Throughout the book, we are subjected to the hero's every waking thought. That made the book very boring, and typical of female authors. Male readers want a little action, and not continuous feelings.

What more in life coud Jack possibly need? He's got a beautiful wife, two great sons and is an excellent ADA. Now he's been approached to run for the District Attorney position and after some resistance decides to go for it. All the while fighting his feels for his good friend Jenny. One night both Jack and Jenny make a horrible mistake. One that will eventually come back to haunt both of them. When Jenny is arrested for a crime and can not provide an alibi, Jack must risk losing it all by saying he spent the night in question with her. Jacks wife tosses him out - Jenny disappears and he's left wondering how he could have let his life take such a downward turn. A great legal thriller filled with sex, lies and betrayal that isn't so much about "who" but as "why". A fast paced read with a twist at the end that no one will see coming.

Jack Hilliard is the fair-haired boy of the St. Louis DA's office and with the imminent retirement of his boss is on the fast track to become his successor. With the perfect family he's living the charmed life, but soon that dream existence becomes a nightmare and as he spirals downward he wonders if he will ever see the light again. It's a rare author who's words on a page can deliver such intense emotional feelings in her readers. And that's exactly what you'll find in Julie Compton's debut novel Tell No Lies published in 2008. Julie gives us a realistic story line with her politico/legal drama. Her dialogue is vivid and witty interspersed with dramatic court-room legalese, dialogue so intense you will find yourself exhibiting the same emotions as the characters in this prosecutory emotionally charged novel. And oh my, her characters, they are wonderful, interesting, realistic and three dimensional. They make the story and as she introduces us to each one it becomes obvious as their importance in the telling of the tale, especially her charismatic protagonist Jack as this story is mostly his. Her scenes are described with such precision that you can easily imagine yourself a fly on the wall. There are some love scenes that she handles with dignity and raw emotion. If you love great fiction, awesome storytelling, brilliant dialogue and phenomenal characters I think this novel will fit the bill. If you're a fan of court-room or crime drama, this is it. If you love literary fiction it's here too. If you just want to escape in some one else's make believe troubles and wallow in their dilemmas this is what you want. Be sure to check out Julie's brand new novel Rescuing Olivia.

Fellow ITW Debut Author, Julie Compton, begins her writing career in fine style with a fast moving, quick read. What begins as an innocent kiss, takes a turn with deep reaching consequences. Without giving the story away, I'll say that the story's protagonist, Jack, is in for a soul searching ride. Torn between two options ¿ both damaging and potentially devistating to his career and family ¿ he will let his conscience guide his actions. A good solid read with authentic courtroom action.

The main character, Jack, is someone we can all relate to on some level in that he strives to be a good person by doing what's "right" in a world that does not always reward such behavior.

Jack's attempts to make "good" decisions while struggling to come to terms and deal with life's daily demands of job and family, pressures to compromise personal beliefs in order to succeed, and a unavoidable physical tempatation(a hottie at work Jack lusts after - great sexual tension scenes) makes for a very intriguing character. Add in the plot involving a murder mystery with a twist and you get one of my favorite books this year.

I found myself admiring, hating, and feeling sorry for Jack all in the same book. We discussed at my book club and it was interesting how readers either end up hating or loving Jack - no one in between.

Great read!

Reminds me of a book called six grade secrets in which there is a girl and she starts a secret club and the only way you can get into ths club is if you have a write of passage and the only way you can get that passage is if you have a tribute. Anyway there was a girl the leader of the club who actully never told a lie not even once and she was cute. But there were people that were well what should i say jelous of her because of her beauty and the club was called pig city. Now let me tell all of you ladies out a story i am 13 years old.
