The Book of Lies

Bestseller Meltzer (The Book of Fate) deserves credit for an audacious conceit—wedding the biblical fratricide of Abel by his brother Cain with the unsolved 1932 homicide of the father of Jerry Siegel, the creator of iconic comic book hero Superman—but the results are less than convincing. A highly tenuous link between the two murders revolves around the mysterious weaponCain (the world's greatest villain) used to kill his brother. One of numerous theories is that the weapon was a divine book containing the secrets of immortality. After coming to the aid of a shooting victim, Calvin Harper, a homeless volunteer working in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., soon finds himself hopelessly caught up in a life-and-death quest for the ancient artifact that includes the obligatory secret societies, Nazi conspiracies, enigmatic villains and cryptographic riddles a la The Da Vinci Code. A glut of two-dimensional characters and a plot riddled with coincidences don't help.

Brad Meltzer

Brad Meltzer (born April 1 1970) is an American author of several "New York Times" best-selling books including "The Tenth Justice", "Dead Even", "The First Counsel", "The Millionaires", and "The Zero Game". He released his sixth novel, "The Book of Fate", in September 2006. Meltzer is also a comic book writer, penning a six-issue story arc for DC Comics' "Green Arrow" #16 - #21 (October 2002 - April 2003), and the controversial 2004 miniseries "Identity Crisis". He took over the writing duties for a 13-issue stint on the new monthly "Justice League of America" series, which started with issue #0 on July 19, 2006. Issue #1 following a month later. After he finished with his brief run he returned to writing a novel, leaving open the possibility of returning to comics when he has time.

Meltzer grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., and then moved to South Florida, where he graduated from North Miami Beach Senior High School in 1988, after which he graduated from the University of Michigan. In 1993 Meltzer lived in Beacon Hill, Boston, Massachusetts with roommate, fellow comic book writer/artist Judd Winick, working in sales at "Games Magazine" by day while working on his first novel by night. Afterwards Meltzer attended Columbia Law School, from which he graduated. In addition to his novels, he was the co-creator of the cancelled television series "Jack & Bobby", which ran for one season (2004-2005) on the WB television network. He married his high school sweetheart, Cori Flam, also an attorney. They recently moved back to South Florida and have one son and one daughter.

In 2008, it was announced that Meltzer is also slated to write an arc of Joss Whedon's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight" comic book for Dark Horse Comics. Whedon would later star as himself, alongside Brian K. Vaughan and Damon Lindelof in the trailer for Meltzer's 2008 release of "The Book of Lies". Whedon, Vaughan and Lindelof - who portray themselves - act as conspiracy theorists who believe in a so-called "Book of Lies", which in Meltzer's novel connects the original murder story (Cain and Abel) to the murder of Jerry Siegel's father, shortly before the conception of the iconic Superman character.

In September 2006, Meltzer participated in a work group along with the CIA, FBI, various psychologists, and Department of Homeland Security intelligence staff to brainstorm new ways that terrorists might attack the U.S. [ [http://www.bradmeltzer.com/homeland.php Official site] ] [ [http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A50534-2004Jun17.html Washington Post] ]
