APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Where The Truth Lies is the thrilling first entry in M J Lee’s DI Thomas Ridpath series. After spending time away from the police force due to serious illness, Ridpath returns to work as a new investigation begins—one which feels eerily similar to an old case, a decade earlier, that saw Ridpath capture a famous serial killer. Now, bodies are going missing, records are seemingly non-existent and time is of the essence as the body count grows. This heart-pounding thriller is full of twists and turns and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Then there’s Ridpath, in whom M J Lee has crafted a relatable main character who’s facing a series of battles—from his struggling marriage to tensions in his professional life. Every chapter propels the story forward, gathering pace until this gripping novel’s dramatic conclusion.
A solid read.
A very good story that doesn’t reveal the twist, and quite a twist it was, until the last few pages. Well written and structured, a couple of editor errors with characters first or last name changing.
