‘Where the Truth Lies’ by M.J.Lee

‘The case was closed. Until people started dying…’

An engaging premise for this new police procedural: a DI who has returned to work after being diagnosed with cancer, which is now in remission, and is sent on secondment to the coroner’s office. However, the likeable, DI Tom Ridpath finds his new case brings him back to a previous serial killer conviction which is now in doubt. At times this police thriller is fast-paced and thoroughly engaging; there’s some really interesting characters emerging and the working relationship with Ridpath and his Coroner boss is one that could really develop. It’s well plotted and uses forensic and investigative procedures to drive the plot forward to a tense but satisfactory conclusion. I’d look forward to reading a sequel.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for this arc.
