Truth or Die is no different, and what may start out as a seemingly simple (by Katerina Diamond standards) murder of a college professor, taking a very unexpected turn, leaving the Detecting duo of Imogen Grey and Adrian Miles with a trail of bodies and series of ever more perplexing clues to unravel. Speaking of unraveling, a serious allegation threatens to derail both the investigation and possibly even Miles' career. With the relationship between the two Detectives heading into uncharted waters, this book will have fans well and truly hooked.
I don't want to say too much about the story itself as I think that you need to read to appreciate it. It's a very complex tale, with many threads being skilfully woven into a slowly emerging picture, one which may not catch you completely unawares but is still absolutely fascinating to watch. I had an inkling as to what might be at stake, but not who was behind it, and it took a while to see how the opening chapter fit into the whole story. It seemed almost completely unrelated, a bit like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle that you sit staring at, unable to tell from the lid where it's meant to fit. It's not until you nearly finish that it all makes sense and that final piece slots in, right where it belongs.
The murder in this range from the simple to the grotesque, and the victims from the manipulative to the spineless. It certainly makes me thankful that my University Professors all seemed relatively normal in comparison. the book also explores the idea of how easy it might be to manipulate young minds, those who have a fractured past or underprivileged upbringing, something which is, regrettably, believable.
I loved the way in which the author explored the ever more complicated relationship between Miles and Grey. It took somewhat of a turn in the last book, both of them seeking solace in each others company, albeit completely platonically. But with the chemistry between them, it makes for a heady mix and it is almost inevitable that a lot of this book is spent examining this dynamic.
It's a kind of coupling that both makes sense but also instills dread in me as a reader as Katerina Diamond isn't the kind of author who seems to do light and fluffy, so a happy ending cannot be on the cards even if they are both due a break. What that would then mean for our intrepid duo I wouldn't like to guess but no doubt it will make the reading very interesting. I can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out!
The plot is full of twists and turns, as in the previous books but Truth or Die also delves deep into the two main characters’ relationship to add a little more spice.
This book can be read as a stand-alone but I would thoroughly recommend reading the other titles in the series first so you can get to know Imogen Grey and Adrian Miles and understand what makes them tick . It would also be helpful to know the backstory of a couple of other characters in this this one too.
Not for the faint hearted or easily shocked, this book contains graphic descriptions of grisly murders and a great deal of suspense. So much of the latter in fact that I literally could not put it down! I cannot wait for the next book in the series to discover the fate of two fairly main characters from this (and another) book and whether a murder in the previous book will ever be uncovered.
Roll on January for the next instalment!!
I think this is the first of her books that I haven't awarded 5 stars as for me it was enjoyable but also a little unsatisfactory in a couple of areas. Firstly a large part of the book concerns the changing relationship between Miles and Grey. While this has been a thread throughout the last couple of books in this one it almost takes centre stage and for too many pages it's a distinctly un-thrilling thriller. The other is that it's almost a re-hash of her first book,Academics being butchered for various foul deeds they've committed. The similarity is strengthened by another link with that book that I won't reveal as it would be a spoiler.
I was left while reading this book that the author was running out of ideas, the plot isn't a million miles from "The Teacher" and the lead character's personal lives took up far too many pages.
I'll still read the next in the series,even my favourite authors have put out the odd below par book in various series before and redeemed themselves with the next one.
To get the most out of this book ideally you'll have been following the series.......but if you do you'll probably find this one a bit disappointing.
Not a bad book but Katrina Diamond can do better.
"Woman in the Water" already on pre-order.
