In ‘Truth Stained Lies’ three sisters fight to free their brother

Truth Stained LiesWhen Jay is framed for the murder of his ex-wife by a man dressed like a clown, his sisters, Cathy, Juliet and Hope must work together to find the real murderer.  With Jay’s unbelievable story, the police follow the wrong clues leaving the sisters to work as part-time private investigators to solve the crime.

Inevitably, as the sisters get closer to the truth, danger closes in on them.  Can they convince the police that they have arrested the wrong man?

As “Truth Stained Lies” opens, we meet Cathy Cramer, a former lawyer turned blogger who writes commentary on high-profile homicide cases.  She finds a threatening note on her car.  When her former sister-in-law is murdered, her first thought is that the crimes are related.  Though the letter is mentioned several times throughout the book, the issue is never resolved.  Will there be a follow-up book, or will readers be left hanging?  I am a reader who doesn’t like loose ends, so I’m hoping a future book will answer the question of who sent the threatening note to Cathy.

Somewhat predictable, Terri Blackstock tries to throw readers off unsuccessfully.  It is relatively easy to solve the murder though the motive is at first ambiguous.   Not light reading by any means but definitely a quick read.
