I found that he hasn't tried to show off his knowledge of words by constantly throwing out huge and even archaic words that require me to make good use of my dictionary on my Kindle every 45 seconds, the way I have seen some authors do. I feel like his style of writing levels the playing field for different levels of readers. He does an excellent job with explaining everything and telling you just what you need to know, eliminating any possible confusion. He steadily built towards an amazing climax that has left this audience wanting more.
Fingers Murphy amazed me with his writing. Everything flowed extremely well. Personally, from a writer's perspective, it makes me wonder how much time he invested writing this novella. The editing, his grammar, the length, the story--everything just seemed so perfect. It's really impressive. Fingers, you are a very talented and skilled writer. I hope to see you topping some best sellers charts in the nearby future.
Certainly much more than just something to read while sitting in an airport wasting time waiting for planes that are always late. If the order in which his books have been "published" is the order in which they have been written, Murphy is progressing as an author, and certainly has me waiting for whatever comes next. His blog says he's putting aside the third installment of the Ollie Olsen series for the next book he wants to write. I can't wait.
The book ends with teasers from three other Kindle books by this author. I will likely read $200 and a Cadillac and may even come back for more.
Everything I tell You is a Lie is a quick read in which you are the fly on the wall in a prison psychiatrist office. As the layers upon layers upon layers of damage are slowly peeled away you learn how the history of a family leads to an unfortunate event that has our main character trying to figure out how he landed in jail. The magic here is how Murphy brings you along as the young patient slowly discovers what has happened. You are left to wonder what if that was me; bad luck, wrong place, wrong time, a victim of your family circumstance? These are all questions that the reader is was left with after finishing the novella.
After three brilliant novels, Murphy again switched formats and produces a clear winner. It is hard to master the novel, however Murphy has clearly demonstrated his skills as a story teller writing in one of the most challenging formats, a novella. If Murphy asserts with this novella that killers are born, I would submit to you that great story teller are born too.
This will be a book many will be talking about years from now. Read it today and discover the magic.
