Don’t Miss Barbara Taylor Sissel’s Newest Thriller!
The Truth We Bury, Coming 7/25/17
The Truth We Bury is a fascinating, well-written and captivating thriller.
The locals of Wyatt, Tx were in an uproar. One of their own, Becca Westin, had been brutally murdered, and the person of interest, AJ Isley, was nowhere to be found. Shea Gallagher was crushed. She was supposed to be marrying AJ in two weeks. But, after Becca, her bridesmaid, was found stabbed to death in his apartment, how could she possibly go ahead and have a wedding? Although mounting evidence was pointing to AJ as the murderer, Shea still believed her fiancee was innocent.
Lily felt strongly that her son, AJ, would never intentionally hurt a woman, especially, one as sweet as Becca. However, her son had not been himself lately. After fighting in Afghanistan, AJ came home a changed man. He was edgy, unstable, and paranoid. And, although, Lily believed her son to be innocent, she also knew that this was not the first time AJ was a suspect in a homicide investigation.
Lily was racked with guilt. She loved her child as much as any mother would, but her relationship with AJ had never been a close one. Maybe if she had been honest with AJ about her past, his life would be different now. Lily, however, was not the only one who kept secrets. Others were keeping them also, damaging secrets, even more so, than her own.
I recommend reading this engrossing and riveting novel. Thank you, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.
