The Truth Will Out by Jane Isaac
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
'The Truth Will Out' was for me the much anticipated second novel from the author Jane Isaac. I thoroughly enjoyed her début novel 'An Unfamiliar Murder' and am pleased to say that as much as I enjoyed her first, this one was even better.
Gripping and suspenseful it kept me hooked from the very beginning and is, without a doubt one of the best books I have read in a while. A page turner from the start, I loved being re-immersed into the drama-filled police world of DCI Helen Lavery, who balances being a single mother of teenage boys along with solving criminal cases while also trying to deal with her own personal dilemma's. Ms Isaac has written a well rounded character who from the onset, will have you identifying with her on a very human level.
The novel begins when Eva witnesses her best friend Naomi being attacked on screen in front of her while they Skype together and when she sees no other option, goes on the run and into hiding. Add to the plot drug smuggling and murder, a psychopath, a little bit of romance on the side and a detective who will not stop until she gets to the truth, you have a story that will keep you reading late into the night.
I had much praise for Ms Isaac's first novel but I believe she has really come into her own with this second one. She has proved herself an accomplished author who I have no doubt will develop a strong following if she hasn't already, and I for one am thoroughly looking forward to her next novel as well as reading a whole lot more on the crime and intrigue in the world of DCI Helen Lavery.
