The Book of Lies
by Brad Meltzer
As a comic book fan, the name Brad Meltzer comes to mind as the writer of Identity Crisis, a DC Comics event wherein the Justice League comes to terms with some bloody awful truths. It was among the most heralded events of the Aughts, and while Meltzer has only written a few other comic books since, he's better known as an author of Dan Brown conspiracies. This is not my usual genre, and so I have not until this book attempted to read one. Meltzer kind of makes it easy for me to care about Book of Lies, thanks to its plot interests in Superman, his creators, and the first biblical murder, Cain and his brother Abel. I guess I'm about to find out if this is the sort of thing that interests me as a reader.
