The Lying Tongue by Andrew Wilson
The Lying Tongue

GERBAM, January 1, 2009

As a book reviewer I take great pleasure when I can write glowing compliments about a piece of fiction when I am reading strictly for pleasure. This novel is a study of two men with hidden agendas who play-act behind their masks in order to keep their secrets. At times they themselves get so lost within their interior labyrinths they themselves don't know exactly what is happening or why. What could have become an ordinary psychological suspense novel is catapulted to a literary work due to its prose style and sensitive insights into the psyche's of two flawed characters.
