Interesting concept and unique characters bring life to the first book in a new DC Brennan crime series. Dr. Ashleigh Taylor is a forensic pathologist who determines what Senior Constable Brennan believes is a suicide, is actually the murder of an elderly woman in her home. Her death changed the life of her wealthy son, especially when someone now seemed to be after him. Twists and turns keep the story moving forward to the surprise ending. We are looking forward to the next DC Jill Brennan episode.This review is based on a complimentary copy of Secrets and Lies provided by the publisher in exchange for our honest opinion.

I was pulled right into this book from the very first chapter. The murder case is filled with mystery and misleading paths that kept me intrigued and motivated. The further I read the more curious I was to unravel this case alongside Nick and Jill. They were two exhilarating characters that moves mountains to solve any case. I enjoyed the development of the story and it was well integrated with adjoining criminal cases. Surely, this tale had me hooked!

It’s always interesting reading a story set in your own home town. And Gina Amos knows Sydney well as we saw in her first book, “Secrets and Lies”. Her vivid and evocative descriptions of the crime, set against the backdrop of a cosmopolitan city, add to the excitement of her crime writing. The characters are well drawn and authentic. The added complexity of the interpersonal-relationships and the thematic device of art fraud, keep the reader engaged to the end. Another good read from Gina Amos!
