Detective Chief Inspector Helen Lavery learnt a valuable lesson from her late father, James, a well-respected detective in his own right, when he said: Don't get upset or afraid with the death threats of an acrimonious criminal on trial. It is only the ‘shallow thoughts of a condemned man.’ But was he right? She became as successful as he in her profession, while raising her two sons, Matthew and Robert, on her own, after her husband's death ten years earlier. Life was busy, but uncomplicate [...]
Firstly, thank you to the author, Jane, publisher and Netgalley for the advanced copy. The Truth Will Out is my first book my Jane Isaac and I'm happy to say won't be my last. An enjoyable read that got off to a cracking start and remained fast and adventurous all the way through. Likeable characters and atmospheric settings from London to Scotland were well captured culminating in a satisfying ending. Have to say I didn't see one bit coming, at all!! I was quite gutted. Naughty character! - say [...]
OMG what a fantastic start to a book!Two women using Skye to communicate with each other after work, one just having come home, had her tea and switched the PC onenOMG.I was thinking of it from the other person's point of view too, she's watching all of this, horrendous.This book kept me well and truly hooked. I was entertained for several hours by Jane Isaac as she wrote cleverly and fluently page after page.I loved the hint of a little romance there from of old! really made the main DI humane. [...]
This is the second outing for DCI Helen Lavery in the fictional setting of Hampton. I hadn’t read the first book but was keen to read this ahead of meeting the author at book event later this month.I enjoyed the fiction created. The police team and Lavery’s influence over them as their boss; against the problems of senior managers everywhere who desperately want to remain hands on. In addition the author stretches her ability to maintain a work/life balance by making her a single parent with [...]

The Truth Will Out – Oh Yes It WillThe Truth Will Out by Jane Isaac is my first date with DCI Helen Lavery and I wasn’t disappointed, I found The Truth Will Out as easy to read and very enjoyable. I am not sure what other reviewers were expecting calling it predictable, so were all the Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple and Poirot books. Eva sees her best friend Naomi attacked why Skyping with her and calls an ambulance and decides it is best to get away from Hampton. While Eva escapes from Hampto [...]
I received an epub version of this book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.This was a good read, a good first effort from Jane Isaac. The main character, DCI Helen Lavery, is a single mom and daughter of a police hero that had previously placed the main bad guy in jail. Overall, the characters were believable and likable, and the plot was well-thought out.The writing was pretty strong, but the number of flashbacks in the early and middle part of the book, while necessary, sl [...]
This is a fast read that picks up in the second half. The outcome is predictable and over explained. On the plus side the main character is a likable, strong, widowed mother and there is potential for the series. Unfortunately, there are many likable, strong female DCI series to choose from that have already reached said potential. Provided by publisher
I would like to thank the publisher through NetGalley for my advanced reader's copy of The Truth Will Out by Jane Isaac.Legend Press, the publisher of The Truth Will Out, seems to promote many debut authors who have been recognized as having talent, as so far, I have been consistently impressed with the results. The Truth Will Out, which is actually the second book in a crime series by author Jane Isaac (but the first published in the UK), is a compelling mystery with a likeable heroine. The Tru [...]
"Naomi, what is it?" She whisked back to face Eva. "There's somebody in the house "A flash in the distance the hand a movement flashed over the Skype box on the screen before it went blank"Naomi! " What should she do? Call an ambulance? The police? No! Not the police. Definitely, not the police an ambulance.Only a week ago Eva and Naomi had been travelling back through France to the ferry port, after a free holiday in Milan. A holiday that had had been offered in return for delivering the car th [...]
The Truth Will Out by Jane Isaac is the second book in a crime series by the author who received wide recognition for her debut novel An Unfamiliar Murder, which was nominated as best mystery. Jane Isaac was also runner-up ‘Writer of the Year 2013’ with The Writers Bureau.The Truth Will Out is a gripping story about a single mother of two young boys who also doubles up as police officer, DCI Helen Lavery, who is single-mindedly pursuing the murder case of a young woman named Naomi. Jane Isaa [...]
For those who love a detective series, the books featuring DCI Helen Lavery are highly recommended. The opening chapter is quite scary, Eva witnesses an attack on a friend and has to flee in fear of her own life. With no idea if her friend is safe and not knowing who her to trust she is very isolated. Helen is very likeable, strong character. Single parent to two teenage boys and forced to work with an ex partner who she once trusted she is determined to find Eva and solve the case.It's good to [...]
I love a good police procedural and this falls into that category. I flew through the pages quickly, wanting to know what Eva was really fleeing from. The story unfolds from the points of view of the police investigation on the murder of Naomi, with DCI Helen Lavery leading the case and Eva as she flees and moves further away from the crime scene. Lavery is a great protagonist, she is determined to do the job properly, no matter what high level policing politics may come into play, but she does [...]
This book will grab you from the start and draw you in until the last pages, plenty of twists at a great fast pace.
'The Truth Will Out' was for me the much anticipated second novel from the author Jane Isaac. I thoroughly enjoyed her début novel 'An Unfamiliar Murder' and am pleased to say that as much as I enjoyed her first, this one was even better. Gripping and suspenseful it kept me hooked from the very beginning and is, without a doubt one of the best books I have read in a while. A page turner from the start, I loved being re-immersed into the drama-filled police world of DCI Helen Lavery, who balance [...]
Drawing you into its pages from its shock opener, this book will keep you gripped throughout. Although I somewhat guessed the ending, it still managed to hold my attention, as I read into the small hours, although I have to be honest and say that I felt there were a couple of weaknesses within the plot and the ending was somewhat rushed and out of sight. Overall though, a good page-turner.
Jane Isaac's book is about people - we are shown strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, hopes and dreams. This is particularly true for the central character Helen, and because of this the reader is interested not only in the 'whodunnit' aspect but also in the more personal story of the single mother/police officer. I hope we don't have to wait too long for the next Lavery case!
“Everything's going to be okay.”“What if it's not?”Suddenly, she turned. For a split second she halted, her head inclined.“Naomi, what is it?”She whisked back to face Eva. “There's somebody in the house”A great start to the book. Great characters especially D CI Lavery.Fast paced and a good read. Will definitely read more.
I received this as an early read via NetGalley. I really enjoyed this! I particularly like UK mystery/thrillers for their fresh (for me) approach to characters and dialogue and this was no exception. I'll be looking for more by Jane Isaac!
CompellingThis book was gripping from the very first page, impossible to put down and I didn't guess the twist! Thoroughly enjoyed. Looking forward to the next.
I couldn't get on with this, at all. There were too many unlucky happenings (no charger with new phone, didn't buy a charger, battery dead at key moment, losing a mobile phone at crucial moment) for me to take this book seriously. And the author's tendency to sum up afterwards events that we should have been reading about for ourselves as they happened, I found very annoying. It felt as if she just ran out of steam at times and decided not to bother writing the plot but to précis it for the rea [...]
DNF I just couldn't get into this book, the story or the style of writing. It wasn't engaging
I give this a 3.5 - 3.75 stars. I read the first in this series, liked it so tried this one. I like British writers when it comes to detective novels. I like the reparte between the officers and the mix of bad cops and good cops. The story kept me going. Nothing earth-shaking, but fun detective mystery.
In THE TRUTH WILL OUT, author Jane Isaac has created the beginnings of a classic British police procedural series. At the heart of the book is DCI Helen Lavery, a cop leading a team of murder investigators. She's a widow with two teenage sons, living in a shared caring arrangement with her own mother, balancing the difficulties of raising kids with a full-time demanding career. Because of that slightly different angle, Lavery as a widow, there's a slightly different feeling about the personal. T [...]
“Everything's going to be okay.”“What if it's not?”Suddenly, she turned. For a split second she halted, her head inclined.“Naomi, what is it?”She whisked back to face Eva. “There's somebody in the house”With this shock opener, the book hits the ground running and barely lets up as, horrified by what she’s seen, Eva Carradine flees to Scotland - after calling an ambulance - fearing for her own safety. The murder investigation is led by DCI Helen Lavery, though it’s quickly tak [...]
This new crime book by Jane Isaac will keep you turning the pages to find out ‘whodunit’ and why. From the very first chapter I was chilled and hooked in equal measures. I have read many ingenious crime thrillers with clever twists and gory, gloriously novel murders but never one witnessed via Skype because whilst Eve and Naomi chat via Skype one evening, Naomi is murdered and Eve is an eyewitness, a witness who knows what’s going on and who is scared and knows she has to go before she too [...]
I really enjoyed _The Truth Will Out_, Jane Isaac's first (?) police procedural featuring DCI Helen Lavery. The book is well plotted and out together in an interesting way, in sections that alternate between Helen's POV and that of the killer and a witness. Like some of Ruth Rendell's novels, we as readers know "whodunit" right from the start; we just have to wait for the detective to put all the pieces together.Helen is an engaging character: the daughter of a career detective, she now lives wi [...]
A solid read! This is the second in a series.The Truth Will Out is written from two storylines, Eva's and the investigation of the murder by DCI Helen Lavery. What I liked: Ms Isaac's writing is very descriptive and the story flows extremely well. Even though this is the second novel starring DCI Helen Lavery, I didn't feel lost. It could be read as a stand alone novel but I do feel I missed some character development. It wasn't a riveting read but it was the type of book that once started, you [...]
This is a very enjoyable police procedural featuring DCI Helen Lavery and the investigation into the shooting of a young woman, Naomi. Someone witnessed the murder and reported it, but who was it? Where are they now? How are they involved? Set in the fictional midlands town of Hampton, we follow the investigation as Helen and her team piece all the clues together and try and work out just who killed Naomi and most importantly, why. For a large part of the book the reader does actually know who t [...]
