Book of Lies written by Brad Meltzer intertwines the story of Cain killing Abel with the story behind Superman. Even though it was fiction, there were many things that I did not know about the Superman story. From Jerry Siegel’s father dying from a gunshot during a robbery to the way that Siegel was denied various times for Superman, the story is well-written and fun. As for the Cain & Abel part, it was suggested that God actually forgave Abel and that the mark was actually a picture of a father & son but a secret Theule group has twisted it to a murder weapon of a horn of some sort.
As for the story, Meltzer creates a fantastic thriller involving the search for the “book of lies.” There is action, adventure, and it is rather entertaining.
