Reviews:

​

“Rob Lenihan's first novel might have come off the pages of the crime beat he covered as a police reporter. But Born Speaking Lies gives him the opportunity to create fully fleshed mobsters and a lone hero, Billy the Kid, trying to get away from them and live in a small town with a good-hearted woman. But vendettas must be paid and the reader watches in horror as a confrontation nears.The writing transcends the genre, never sacrificing white knuckle suspense.”

— Sonia Pilcer, author of The Last Hotel

​

“Rob brings all the excitement of police reporting to his debut novel. He puts readers through their paces at breakneck speed. And that’s no lie.”

— Jeff Widmer, author of Mr. Magic and Tourist in Paradise
