Four Stars: More than just entertaining Detective Chief Inspector Helen Lavery learnt a valuable lesson from her late father, James, a well-respected detective in his own right, when he said: Don't get upset or afraid with the death threats of an acrimonious criminal on trial. It is only the ‘shallow thoughts of a condemned man.’ But was he right? She became as successful as he in her profession, while raising her two sons, Matthew and Robert, on her own, after her husband's death ten years earlier. Life was busy, but uncomplicated for her. She was well-known as an assiduous detective in the Hampton Branch of the Homicide and Serious Crime Squad. Her colleagues were trustworthy and hardworking: Superintendent Jenkins, Sergeant Sean Pemberton. However, the same could not be said of Detective Inspector Dean Fitzpatrick. He knew how to play her like a violin and she could not resist falling in love with his melodies. That was a few years ago, and she never forgave him. And now he was back to solve a case in which they would collide as well as corroborate and things are not going well at all. So much changed insidiously for all of them. The past, instead of the present, was now more relevant than ever before. It predicted the future and everyone is caught off guard, so to speak. Eva Carradine and Naomi Spence were best friends since early childhood. There was no reason for either one of them to ever distrust the other. They had a bond stronger than family. But then Eva witnessed an assault on her best friend and sharing a dangerous secret with her friend, she took off, trying to get as far away as possible. Some people were in hot pursuit, with the police not quite on par with her involvement yet. For those of you who enjoy the different British detective series on television and love murder mysteries, like I do, will appreciate this fast-moving, entertaining, light-read. However, it is serious enough to be noted, but not hitting the horror- or nightmare zones in any way.
The Truth Will Out by Jane Isaac is the second book in a crime series by the author who received wide recognition for her debut novel An Unfamiliar Murder, which was nominated as best mystery. Jane Isaac was also runner-up ‘Writer of the Year 2013’ with The Writers Bureau. The Truth Will Out is a gripping story about a single mother of two young boys who also doubles up as police officer, DCI Helen Lavery, who is single-mindedly pursuing the murder case of a young woman named Naomi. Jane Isaac created a strong character in Helen who is intelligent and passionate about her work, and like many of us who has her own flaws. The investigation into the murder has been meticulously executed with every police procedural followed to the letter. There is mystery, suspense, drama and action all over the book. While the novel is intricately designed, it is a character-driven story with Helen Lavery shuffling between her profession as a police officer and her duty as a mother, at times, believably failing on both fronts. What is apparent as you browse through the pages of the book is the sheer brilliance of the author who writes a distinctly flowing book which is tough to put down.
