In Void of Lies is an interesting tale of deception, adultery and lies in the all too common world of politics. To the outsider, Justin and Tyra Powell have a great marriage. They both have a successful career, beautiful home and they are a power couple. Tyra is a prosecutor and Justin is a lobbyist for Senator Fitzgerald, who needs to get his healthcare bill passed.
Since Justin is always on the road, Tyra turns to a colleague for a listening ear and affection as her husband, Justin seems to care less what Tyra wants and needs. Trying to make things right in his marriage and unbeknownst to him of his wife’s affair, Justin gets a job that keeps him local and home every night to spend time with his wife. During the day, he is trying to cover up his boss’ lies and by night, his wife Tyra is trying to cover up hers.
As time goes on, lies are revealed. Hearts are broken. Blackmailing rears its ugly head. Will Justin be able to handle the pressure of work and home? Will Tyra’s affair be revealed in an unlikely way?
This story has a good plot although it was predictable at times. Some of the language used by supposedly educated Justin seemed over the top and there were grammatical errors that could not be overlooked. I would have liked the story to develop Tyra and Justin’s character a little more to see how and why they got to the point they are now. Maybe a little more history on them. Also, there were some conflicts in time. The story spoke of 11:48pm but then it describes a lunchtime scene.
