Where The Truth Lies

Where The Truth Lies Summary

The case was closed. Until people started dying…

DI Thomas Ridpath was on the up in the Manchester CID: a promising detective who captured a notorious serial killer. But ten years later he’s recovering from a serious illness and on the brink of being forced out of the police. Then the murders began, in an uncanny echo of his first case.

As the death count grows, old records, and bodies, go missing. Caught in a turf war between the police and the coroner’s office, Ridpath is in a race against time. A race to save his career, his marriage, and innocent lives.

When a detective disappears everything is on the line. Can Ridpath save his colleague?

A nail-biting crime thriller, perfect for fans of Mark Billingham, Peter James and D. S. Butler.

Great character! Ridpath is all too human and that is what makes him so interesting. Loved it!45


It's great so far!4 star

I'm not even ten pages in. This book is written so well. I can literally picture everything, as if I'm watching a movie. Update: 36% finished and I'm trying to understand why this book is 600 pages. Literally some chapters and scenes are completely unnecessary and do nothing for the plot.45

Great book4 star

So close to being a 5 ⭐️ rating. However, a character’s name changes from David halfway through to Tony. A little redundant at times, as well. Nonetheless, I’d still read more by this author.45
