Reviews - What do customers think about White Lies?

A shocking, compelling, highly recommended work  Jan 4, 2003
White Lies by Michael R. Salinas is a compelling and adroitly written tale of murder and deceit. When law-school alumnus John Abrams returns home to his Texas small town, he learns that his uncle has been killed and his father has been arrested for the murder. In defending his father, John is gradually exposed to a myriad foundation of lies that has colored his family's past for years, in this shocking, compelling, highly recommended work of mystery and suspense.
A legal thriller about a lawyer's first murder case  Mar 11, 2002
White Lies is Texas lawyer Michael Salinas first foray into fiction writing. It is obvious that Salinas is a connoisseur of good legal thrillers - I believe he has read Grisham, particularly The Chamber & The Rainmaker & Turow's Burden of Proof & Richard North Patterson Final Judgment - the influence of their works is clearly seen in White Lies.

John Abrams returns to his family home in Texas soon after finishing law school. He intends to be there just for a couple of weeks before he joins some hi-fi legal firm or other. However, plans go wry when John's uncle is murdered & John's father is arrested as the prime accused. Now it is up to John to defend his father - what follows is the young lawyer's struggle to find answers, & he soon finds that some questions are better left unanswered.

This is a good, promising debut - Salinas knows how to write a good thriller - but there is nothing unique or special about White Lies. It follows the pattern & plot seen & read in many other novels. The plot setting is reminiscent of John Grisham's The Chamber & Rangelly Wallace's No Defense - the young lawyer's probe into hidden family secrets is similar to the plot setting in Richard North Patterson's The Final Judgment.

The book might suffer from improper marketing. The paper & print are not of the best quality, the small font size makes reading hard & in this modern day world where books are judged by their covers, bad marketing will surely discourage the average reader.

All-in-all a fresher reader of legal thrillers might enjoy the book, but as a seasoned legal thriller bibliophile, I found the book ordinary, just ordinary.
