Liars, Cheaters & Thieves by L. J. Sellers
The crimes are as different as the night and day they occur.
The vicious murder is a case for Eugene’s violent crimes division, but the more Detective Wade Jackson and his homicide team probe into the death of Rafel Mazari–an Iraq War veteran with disturbing secrets–the more it appears that one crime’s victim may be the other’s perpetrator.
While there’s damning evidence that Mazari died at the hands of his cheating wife, a phantom Internet veterans’ charity–the same one that wiped out the heart attack victim’s bank account–keeps cropping up at every turn of Jackson’s investigation. When an identical murder claims the victim’s best friend, Jackson suspects a motive darker and more devastating than infidelity, greed, or love turned lethal.
“A good mystery, action-packed, with an unexpected solution, populated with interesting characters: What more could one ask?”–Crimespree magazine
“Liars, Cheaters & Thieves is the best thriller I’ve read in 2011. This is the fifth book in a series, but really, the books have such a great story line, that they are standalones. One of the best things about an L.J. Sellers book is I have yet to figure out the ending. This book deserves more than 5 stars, and man did she hit it out of the park with this one!” –Shelia Matthews, reviewer
“L.J. Sellers is one of the few authors I’ve read who just gets better with every book.”–Peg Brantley, author of Red Tide
