Summary

Eva is horrified when she witnesses an attack on her best friend. She calls an ambulance and forces herself to flee Hampton, fearing for her own safety.

DCI Helen Lavery leads the investigation into the murder. With no leads, no further witnesses, and no sign of forced entry, the murder enquiry begins. Slowly the pieces of the puzzle start to come together. But as Helen inches towards solving the case, her past becomes caught up in her present.

Someone is after them both. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what they want. And as the net starts to close around them, can Helen escape her own demons as well as help Eva to escape hers?

Good story but it seems the author ran out of idea

What did you like best about The Truth Will Out? What did you like least?

Jane has got better at writing about her characters as well as developing a good story line

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

For me this is where the book lets itself down. To me it's as though the author either ran out of time for a publishing deadline or even worse just simply ran out of ideas of how best to end the story.

Which character – as performed by Cathy Sabberton – was your favourite?

Probably the DCI

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No

Enjoyable

Not an exceptional read but my first for this author and I think I will read another as the heroine detective is written well. Good story with an excellent twist and a cast of believable characters. An easy listen with excellent narration.
