Book Review: Truth Be Told

A torrential two-day storm has cut off the small town of Solitude, Oregon, from the outside world. But for police officers Stevie Duncan and her husband, Zane, the ravages of nature have nothing on the nature of man. In the last forty-eight hours, a child was a mute witness to a double homicide; an unidentified body has washed up on the riverbanks; and now, at the foot of a submerged bridge, two FBI agents have been found shot to death inside their SUV. What’s worse, the young charge they were enlisted to protect has gone missing.

With the only exit out of town washed away, Stevie and Zane know that the murderer is trapped. But whatever’s going on in Solitude is far from over—because as sure as the receding water, the killer is going to resurface.

One of my favorite towns and some of my favorite characters reside in Solitude Oregon so I dived into TRUTH BE TOLD with delight. And I wasn't disappointed in the least.  While I don't recommend reading this novella all on its own as there isn't a lot of character development, it is perfect those of us that have already had the pleasure of meeting the residents in earlier books.  Ms Elliot packs a lot of tension and personality into a few pages. 

I do believe that any of my readers that have been following the goings on in Solitude will very much enjoy this novella. It will give you the opportunity to catch up on your favorites and meet a few more. 

I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions expressed within this review are my own.
