Peter Tyler, an ex-cop, works for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Recently he lost his badge, family, and house because of his “incident” on duty. Now looking to redeem himself, and get started on his new career, Peter and the NTSB suspect foul play when a bloody boxcar is turned up. Tyler is chosen for the job and is taking a new turn in his life.

Umberto Alvarez is a suspected terrorist but was not always. Alvarez’s family was killed in a car while crossing train tracks. Northern Union Railroad, the railroad company, covered up the deaths and said the driver was not paying attention. Alvarez is aware of the truth and wants revenge and an apology.

A railroad killer is on the loose and it’s only a matter of time before they find him. The killer is cunning, sly, smart, and is always a step ahead.  How long can the rail company cover-up the truth about a huge publicity stunt?

Parallel Lies is action packed, suspenseful and always drawing you in to read more. Ridley Pearson does an excellent job of giving the reader a sense of relation to the main characters. The book is a medium difficulty but may be tough for younger, inexperienced readers. Some content is not really meant for young readers. I thought the book was a great story and was very exciting. If you like this book you should read some of Pearson’s other novels. Anybody who likes a little adventure will enjoy this book.
