Meet Amy Winter: Detective Inspector, daughter of a serial killer.

DI Amy Winter is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her highly respected police officer father. But when a letter arrives from the prison cell of Lillian Grimes, one half of a notorious husband-and-wife serial-killer team, it contains a revelation that will tear her life apart.

Responsible for a string of heinous killings decades ago, Lillian is pure evil. A psychopathic murderer. And Amy’s biological mother. Now, she is ready to reveal the location of three of her victims—but only if Amy plays along with her twisted game.

While her fellow detectives frantically search for a young girl taken from her mother’s doorstep, Amy must confront her own dark past. Haunted by blurred memories of a sister who sacrificed herself to save her, Amy faces a race against time to uncover the missing bodies.

But what if, from behind bars, Grimes has been pulling the strings even tighter than Amy thought? And can she overcome her demons to prevent another murder?


Truth and Lies

Spoiler-Free Review:



Caroline Mitchell is a seasoned author in her own right, having previously written an entire police-procedural series, which I have never read. However, when given the chance to join the Blog Tour for her newest release, ‘Truth and Lies’, I couldn’t resist.

I found the plot enthralling, especially for a police procedural, which I am usually not the biggest fan of. However, this was a FAST moving thriller, which kept you on the edge of your seat! The race against time to find a missing teenage girl kept you needing to keep reading, and I absolutely devoured this one.

The jokes between Gladys and Paddy made it all the more enjoyable, and I actually laughed out loud at the line: “I want my headstone to offer free Wi-Fi, then they’ll come and visit me more often”.

Overall, I’d highly recommend that you check ‘Truth and Lies’ out if you’re looking for a new crime/thriller fiction to get into, especially as this is only the beginning of, what is shaping up to be, an incredible series.


I received this E-Arc in exchange for an honest review and would like to say thank-you to Amazon Publishing for providing me with an advanced-readers-copy of this book.
