Reviews - What do customers think about The Big Lie (Weatherby Mysteries)?
The Big Lie Mar 21, 2003
I am a fan of mystery and suspense novels. This book fits both categories. It is well written with a likable protagonist in private investigator Artie Weatherby. He is asked to investigate a murder by the victim... This book goes in depth behind the scenes concerning the New Age movement and its more sinister elements and beliefs. It is a real eye-opener and keeps your attention from start to finish. It is the third book in a series about Artie Weatherby; the others being "Weatherby" and "Weatherby: On A Dead Man's Chest". They are both good, but "The Big Lie" is the best of the three. Unfortunately, this author is deceased, so there will be no more books in this series. However, she did write some other fiction series under the name of Janice Miller. They are good as well (P.I. Alexis Albright). I highly recomend this book to anyone who likes mysteries or suspense.
riveting and enjoyable! Jun 6, 2001
This book is quite suspenseful and Artie Weatherby is a likeable protaganist. I read through the book quickly as it is a great mystery. It says it is the first in the series, but I just picked up another book by the name of "Weatherby" and it introduces Artie Weatherby for the first time so I guess this is actually the second about this private eye! I ordered a book titled "Weatherby, On A Dead Man's Chest" also about this guy, Artie, which I am looking forward to reading. ....
Compelling, Challenging Mystery Keeps You Riveted May 28, 2001
As one other reviewer stated the plot synopsis on the back of the book got my attention and never lost it. Clever, well researched mystery unravels into a serpentine plot involving L.A.'s elite and ultra-rich, East coast mobsters, a former hitman now operating a skid row mission, a woman who's griefing husband affirms she's dead - but has suddenly appeared and asked the novel's protagonist to solve her murder........and it all hinges on the members of a secret fraternity of a New Age cult.
This novel is very pointed about the nature of New Age cults and is definitely not sympathetic, pulling no punches about its subject matter. The only liability that I can note is that the author provides no foreword, afterword or even a summary about her research - even a footnote or two would've lent more credibility to the investigative documents and books her main character uses in solving the mystery. Still a very worthwhile book and far more compelling than most above average Mystery novels you are likely to consider reading.
A Big Eyeopener Jul 19, 1999
The little summary on the back of the book caught my attention and didn't lose it until I read the last page. It is obvious that the author put a lot of time and research into the subject. The book is a look into the reality of the New Age movement and how innocent it can tend to look until one delves into it. It is written in first person so the reader feels like the main character. The writer is knowledgable in many areas and in conveying that through the main character, Artie Weatherby, a private investigater. He is hired by a woman to investigate her murder and is handed a check written exactly ten years ago on the day she was murdered...
