Truth And Lies by Caroline Mitchell

Can You Imagine Learning Your Parents Are Serial Killers?  

This is the first book in a new series featuring DI Amy Winter. 

As if the unexpected death of Amy's father, who she has loved and tried to emulate by going into law enforcement, isn't enough, she receives a letter that is even more upsetting. The letter is from a notorious serial killer named Lillian Grimes. Both Lillian and her husband, Jack, were sent to prison years ago for killing several young girls and women. As Amy reads the letter from Lillian Grimes she learns that both Lillian and Jack are her biological parents.  

Amy is well aware that she was adopted, but since it happened at a young age, she's been able to block past memories. Her biological mother, who she received the letter from, has agreed to reveal the spots where three of their earlier victims are buried in return for a few tasks directed by the twisted psychopath. Amy, the prominent DI, has no desire to have her true bloodline revealed, but at the same time is torn between wanting to do the right thing and protecting herself.

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: Absolutely nothing

What I Liked Most: This is an excellent author who knows how to develop characters, gives just the right amount of description, and keeps the story moving. Perhaps because Caroline Mitchell is a former police detective, the story rings true in many ways. 

This is the first book I've read by Mitchell, but I'm sure it won't be the last. (I just checked to see what her books cost, since this copy was given to me for review purposes. Surprisingly, they are quite affordable, especially if you have Kindle Unlimited. That makes me even more excited to recommend this book.)

Truth and Lies was very hard for me to put down, plus kept me jumping for answers.  If you like thrillers you won't go wrong with this book! I highly recommend it.
