Truth Or Die By Katerina Diamond
‘Truth Or Die’ is the latest book by Katerina Diamond.
The butchered body of a professor is found in a private office of Exeter University. It is the first in a spate of horrific murders that shakes the city to its core. Who would target a seemingly innocent man, and why? DS Imogen Grey and DS Adrian Miles turn to his students for answers, but their investigation turns up no leads. Someone must know more than they’re letting on. As the body count rises, the police have to look into the past to uncover the person responsible before it’s too late. But are they brave enough to face up to the truth?
When I received a copy of ‘Truth Or Die’, I didn’t realise it was latest book in the Imogen Grey and Adrian Miles, as the branding and cover was different, so when I got stuck in, I was delighted to see their return in this dark and gruesome tale.
In their newest case, the duo are investigating the horrific murders of university professors and students and as the death toll rises so does that extremity of their deaths. But as well as trying to catch the serial killer, the pair of them are trying to work out the new shift in their relationship, as they have been the only constant in each other’s lives over the last number of years.
I read this book over the weekend and if life hadn’t gotten in the way, I may well have read it in one sitting. Katerina has a knack of cleverly writing disturbing and gruesome tales that really pull the reader in until they reach the final page and ‘Truth Or Die’ was no different.
I love Imogen and Adrian, as a crime duo they are fascinating to read as they piece the pieces together to solve the crimes but also on a personal level, we see them tentatively become closer as they consider taking their friendship to another level but are worried that it will jeopardise things. Their interactions are sweet and entertaining.
Atmospheric from the very beginning, I really enjoyed this book. It’s thrilling and written at a fast pace that leaves the reader guessing throughout. With complex and suspicious characters plus the reappearance of old faces, ‘Truth Or Die’ is a deliciously dark and twisty story that will grip the reader until the final page.
You can pre-order ‘Truth Or Die’ on Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 11th July 2019.
