Max Larkin and Jesse Fairlane are the top two detectives in Rockton Illinois. In Lies to Die for, the second book in the Max Larkin Detective series, they are in pursuit of a killer that is branding letters into the victim’s bodies. Is it someone the victims know or is it just a random person taking out frustrations on the small community of Rockton?

Max is fresh coming off of his one month suspension for hiding things from his captain while Jesse has been holding down the fort during his absence. There hasn’t been much crime in Rockton since the Time Killer killings but Captain Perry knows he’s going to need his whole team working together to catch the person that killed a local college professor and his girlfriend.

Just as the clues start to come together there’s another murder. Max and Jesse find themselves disagreeing a lot as to who done it and why. This partnership is on the rocks and the town needs them now more than ever.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I know a book is good if it gives me chills down the spine and keeps me anticipating what will happen next – and well, “Lies To Die For” did just that.


I thoroughly enjoyed reading this fast moving crime thriller. Right from page one it is action packed, with plenty of twists and turns, and a storyline, which keeps the reader guessing, right until the end.


Overall, an interesting, well-laid out plot, paralleled with great description and character building. Highly recommended to all crime thriller lovers out there!


Todd M. Thiede has captured my imagination again. He pulled me right in with the first chapter. The twists this book takes will make your head spin and when you finally find out the killer it will blow your mind.


Very few modern cop/crime thrillers actually surprise me anymore, they all seem to be formulaic. Thiede shatters that mold and keeps you hooked and absolutely stumped until the very end.

About The Author

Todd M. Thiede is the author of “Time Killer”, a top 100 amazon best seller novel and the new Max Larkin Detective book “Lies to Die for”. “Time Killer” is a murder mystery set in the small town of Rockton, Illinois. The town is rocked by a serial killer on the loose and 2 young detectives get paired up to try and find him before he kills again. Todd would love to hear from you at

According to Kirkus reviews (the toughest book reviewer in the business):
A fast-paced thriller centered on a brutal, time-obsessed serial killer.

The expression “killing time” rarely means murder, but here, the victims of a serial killer must pay for time they’ve wasted, often with both their money and their lives. In a brutal scene from the opening chapter, an entire family is murdered after a stranger invades the family’s home and accuses the patriarch of wasting his time. Veteran cop Max Larkin is on the case. Unfortunately, he’s also been assigned a new partner; though she’s green in the field–she has “very sad eyes” and prays upon arriving at the first crime scene–she gives the hardened old detective a new perspective he never knew he needed. But as the serial killer claims more victims, a pattern emerges that neither Max nor his new partner can ignore. With brisk pacing, Thiede’s debut brims with action, violence and, occasionally, emotion. Though the book takes a while to find its heart, procedural fans will feel right at home. Larkin feels like a guy worth rooting for, despite filling the shoes of the beaten-down, grizzled, old loner cop trope a little too well. His interactions with his new partner, plus the twists and revelations regarding his past, give him enough of a pass to get readers invested in the story and looking forward to his next outing. Larkin’s story doesn’t break any boundaries, but it’ll keep crime and thriller fans wrapped up in its twisting plot, fast pace and memorable detective. Plenty of shock value and a charismatic, if formulaic, male lead.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Todd M. Thiede and ENT appreciate it.
