All Those Lies by Emmy Ellis @EmmyEllisAuthor

Book Description:

SHE TOLD HERSELF THE PAST DIDN’T MATTER. SHE. WAS. WRONG.

Detective Inspector Tracy Collier has a past she’s convinced she can sweep under the carpet. There’s a killer out there, though, who’s out to prove her theory wrong. A body turning up, gutted and dressed to appear homeless, is the killer’s calling card to lure Tracy into a world where she has to face her fears. 

It’s uncomfortable, being forced to meet her demons again, and she fights to keep the secrets locked away—but a therapist is determined to pull every single one of them out into the open, and Tracy is compelled to relive her younger years in vivid detail.

Who is killing these people—and why? Who seems to want to bring Tracy to her knees, sending her back to a place she vowed never to return? 

And who wants her to admit to all those lies?

My Thoughts:

This is the first book in the D.I. Tracy Collier crime series. Tracy’s character, as with most detective’s characters, has a troubled past, leaving them flawed. Whilst most authors tend to feed drip us information slowly over the course of a few books in a series, we get to know all the nitty gritty right in this book.

What a past Tracy has had as well. It was awful reading of her childhood and what she went though. My heart went out to her and I could understand the hardened exterior she shows the rest of the world.

Not only do we get to learn of Tracy’s past, but we also have a very sick and twisted killer on the lose killing innocent people. I was desperate to find out the who and why and when all is revealed, will it doesn’t come more shocking than in this novel.

All Those Lies is a dark and at times, disturbing read that you can’t help but be drawn right into. Tracy’s background made this even more of a compulsive and page turner of a read. I thought it was a great start to a new crime series to me and can’t wait to see what is next in the series.

All Those Lies is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).
