The lie maker : a novel

Barclay, Linwood (Author).

In this twisty, fast-paced thriller a man desperately tries to track down his father - who was taken into witness protection years ago - before his enemies can get to him. Your dad’s not a good person. Your dad killed people, son. These are some of the last words Jack Givins’ father spoke to him before he was whisked away by witness protection, leaving Jack and his mother to pick up the shattered pieces of their lives as best they could. Years later, Jack is a grown man with problems of his own. He’s a talented but struggling author, barely scraping by on the royalties from his moderately successful first book. So when the U.S. Marshals approach him with a lucrative opportunity, he’s in no position to turn them down. They’re recruiting writers like Jack to create false histories for people in witness protection - people like Jack’s father. The coincidence is astonishing to Jack at first, but he soon realizes this may be a chance to find his dad.
