An Eye for a Lie
by Cy Wyss
on Tour May 27 – July 27, 2019
Lukas Richter is a San Francisco police detective with a cybernetic eye and heightened senses. He can detect the same autonomous responses as a polygraph machine, so he has a leg up in determining guilt.
In An Eye for a Lie, his first full-length novel, Richter is accused of murder and the evidence seems incontrovertible, including a bullet that was somehow fired from his gun when he claims he was nowhere near the crime scene. In the background, San Francisco is aflame over Richter’s shooting of an unarmed Asian man, an incident some are calling “the Asian Ferguson.”
Can Inspector Richter convince a plucky and suspicious FBI agent of his innocence in the face of overwhelming accusations and public persecution?

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 fact that he has a cybernetic eye and can “read” people better than the average (hence the reason he quickly raised through the ranks); but by not being able to hold Tian on the first go-around proves that he is still human. Vessa took a little longer for me to like her character but the building of her character perfectly lined up with events as Wyss intended it. As an avid mystery reader, I consider myself intuitive enough to start pulling everything together by about three-quarters in. But the HUGE dirt pile Vessa was building made me question if I was on the right path to a conclusion. The book ends strong with more room to continue on to the next mystery for Richter and Vessa.
I received a complimentary copy of the book for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own!
