TRUTH OR DEAD jpg.jpgLooking for a gripping thriller full of twists? Discover best-selling author TJ Brearton’s TRUTH OR DEAD.

A ruthless serial killer. A woman who will do anything to protect her daughters. A detective with revenge in his heart.

How far would you go to protect your kids?

On her drive to work, Heather Moss gets a phone call which will turn her life upside-down. The caller knows where her kids are, what they are wearing, and even what Heather is doing herself at that very moment. If she doesn’t do what he wants, her two little girls will die.

Then an inmate dies in the county jail. He was a witness who could have brought down notorious criminal Mario Palumbo.

Special Agent Tom Lange is trying to get his life back together after losing his brother Nick. He thinks Palumbo was responsible for the inmate’s death and maybe Nick’s too.

Tom desperately wants the evidence to point to Palumbo, but it doesn’t all add up, and soon there are more victims.

Can Tom capture a serial killer and protect Heather? He faces a terrible choice between the truth and justice.

Set in sultry Florida, this atmospheric thriller will keep you turning the pages till the stunning conclusion.

Perfect for fans of Jeffery Deaver, Robert Bryndza, Lisa Unger, Michael Connelly, or Barbara Nickless.

This is the second book featuring Tom Lange. The first in the series, DEAD GONE, is available now.

My Review

This is book 2 in the Tom Lange series but the first I have read.  It works excellently as a stand-alone.  The adrenaline pumping intrigue starts from the very first page as the question is raised: What wouldn’t you do to protect your children?

Tom is a special agent who is recovering from a traumatic case and the death of his brother.  He is called back to work when an inmate dies in a suicide watch cell.  From there his life becomes entangled with that of Heather Moss and her children.

Heather has had a difficult life and just as she is putting the pieces back together she receives a phone call that puts her whole world at risk.  She has little choice but to follow the instructions of the caller and from that point her life will never be the same again.

This is a fast paced, adrenaline pumping read that has you turning page after page.  It is full of twists and turns with a large dose of intrigue.  I kept reading chapter after chapter as I tried to work out who the person was that was causing all the deaths and it isn’t until the very end that it is revealed.

I have read books by TJ before and was far from disappointed and I was even more impressed with this one.  It has a lot going on and many aspects of human nature are discussed throughout the story.  I love Tom’s character he is a damaged individual with his own way of dealing with things and he has  skeletons in his closet that threaten to escape during the story.

This is a stunning read that left me going WOW now THAT was one brilliant read.  Definitely worth the 5 stars and I am looking forward to more from this author (in the meantime I have his backlist to read)
