Lies People Tell
Available from AMAZON
One of the best books I have read this year! — Amazon Reviewer.
DCI Brân Reece has PTSD: everyone at the Cardiff Bay station knows, except him. Put on leave only hours before the gruesome discovery of the first victim, he’s forced to watch events unfold from the sidelines.
But with the body count rising quickly – and the case in the hands of an inexperienced officer – Reece is compelled to take matters into his own hands.
It isn’t long before he suspects that he and the killer have crossed paths in the past. If he’s right then the identity of the ultimate target is obvious. As a serving police officer he knows he must intervene, but to do so means saving the life of the man he’s spent a career trying to take down.
Fighting authority and battling illness, can Reece rise above such a moral dilemma and do what’s right?

This is a debut Police Procedural/ Thriller by Liam Hanson.
Fishy and Onion are tasked with hiding a gun by a big time criminal Billy Creed. What should have been a simple task sets in motion a string of events that will affect many people. Fishy is mentally challenged and when he runs into a bloody corpse he finds himself suspected of murder along with Onion. DCI Reece would have realised the luckless pair were incapable of planning and carrying out a brutal murder but he has been put on gardening leave. With Adams in charge of the case the team are running around and getting nowhere.
Reece is not the most patient of men and he recently witnessed the murder of his wife. However, he is a brilliant detective albeit with his own unorthodox methods. Jenkins is his sidekick and has her own personal problems including domestic abuse. The other characters are all realistic and develop over the course of the story.
The story itself is intriguing with skeletons escaping their closets, corruption and personality clashes all playing their part.
This is a good thriller that moves along at a steadily increasing pace that I really enjoyed reading. I look forward to more from this author.
