The Book of Lies by James Moloney

I want one! A book of lies, that is. The amazing book that this novel from James Moloney is centered around has the ability to discern if a person is speaking the truth or a lie. Truth can be a slippery thing though and the characters in this book soon find the the book can be an unreliable voice. I enjoyed it. There must be a sequel though as there are stories left untold when arriving at the last page. On his webpage, the author states the sequel is due in 2006. I haven't come across it yet.
James Moloney is one of my favourite writers. We teach "A Bridge to Wiseman's Cove" to our year 8s. I think "Lost Property", which I read earlier in the year was one of my favourite reads for this year. My son also enjoyed it.

I would also like to read the sequel to The Book of Lies. I very much enjoyed The Book of Lies and also haven't come across it this year. James Maloney did say it would come out this year. He also told us the plot (featured on his website: http://www.home.gil.com.au/~cbcqld/moloney/recent.htm

Anyway I'm waiting for the sequel to come out! Hurry up James!!
