He has no idea how she got there, but one chilling fact is clear: everything points to Dan having murdered her. Someone is trying to frame him. Someone who might still be watching. In panic, he goes on the run. But even as he flees across Europe, his unknown assailant stacks up the evidence against him.
Dan is determined to clear his name and take revenge on Lisa's killer, but the culprit is closing in. And then there's the agony of his own guilty conscience. No, he didn't kill her - but is it all his fault?

"Okay, but disappointing!!"
Only the Truth is a decent suspense thriller, but author Adam Croft has done much better in his other novels. The author attempts to justify protagonist Dan Cooper's nonsensical and self destructive decisions by digging into his bad childhood, but Dan following Jess' lead makes no sense at all. On the other hand, Jess, who is either evil or a high performing psychotic, would make an excellent lead character in a psychological thriller series. She's a female version of Joe Goldberg in Caroline Kepnes' novels You and Hidden Bodies. Nigel Patterson's narration is outstanding.
"Not for me"
I thought this would be something like Gone Girl but I was wrong. It was a lackluster attempt. The main character was dreadful and annoying. The climax was anything but. And the ending a dull thud. I usually don't give bad reviews but the only thing endearing about it was the audio performance.
"Great performance. story slow at part's"
Story was a little slow and wordy. I like a little more action. Great twist at the end
