Three Truths and a Lie
(Detective D.D. Warren #7.5)
Boston Detective D.D. Warren faces her most brutal adversaries yet—a class of jaded thriller writers—in New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Gardner’s exclusive e-Book short story.
In Lisa Gardner’s second short story, after the New York Times bestseller The 7th Month, Detective D.D. Warren takes on her most intimidating assignment yet: a fifty-minute class meant to educate a horde of bloodthirsty thriller writers on the ways of actual police work. Yet sometimes life really does imitate fiction, as D.D. takes the writers through the reality of one of her most twisted cases—a case that involves a seedy motel room, drugs, prostitution . . . and a severed leg.
With Gardner’s trademark suspense, sharp observations, and thrilling storytelling, Three Truths and a Lie is a fascinating chapter in D.D.’s storied career. Includes an early look at Lisa Gardner’s next novel of suspense, Find Her, coming February 9, 2016.
A fun and interesting look at a crime scene and the processes the police establish at the scene of the crime – I can feel the author smiling as she writes. Cheekily she includes or sometimes alludes to famous crime fiction writes as part of the lecture audience, Lisa Gardner really is enjoying writing this short story and at the same time cleverly promoting her next book. Does she realise that in Western Australia we hold a similar series of lectures for authors, readers, writers and various “experts”, CrimeScene WA where indeed blood splatter, evidence, poisons, famous crimes etc are open for discussion. Love the connection here.
