Lying, Cheating, and Occasionally Murder Reviews

Ginny Fite has entertained us the past two years with the Sam Lagarde Mysteries, each time planting us in the middle of a murder. It just keeps getting better! Her latest, Lying, Cheating, and Occasionally Murder, takes us into the devious world of pharmaceuticals, genetics, and molecular research. Just when you think you have it all figured out, you don’t… again and again. A rollercoaster ride to the end. Excellent!

Lying, Cheating, & Occasionally Murder is a well-planned, well-conceived murder mystery, with characters that you will enjoy to learn more about as the plot progresses. Ginny Fite litters the plot with subtleties designed to both guide and mislead the reader to the ultimate conclusion. As a fan of murder mysteries, I found this to be one book I had a hard time putting down, there is so much attention to detail that you’re not reading the story, you’re living it, trying to piece together events before the final revelation. As the title suggests lies, cheating, and murder are woven into the plot, and the author’s style of backtracking to previous events in order to paint a fuller picture of both characters and circumstances is impeccably executed. I’ll certainly be keeping an eye open for more work by Ginny Fite, and it’ll certainly win the hearts of lovers of the genre.
