Young girls are being kidnapped into a brothel to service Chicago’s elite. When someone from Doyle Flanagan’s past requests his assistance, he becomes a reluctant detective into the seedy underworld of human trafficking, brothels, and cover-ups. When Cady’s sister becomes a victim, time is running out to solve the crime. Is it revenge against Doyle or happenstance? Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is, by far, my favorite out of the series. It truly stands on its own and would not require any additional reading.
Review: A Wicked Truth might be called a good old 'Who Done It'. While on the surface the story is about Cady and Doyle 's preparations for their upcoming nuptials, Doyle is doing a favor for a friend, trying to find a missing sister. In the process, this digs up all kinds of things in Doyle's past that are best left buried. Cady handles it all with much more grace than I would, even now when I'm supposed to be 'wise' and 'mature' although at some points I'm not sure I wouldn't have said, 'See ya' and been out of there so fast it would have made his head spin! Though it all, however, their love seemed to grow until they reached that pivotal point where it was time to pee or get off the pot. What did they choose? Ah now, where would the fun be in me telling you? It's a mystery after all! I have to say, nothing had prepared me for the fact that this is actually part of a series - third book actually. Just like the Nancy Drew Mysteries before her, this is the Cady Delafield Series. Each book stands alone so it was no problem that I didn't know. I am a huge fan of history and that is part of what interested me in A Wicked Truth. Set in 1800's Chicago, it was true to date, style, character and dress. Nothing Joyce had the characters day or do jolted me out of the era and I really appreciated that. It was just an overall well written and enjoyable book.
