chase the fading trail. A slew of Facebook messages on Shelby's computer lead them to The Eastman School of Music, where both Shelby's new flame and Gus's old friend have been hiding secrets linked to the art scandal. There's a real Monet out there somewhere, and nothing - including murder - will stop the desperate man who wants it.

A Lie By Any Other Name Is Still A Lie

Would you consider the audio edition of The Liar's Gallery to be better than the print version?

I always prefer audio books to printed books. Audio books bring the characters and the entire story to life!! I can become "one" with the story and hear the character's innermost thoughts and feelings in their own voice. The book becomes a living, breathing character in itself and draws me into the romance, mystery, humor and sometimes sadness. Isn't this what life is after all?

What other book might you compare The Liar's Gallery to and why?

This book is one of many that Aaron Lazar has written about his character Gus LeGarde. Every book is filled with excitement and intense emotions experienced by Gus and his family. Gus has a wonderful life filled with much love from his family but he has had his share of sadness in his life. He has become so real to me that I find myself thinking about him and his family in the same way as I think about my other friends' lives. I would give anything to "jump into" these books to become one of the characters but in a way I do as I listen to the story.

What does Lou Hecker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Lou Hecker is definitely one of my favorite audio readers I have ever heard. He draws me in to every emotion that Gus is going through. Sometimes while listening when I am driving I don't want to stop so I just keep on driving until I can find a stopping point in the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Ordinary People Find Themselves In Extraordinary Situations Filled With Terror and Suspense !! You Won't Want To Miss This One !!

Any additional comments?

I could go on and on about how wonderful Aaron Lazar's books are! I have become so involved in the life of Gus and his family that I have to listen every day or I become lonely for them. I have also listened to 2 out of 3 books of his series Paines Creek Beach and I am also hooked on those too. Aaron has a way of bringing his stories to life and every character becomes alive !!

Art and mystery

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, too much trivial story telling of family, not enough suspense and mystery.

If you’ve listened to books by Aaron Paul Lazar before, how does this one compare?

Better.

What about Lou Hecker’s performance did you like?

Good diction and cadence.

Did The Liar's Gallery inspire you to do anything?

Not particularly.
