    Once a Liar was an enjoyable mystery/thriller-solid 4 stars. The book centers around Peter, a defense attorney and one of the most unlikeable characters I have ever read. Peter is all about his career and himself but he is forced to to take a hard look at himself when his life suddenly...

    Excellent story! The writing was fast-paced and enthralling. Even though I knew how it would end [who did it] I couldn't put it down. This book can make you rethink how you interact with your fellow human beings. Relationships are far more important than we realize. ...

    This psychological thriller was intricately plotted and had an interesting premise. However, the journey through the book felt labored and I couldn?t connect with the main character Peter Caine. The author tries to make the case that sociopaths can be created through life experience ...

    3.5 Stars rounded down This is a hard book to rate. It does extremely well in some areas and not so much in others. It is the kind of book that is fascinating yet not too hard to put down. It starts at a good pace and is engrossing but then it quickly slows its pace and that does not ...

    Collateral damage Sociopaths live among us, and most of the time we don?t know who they are, and this is what ONCE A LIAR is all about. This is not a gory tale of serial killers, of psychopaths, but of people almost, almost like you and me. ONCE A LIAR is an extremely well-crafted...

    3.5* Peter Caine is a highly successful defense lawyer in New York. Many would call him cutthroat, ruthless. But he wasn?t always this way. Once upon a time he was a kind and loving man. A man who fell in love and simply wanted to follow the noble path of his mentors to become...

    This flips back and forth between Then and Now, then follows Peter as he begins his career and adult life and now is after Charlie is murdered and he becomes the prime suspect. Sometimes I get annoyed when a book alternates timelines but this time I enjoyed it. Almost every chapter end...

    While this novel is very well-written, I found it a bit difficult to get into it simply because none of the characters are likable. The main character, Peter Caine, and his boss are both sociopaths (and generally proud of it). Peter's love interests are clingy, desperate, and needy. Ho...

    Peter Caine is not a nice man. Not at work and not at home. He's got some mental health issues, to say the least. However, he did not murder Charlie (or did he?). Hah! Charlie's stepfather was already a sworn enemy and he's a DA so things are just bad. This nicely twisty thriller will ...

    The first-person narrator of A.F. Brady?s Once a Liar is exactly what many people assume all Defense Attorneys must be to succeed- callous, soulless and greedy. The book opens as Peter attempts to feign human emotions at the funeral of his ex-wife. He is dismissive of his caring girl...

    Peter Caine is not a nice man. You may even call him a sociopath which is perfect, really, for his job as a Manhattan defense attorney. He doesn't lose a wink of sleep when he acquits murderers, rapists, and pedophiles. Success, wealth, and recognition are the only things that Peter ca...

    I have to figure out what to say, because I don't want to say something and then inadvertently tell you how it goes. Peter Cain is a lair. How can you believe anything he says. He is a defense lawyer, in fact one of the best. On the outside he acts as though he is the most charming...

    Thank you Netgalley for providing me with an e-arc for an honest read and review. I wasn't sure what to expect with this book as I haven't always had the best luck with thrillers. This book was so good, it kept me on the edge of my seat. I got about 75% of the way through the boo...

    Short Summary Suspenseful and edgy. After I hit the half-way mark, I DID NOT want to put it down! My thoughts This book definitely makes you think about the consequences of your actions and the way you treat your family. If you love thrillers and haven?t read A.F. Brady, you ne...

    Peter Caine is a brilliant defense attorney, who mostly work with murderers, pedophiles, rapists and the like- and he has no remorse whatsoever when he acquits them. He may also look, on the surface, as the most charming, kind person. Only, he's a sociopath. He has no emotions, he's ar...
