Welcome to an exclusive cover reveal for Truth Will Out, the third instalment of A.D.Garrett’s crime series featuring DCI Kate Simms and forensic expert Professor Nick Fennimore. Truth Will Out brings together the combined writing talents of Margaret Murphy ( author of nine internationally acclaimed psychological thrillers) and Helen Pepper, a Senior Lecturer in Policing, former Crime Scene Manager, and Forensic Consultant. The Simms/Fennimore series is a must read for fans of psychologically intriguing, and forensically aware crime thrillers, and the Raven has very much enjoyed the previous two outings…
A mother and daughter are snatched on their drive home from a cinema. The crime has a number of chilling similarities to a cold case Professor Nick Fennimore had been lecturing on. Then Fennimore begins receiving taunting messages – is he being targeted by the kidnapper?
Meanwhile, a photograph emailed from Paris could bring Fennimore closer to discovering the fate of Suzie, his own daughter, now missing for six years. He seeks help from his old friend, DCI Kate Simms, recently returned from the US. But Kate is soon blocked from the investigation… A mother and child’s lives hang in the balance as Fennimore and Simms try to break through police bureaucracy to identify their abductor.
‘Simms and Fennimore are complex, compelling and just plain marvellous.’ Jeffery Deaver

DCI Kate Simms is on the fast track to nowhere. Five years ago she helped a colleague when she shouldn’t have. She’s been clawing her way back from a demotion ever since. Professor Nick Fennimore is a failed genetics student, successful gambler, betting agent, crime scene officer, chemistry graduate, toxicology specialist and one-time scientific advisor to the National Crime Faculty. He is the best there is, but ever since his wife and daughter disappeared he’s been hiding away in Scotland, working as a forensics lecturer. Read Raven’s review here
