The Truth Will Out Goes Audio – #WIN a signed version

Audio BookI am very excited to be able to share with you the chance to #WIN a signed version of an audio book by Jane Isaac! Please see below for details of the competition, written by Jane herself.

‘First, I’d like to thank readandrated.com for taking part in this giveaway.

The audio version of my second book, The Truth Will Out, was released on 17th March 2015. The unabridged box set contains eight CDs spanning almost nine hours and is read by Cathy Sabberton, whose bio claims numerous theatre and TV credits including Emmerdale and Cold Feet.

This is my first audio version and I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I placed it in the machine and pressed play. Initially it did feel rather strange to hear my own words read aloud. But Cathy’s beautifully engaging reading voice quickly allayed any nerves. Very soon I became lost in the story and it felt like I was listening to a play, or ‘Book at Bedtime’ on Radio 4. I’m truly delighted with the results.

To celebrate its release, I’d like to give away one signed version. Entry into the prize draw is simple: just email me your details via the contact page on www.janeisaac.co.uk. The closing date for entries is 24.4.15 and the winning entry will be picked out at random and announced on my blog on 27.4.15.’

An Unfamiliar Murder by Jane Isaac

Unfamiliar Murder5 Stars from me!

What an absolute gem of an author Jane Isaac is, I am so glad to have found her books and honestly don’t feel I can fault a single thing (ok, except the cover).

Isaac is, in my view, an astonishingly accomplished writer. Her stories are virtually flawless in their pace, content and style.

I read her second book, The Truth Will Out, before I read this one and for me it didn’t spoil the books in any way but it would obviously make more sense to read them in the correct order if you can.

I read lots and lots of crime thrillers and genuinely think that Jane Isaac is up there with the big hitters, she had me led completely up the garden path with ‘who dunnit’ which is a feat in itself and I usually know by about a third of the way in! In An Unfamiliar Murder though I got it wrong right up until the end.

Fabulous book, absolutely loved it, can’t wait to read more.

Synopsis:

Arriving home from a routine day at work, Anna Cottrell has no idea that her life is about to change forever. But discovering the stabbed body of a stranger in her flat, then becoming prime suspect in a murder enquiry is only the beginning. Her persistent claims of innocence start to crumble when new evidence links her irrevocably with the victim… 

Leading her first murder enquiry, DCI Helen Lavery unravels a trail of deception, family secrets and betrayal. When people close to the Cottrell family start to disappear, Lavery is forced into a race against time. Can she catch the killer before he executes his ultimate victim?

 

The Truth Will Out by Jane Isaac

Truth Will Out

5 stars from me!

Love, love, love this book!

I bought The Truth Will Out after seeing @NovelBird recommend it on twitter. Actually she was mentioning to @JaneIsaacAuthor how much she was enjoying it and I always think there is nothing better than a personal recommendation, so I bought it too.

I’m so glad I did. What a great book. It literally grips you from the first few pages and doesn’t let go.

I lovedthe DCI Helen Lavery character, hated Dean’s character and enjoyed the whole host of characters in between.

I thought The Truth Will Out was a very accomplished book with a great story line, plus additional side plots, which kept me on my toes the whole way through. Several nice little twists and turns and a great insight into the life of a female DCI, makes a change for it to be a woman in the lead role in books like this one.

I haven’t read anything by Jane Isaac before but I certainly look forward to finding more of her books now.

 

Synopsis:

“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…”

Eva is horrified when she witnesses an attack on her best friend. She calls an ambulance and forces herself to flee Hampton, fearing for her own safety. DCI Helen Lavery leads the investigation into the murder. With no leads, no further witnesses and no sign of forced entry, the murder enquiry begins.

Slowly, the pieces of the puzzle start to come together. But as Helen inches towards solving the case, her past becomes caught up in her present.

Someone is after them both. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what they want. And as the net starts to close around them, can Helen escape her own demons as well as helping Eva to escape hers?
