2008: Decision Year for RIAs - October 20-22, 2008 San Jose


What does Cain, the world's first villain, and Superman, the world's first superhero have in common?
THE BOOK OF LIES by BRAD MELTZER

NEW YORK, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- For every author there is the one book they believe they were meant to write. For bestselling author BRAD MELTZER (The Tenth Justice, The Book of Fate), that book is THE BOOK OF LIES (Grand Central Publishing; September 2, 2008; $25.99).

THE BOOK OF LIES has a companion soundtrack released by Victor Records (Sony BMG). The soundtrack, which features a mix of classical and contemporary hits as well as a newly recorded song titled "The Book of Lies," is available for sale on iTunes and Amazon.com.

On why it was so important to have a soundtrack accompany this book Meltzer says, "Music is manipulative, it helps evoke an emotion. Every time I write a book I write in complete silence but there is always a soundtrack in my head as I write...What you hear [in the soundtrack] is as close as I can give you to what I'm feeling as I'm writing."

In this riveting thriller, Meltzer's expertise in comics, and in particular Superman, his interest in Cain, the world's first murderer, his belief in myths and legends, and the influence of his father and mother fuse into a heart-pounding and heart-breaking story that is among his best. Set largely in Florida, where Meltzer lives, THE BOOK OF LIES challenges our assumptions about Cain killing Abel and about the creation of Superman, the world's first superhero. Despite the many centuries between these two events, in THE BOOK OF LIES Meltzer deftly weaves them together into a suspenseful, code-breaking drama.

THE BOOK OF LIES follows Cal Harper, a disgraced government agent, who comes across his long-lost father, Lloyd, lying for dead in a park. Together they end up in a dangerous race to find the world's first murder weapon -- that which was used by Cain to kill Abel -- and which ended up in the hands of Mitchell Siegel, the father of Jerry Siegel, who created Superman. Their quest takes Cal and Lloyd -- and the evil Ellis -- to Cleveland to the house where Jerry Siegel lived and created the first Superman comics (this house is still standing today). Here they hope to solve both the mystery of Cain's murder weapon and who killed Jerry's father. After all, explains Meltzer, it was the murder of his father in a store robbery that led the young Jerry to create a bullet-proof man called Superman.

Based on intensive research into both the Bible story and the lives of Mitchell and Jerry Siegel (Meltzer interviewed Jerry Siegel's wife and daughter), THE BOOK OF LIES rings with the truth of what happened and of what could have happened. It is a thought-provoking and crackling story that sheds new light on the Siegel family, the creation of Superman and our assumptions about myths, legends, heroes and villains.

Brad Meltzer will be touring the country in support of the BOOK OF LIES and its companion soundtrack throughout September.
