Editor's eBook Pick of the Week

Thu Sep 11, 2008 - 8:59 AM EDT - By Jennifer Chappell


I'm always on the hunt for a good eBook to dive into. Even though I have several eBooks that I have yet to start on, I keep buying more. I just can't help myself. And it's like I can't even stick with one eBook at a time. I'm reading two eBooks at the moment, plus I'm still reading in a Clive Cussler paperback. I have books stacked near my bed, on the coffee table beside the couch, and some scattered in my office, besides the many bookshelves around my house that are crammed full of books.

But of course what's easy to access and they don't make a mess are all the eBooks residing on my Palm devices. I've loaded up my Centro with some great eBooks and have been enjoying reading them in my spare time.

I recently mentioned the eBook "Rules of Deception" by Christopher Reich. I started reading that one very early this morning as Insomnia was paying me one of her usual, uninvited visits. So far, "Rules of Deception" is very exciting. I can already tell that it's going to be a speedy page turner.

Anyway, in my search for other interesting eBooks this week, I came across "The Book of Lies" by Brad Meltzer. Below is a description of the book:

Brad Meltzer--author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Fate--returns with his most thrilling and emotionally powerful novel to date. In Chapter Four of the Bible, Cain kills Abel. It is the world's most famous murder. But the Bible is silent about one key detail: the weapon Cain used to kill his brother. That weapon is still lost to history. In 1932, Mitchell Siegel was killed by three gunshots to his chest. While mourning, his son dreamed of a bulletproof man and created the world's greatest hero: Superman. And like Cain's murder weapon, the gun used in this unsolved murder has never been found. Until now. Today in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Cal Harper comes face-to-face with his family's greatest secret: his long-lost father, who's been shot with a gun that traces back to Mitchell Siegel's 1932 murder. But before Cal can ask a single question, he and his father are attacked by a ruthless killer tattooed with the ancient markings of Cain. And so begins the chase for the world's first murder weapon. What does Cain, history's greatest villain, have to do with Superman, the world's greatest hero? And what do two murders, committed thousands of years apart, have in common? This is the mystery at the heart of Brad Meltzer's riveting and utterly intriguing new thriller.

Brad Meltzer's book links the Mitchell Siegel murder to a biblical conspiracy plot. David Colton recently wrote an interesting article in USA Today entitled "Superman's story: Did a fatal robbery forge the Man of Steel?". I read the USA Today article and plan to read the eBook "The Book of Lies". I've always loved Superman comic books since I was a kid and loved to watch the reruns of the television show and of course all the Superman movies. Superman is the ultimate hero. And I've always found the story of Cain and Abel, along with all the other great stories of the Bible to be interesting, so I look forward to reading what Meltzer has come up with regarding these two stories.

You can get "The Book of Lies" at Fictionwise for $19.99.
