Sintesi dell'editore

"I come from a long line of idiots."

Those were the last words his father uttered before dying, and from what he knew of his family tree and the unfortunate end that came to so many of his ancestors, Del Honeycutt couldn't disagree. What he didn't know was that his family held dark secrets - secrets that were about to come crashing down upon him.

A seemingly innocent date gone tragically wrong plunges Del into a web of murder, lies, greed, and a hidden fortune dating back to a crime committed 85 years earlier by his great-grandfather. Accompanied by Sabrina, the sister of Del's brutally murdered date, a violent journey of discovery and fear begins. Pursued by vicious killers intent on eliminating anyone with knowledge of the 85-year-old crime, their only hope of survival is to find the reason behind the original crime and why, decades later, someone is still willing to kill to keep it hidden. But Sabrina is concealing a monstrous lie of her own. Is she who she says she is?

By the author of the Amazon best-selling thriller, Wisdom Spring.

Better then I thought it would be

I honestly liked this, I was not sure going in that I would, but the plot was all it said it would be, and much more, so much is going on in the story and the ending is quite good.

I think each chapter has something to offer readers and its worth a first and second read. All the main characters are interesting and each piece of the story from the history to the relationships and secrets brings something to the story, little if anything takes away from it. I will say that the narration was one of the better ones I have heard from the site, the female voices were somewhat limited but most he made work for him and overall the action was well done and I love how he made the story come alive.

I got a free copy of this book in return for my honest review.

This listen was a thrill ride

This book was a great mystery thriller with a little history lesson thrown in for good measure.(Seriously, how did I graduate - from college no less - and never know there was a place called Fordlandia!)

The quest to solve the mystery took the main character, Dell, and his instalove on a series of adventures, all while staying just one step ahead of nefarious men on a mission. There was depth. There was inner turmoil. There was the constant threat of murder and mayhem.

The narrator was good. I appreciate that he did not try to force a female voice. He managed to give two different personas without forcing a cringeworthy falsetto for the female lead. I tip my tiny invisible hat to Hernandez.

The ending wasn't even remotely predictable. It made perfect sense, but I had it going many different ways, none of them even close. There are very few things in the book world more fun than that.

Great Listen, Action Packed Thriller!

All Lies is Book 1 of 3 in the “Lies” Mystery Thriller Series by Andrew Cunningham. All Lies is filled with action and suspense from the start. I listen in my car to and from work, on more than one occasion I found myself taking the “long way home” because I just couldn’t stop listening. The story is loaded with well developed relatable characters thrown together in a gripping story that you won't want to miss!!!

As always Greg Hernandez does an outstanding job with narration, his voice is smooth, crystal clear, and easy to follow, he is by far one of my favorite narrators.

Sooo...rumor has it Greg Hernandez will narrate all 3 books in the Andrew Cunningham Lies series. Book 1 All Lies, Book 2 Fatal Lies, Book 3 Vegas Lies. I’m looking forward to listening to each as soon as they are available in Audible.

I recommend this book to fans of mystery, action, and detective works. It was highly enjoyable!

Fun mystery with a historical twist & crazy turns

I really enjoyed All Lies. It was a fun mystery with plenty of thrills, close calls and a tough no-nonsense woman helping Del figure out who done it, what did they do and where'd they put the loot. Del and Sabrina encountered a very interesting cross-section of humanity. I loved every twist. Friends and foes swap sides in unforseen and sometimes humorous ways reminding me of the best parts of The Pirates of the Caribbean.

You've got to give this a listen. It'll keep you entertained until the very end where at last, the entire twisty tale has been unraveled. Simply wonderful. Greg's performance was great. He brought the characters to life and Grace them free rein.

This is a 5 star listen.

Flat characters, poor narration.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The book lacked quality in characterization, as well as narration. Thus both fields need improvement. The characters in this book are pretty flat, specially the female characters. They are mostly used as plot devices, without any depth. There is no character development arc and everyone is pretty one dimensional.

The narration leaves a lot to be desired. There's no voice acting whatsoever. It's like listening to a TTS engine reading a book.

How could the performance have been better?

I'm not sure whether the same narrator could've done a better job. I haven't listened to his other work. At the minimum, there should've been different voices for different characters and different situations should've been narrated with different infliction, based on the emotion of the scene.

Any additional comments?

I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

Good story idea

The story itself is interesting and deserves 5 starts. Unfortunately there is almost all “telling “ the story instead of “showing”. The beginning started well, but in second half of the book it seems that the author struggled to revealing the truth in any kind of interesting way. I think if the author gave the book to half a dozen beta readers and changed the telling to showing, it would turn into an excellent book.
The book is narrated almost as a nonfiction, not a story. The second half is narrated way better, but still wouldn’t deserve 5 stars.

Average story with below average performance

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

For me, the narrator lacked emotion and dramatic performance. The story was average with an unrealistic, all too neat ending, but could have been made better by a different narrator.

Would you recommend All Lies to your friends? Why or why not?

Would not recommend except perhaps as a printed read. The story is too clean, too tied up. The ending was just too unrealistic. Would be OK as a quick mindless read, but not worth listening too for hours.

What didn’t you like about Greg Hernandez’s performance?

Totally lacked emotion. I felt like I was listening to a high school student being forced to read a story in front of class. No inflection, no dramatic emphasis, no differentiation between characters. Every word was enunciated perfectly, but that’s not how real people talk. He has substituted a perfect reading for what should have been a dramatic performance. I will avoid other works narrated by him.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very little reaction because of the flat narration.

Totally Entertaining!

Secrets in an old attic lead to a treasure hunt, romance, and murder in All Lies. It is a fast paced, exciting story with lots of surprises. Love how the author ties the characters together. So many connections, so many possibilities...And all going back generations because of one crime. I listened to it in one day! This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review. So pleased for the opportunity.

Looking forward to more from Mr. Cunningham and narrator Greg Hernandez.

They make it look so easy in the movies

A book which started off so well, with expectations of great characters caught up in a thrilling mystery but which was unable to sustain it's good beginnings.
With an opening line, "I come from a long line of idiots," it would be hard for a reader not to want to know more and the more, as it is quickly revealed, is intriguing. Del's professor father had recently died, murdered, to be more precise, by a furious husband not happy with dad's dalliance other his wife. And a grandfather had fallen out of a bomb bay in World War II. Plus, it soon becomes obvious that there is a hidden secret in the family history, one concerning hidden treasure about which Del had known nothing but that someone else obviously did, and wanted to know more Lots more.

So good start, quirky characters and a treasure hunt. But sadly, as the book progresses the story deteriorates. Despite the exchange of in depth background information, the characters of the main protagonist fail to develop, the sudden switching of opponents loyalties seems ridiculous and the fact that no one could work out what the most valuable part of the treasure sought until late in the book was, frankly, ridiculous given the education and knowledge of the main protagonists. The very first mention should have been enough to send excited quivers down their necks.

The most interesting aspect of the story, for this reader, is the inclusion of a best selling author, also the excruciatingly executed love interest, as well as a book written by another of the, now dead, protagonists Shovel idea (sorry).

Atherton following the text of the book, narrator Greg Hernandez starts well, his warm sounding voice reading clearly and with expression; though little in the way of individual character voicing, each was still easily differentiated. However, as the story progressed, his narration, too, became more plodding and this reader found the combination of lack of depth from both author and reader made concentration difficult.

So, overall, a great start and some excellent ideas but with a continuation which, though fast and furious, failed to convince. My thanks to the rights holder who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy of All Lies, via Audiobook Boom. There was much to enjoy but it could have been a lot better.
