I love police procedurals which has a bit of sci-fi in it. Luke has a cybernetic eye which could see more than a human eye and a titanium skull. A human lie detector was he and nobody can escape his laser eye.

A shooting gone wrong where the perp involved in dark deeds died but the entire shooting was rigged to show as if Luke had killed an unarmed man about to surrender. Then entered Vessa who was called to investigate the entire situation. And they discover darker plots more than what one coul

An Eye of a Lie is an interesting mystery, police procedural and sci-fi mixed together. Richter has a cybernetic eye which made him a human lie detector. I thought this gave the story an interesting level and set it a little higher than some other police procedurals I’ve read.

The characters a multi-leveled and believable. Particularly, Richter who has a bit of an offputting sense about him. However, I think that is what makes him a really unique character. I enjoyed that aspect very much.

He let him slip through his fingers once. Inspector Lukas Richter won’t let that happen again. Tian is a killer. The body count is high. Richter has him in his sights. Takes the shot. A killer is dead. But, the tabloids say he murdered him in cold blood. Tian’s weapon disappeared and it’s said he shot an unarmed man.

FBI Special Agent Vessa Drake is assigned to Richter’s case. She will gather evidence to determine if the shooting was legit. Sounds simple enough. Until another dead body is found.

4 out of 5 stars!

As a first of Cy Wyss novels for me, this certainly won't be the last! Wyss takes a modern issue we see frequently plastered all over the media -- a police officer kills an unarmed man -- and adds a unique twist. Lukas Richter is a man who is loved of despised, depending on which side of the fence you're on. FBI Special Agent Vessa Drake undertakes the investigation of either clearing Richter, or exposing him for the rogue cop many believe him to be. Richter is unique in the fac

Lukas Richter had some cybernetic enhancements added after a near fatal accident. His cyber eye is a human lie detector. His has been on the hunt for Tian for a while now and finally has him in his sights. But after he takes out Tian, Tian’s gun disappears and the media spins it to make it look like Richter killed an unarmed man.

FBI Special Agent Vessa Drake is called in to investigate if the shooting was legitimate. But things go in another direction when another body is discovered that has Ri

Tian is a killer, all-around bad person. He ends up dead and Richter is the prime suspect. His gun has been confirmed as the weapon. Enter FBI Special Agent Vessa Drake, who is assigned to his case. Vessa must make sure not to get attracted to Richter, her past history should prohibit it. Vessa tries to figure out whether Richter is the good guy or bad guy. Did he do it or was he framed? The closer Vess gets to Richter, she does try to keep things professional but is finding it difficult. More b ...more

A strong start to a crime series! 

    An Eye for a Lie is a brilliant, gripping story that hooks you from the start.


I love a good crime mystery and this definitely falls into that category for me.

    Richter is a well written, multi-layered character, although I didn't warm to him straight away but he totally grew on me.


Vessa is pretty cool, admittedly she falls for men like I fall for chocolate, but she's very insightful and has an intelligence that seems to have skipped a few members of the SF
