The Last Lie Told by Debra Webb
Finley O’Sullivan Book 1
Thomas & Mercer (August 1, 2022)
Crime Thriller/Private Investigator/Women Sleuths
From USA Today bestselling author Debra Webb comes the thrilling first installment in the Finley O’Sullivan series, featuring a legal investigator haunted by her past and obsessed with the truth.
Legal investigator Finley O’Sullivan searches for evidence the police overlooked, wading through secrets, lies, and betrayal to find answers. With the unsolved murder of her husband still very much on her mind, Finley must confront her own personal trauma on a daily basis. Lies are part of her livelihood, but they’re also the reason she can’t get justice for the man she loved.
When a man imprisoned for murder recants his confession, claiming he cleaned up the mess for his girlfriend—the victim’s own daughter—Finley takes on the case. She discovers the victim had identical twin daughters…and the sisters have very different accounts of the crime.
As she dives headlong into the twins’ traumatic past, Finley will have to contend with her own demons to get to the truth—before it’s too late.
“You take something from me. I take something from you.”
A new series from Debra Webb with a complicated plot, numerous suspects, twists galore, and an array of interesting characters. I enjoyed the relationship Finley had with good friend Matt, and her boss/godfather Jack. Finley’s mother, the Judge, is one not to forget and I hope their relationship is further exploded in future books. The plot centers around Finley and her days following leads and investigating suspects. The case is closed but there still is the unfinished business of unsolved murder of Finley’s husband which I assume continues in the next book of the series as Finley takes on another case. The Last Lie Told is a riveting read and I’m eager for book 2 releasing in 2023.
