Former NYPD cop Anna Valentine just landed her first homicide case—the grisly double murder of a wealthy young couple. But it couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Recovering from recent personal tragedies, the young police officer just moved with her traumatized child to the suburbs where she hoped to pursue a quiet life and heal. To complicate matters, although she’s sworn off men until she and her son are happy and whole again, Anna feels the pull of attraction to the handsome twin brother of one of the victims, a man who has yet to be crossed off the suspect list.
Teaming up with lead detective Jerry Kreeger, a 57 year-old veteran cop who’s lonely, broke, and close to burn out, Anna chases a crafty killer and ultimately exposes a family’s shocking secrets that will rock a town.
Dead Lies by Cybele Loening is a secret-driven, twisty murder mystery that I couldn’t figure out until the very end. Loening creates a story full of characters that you just connect to instantly. All the characters and their lives are intricately woven together. The author does a masterful job of writing a mystery spattered with clues that don’t become obvious until she wants them to. This was very well written and I cannot wait to read more from Cybele Loening. I am highly recommending Dead Lies by Cybele Loening to anyone who enjoys a good mind-bending murder mystery with some police procedural thrown in.
I listened to the audiobook and read an eBook of Dead Lies by Cybele Loening. The audiobook was incredibly narrated by Keely J. Wolter. I was thoroughly impressed with her narration skills and she made the story that much more enjoyable. I was pulled in right away. Keely tells the story in a way that makes it even more than what it was on its own – and that’s the sign of a wonderful narrator.
