Review

'Smart and swift-moving... Hart knows his way around the courtrooms and jailhouses...the way that Grisham and Turow do' ― Pat Conroy

'Akin to the close-range gut-roiling atmosphere summoned by the legal thrillers of Scott Turow' ― New York Times

'Presumed Innocent meets Fatal Attraction. Hart's prose is like Raymond Chandler's, angular and hard...' ― Entertainment Weekly

'Nobody does hate like Southerners, and you'll find plenty of it in the characters slithering through this well-spun murder mystery... a gripping performance' ― People magazine

'A fast-paced mystery debut' ― Wall Street Journal

John Hart has hit a home run with his first novel, The King Of Lies, which has garnered universal and well-deserved rave reviews ― Deadly Pleasures

A lovely writing style that's full-bodied and lyrical ― Deadly Pleasures
