Book Description

3 July 2014

Detective Chief Inspector Kate Simms is in the United States on sabbatical with St Louis PD. She is working with a 'method swap' team, reviewing cold cases, sharing expertise. Simms came to the US to escape fallout from her previous investigation working with forensic expert Professor Nick Fennimore. However Fennimore also happens to be in the States on a book tour and is engineering his trip to get down to St Louis - the last thing Simms wants . . .

But a call for help from a sheriff's deputy in Oklahoma distracts the professor: a mother dead, her child gone. Fennimore's quick mind rapidly gets to work, and gradually draws the conclusion this might not an isolated case. How many other young mothers have been killed, their murders unsolved, their children unaccounted for - and what of Simms' cold case in St Louis for instance?

In Believe No One, A. D. Garrett delivers a gripping sequel to match Everyone Lies, where the chills race in the heat in America's mid-West. And once again the tension rises to match the climbing temperature between the dynamic pairing of Simms and Fennimore.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid second book... 1 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Having reviewed the first collaboration between crime author Margaret Murphy and forensic scientist Professor Dave Barclay, Everyone Lies , here last year, I was looking forward to Believe No One, the second in the series. Relocating DCI Kate Simms and forensic expert Professor Nick Fennimore to the USA for the duration of this book was a brave and original move, so was interested to see how effectively this would work…

Without a doubt, all the essential tensions and unspoken chemistry between the main protagonists, so evident in Everyone Lies, shone through and the characterisation of Kate and Nick was pitch perfect. I like the more dysfunctional aspects of their characters very much, Nick’s through the loss of his wife and child, and Kate through the pressures of her professional and personal life as a high ranking female detective. I also loved the premise of Kate hot-footing it to America at the earliest opportunity, to provide some distance from her suffocating relationship with Nick, only for Nick to appear in a true ‘tah-da’ fashion, like a genie from the bottle. The ramifications of the intensity of their investigation in the first book, and Nick’s continuing torment over his own personal tragedy, provide a solid base for the development of their of their relationship throughout the course of their American sojourn. Sometimes, I did want to give Nick a good shake, as he does come across at times as too much of a little wounded puppy, rather than adhering to the adage that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and somehow undermining his professionalism as a forensic psychologist of some distinction.

I read the first book Everyone Lies by the same joint authors and loved it. Enjoyed this just as much, well written and creepily atmospheric tale of murder and missing children. Even though it is set in the States not the UK, like the first book, it still conjures up a real sense of place and menace. Only thing is I do hope the back-plot stories of Nick Fennimore's own missing daughter and the mystery surrounding computer expert Josh do eventually come to some kind of conclusion in future novels and don't drag on (yes I know real life isn't like that but this is a book!) However this is a minor quibble; a really riveting read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic plot, tension 18 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read an awful lot of books. Believe me when I say this one has it all. Unputdownable! Fantastic plot , tension, located in both USA and Scotland it creates a backdrop of interest and contrast, the ongoing drip fed revelations between the two protagonists is sizzling off the page... and the central plot was delicious!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it - despite the transatlantic move!! 18 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having enjoyed the first book in this series which was set in Manchester I was slightly perturbed to find the main characters Nick Fennimore and Kate Simms had been relocated to America for 'Believe No One'. However I needn't have worried as the transition was painless and the sense of place, which was so strong in 'Everybody Lies', remained. A new cast of characters, detailed in a list at the start of the book, were cleverly introduced and each had their own voice to avoid confusion. The book is intricately plotted and pacey with a satisfying denouement. There is perhaps less forensic science than in the first novel and more politics between the law enforcement teams attempting to work together. This works well and adds to the sense of urgency to solve the crimes. The ongoing tension between Nick and Kate and the back story behind the mysterious Josh have yet to resolved - I am eagerly awaiting the next novel in the series.
