How many wrongs make a right?
Deputy Chief Quentin “Port” Porter is famous for catching the infamous Magistrate Killer, Linus Cole, whose murder spree included his best friend and partner, Miles Tate.
Port’s heroics caught the nation’s imagination, inspiring film and television, and skyrocketing his career while making him famous and wealthy.
Just one problem — Port may have lied about a key element of the case to put Cole away for crimes he was sure he’d committed.
Now, years later, as Cole is scheduled for execution, some are publicly questioning Cole’s guilt. When a new killer strikes using the same M.O. and going after targets related to the original case, Port finds himself searching for answers before the killer strikes again.
His job gets harder when Danica Tate, now a criminal psychologist, is brought in to consult on the case. Despite the fact that Port raised Danica after her father’s death and her mother’s descent into madness, the young woman won’t listen to him when he warns her away. She wants closure, but the deeper she digs, the more doubts she has — not just about the case, but about Port’s role in her father’s death.
Now Port must race against the clock to protect Danica, find the new killer, and prevent the world from learning of his MISERABLE LIES, so a killer doesn’t walk free.
Miserable Lies is a new stand-alone thriller by Nolon King, author of the No Justice series, 12, Pretty Killer, and Hidden Justice.

Great book!! It seemed a little short but what a story! This book had me on the edge of my seat! Thus book had suspense, intrigue, action and a great great who done it!! The storyline kept you intrigued and flowed nicely! I highly recommend reading this book! Its well worth reading! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!
This book is what I wish all suspense mysteries could be. I’ve read a good amount of them since I started doing reviews on a full-time basis, and I keep getting disappointed by matters such as pacing, characterization, too many characters, and/or too predictable of a turn. This book, however, had no such problems. This book? This book checked all the boxes I feel necessary to make for a perfect, closed-loop, suspense mystery.
I’m not going to rehash the plot for you. If you want that, read the blurb. Or look at other reviews that will give you that. Many other reviewers do that. I’m not one of them.
