What can I write that hasn't already been written by the previous reviewers??? This book is outstanding, especially considering that TJ Cooke is a new author. Once I had started reading, I just couldn't put it down. The characters truly come to life, the plot is believable, full of twists and turns and I loved the story from start to finish - as I wrote earlier - I just couldn't put it down! I would thoroughly recommend this book to any reader who enjoys a good wholesome thriller or crime story and can't wait for the sequel. I promise you, you will enjoy it!

With his first novel, TJ Cooke introduces us to Jill Shadow, the accidental lawyer with a past she wants to stay hidden. But despite her best efforts, it catches up with her at the speed of a hurtling train and threatens not only her but her daughter Hannah. The various strands of both her personal and professional life slowly become inextricably linked until all becomes clear as the book reaches its climax. This a crime thriller with soul and a page-turner to boot. I am sure this is not the last we'll see of this tenacious lawyer. Highly recommended!

`Kiss and Tell' introduces us to Jill Shadow, a feisty, committed yet warm hearted young lawyer who has had to struggle to make it.

In what I hope is the first of many adventures Jill finds herself in a safe house, with her life threatened and her daughter missing. Her first person narrative deals with this in `real time', but she also delves into her past to help her judge the characters she has come to know, any of whom may have some involvement in her real time predicament.

These characters are many and colourful and include her ex, Jimmy, who has recently been released from a long prison sentence, her new client Bella Kiss, her client's friend `Sally', her two bosses Craig Burns and Garret McMahon, the mysterious `suited man' and a number of other shady souls who may have links with a major drugs gang.

The stakes are raised when an undercover police officer is found murdered, on the face of it by a drugs gang... but all is not quite as it seems, and as the plot thickens it's difficult to tell who the goodies and the baddies really are.

This is an ingenious tale that not only hits the spot as a crime thriller but also makes us question just who is really profiting from our current drug laws.

A really enjoyable and entertaining read...

This author impressed me with his first book, Defending Elton - and his second book doesn't disappoint. I'm incredibly impressed how he writes from a female perspective so believably and the plot in this book is clever and keeps you reading to find out what happens! I can highly recommend TJ Cooke for a captivating read!

I read a lot of crime novels, but what I liked most about Kiss and Tell was that it was a real departure from the rather tired approach of the detective with a drink problem. Jill Shadow is a real gem of a character. She reminded me of Kay Scarpetta, only more believable and real.
Kiss and Tell opens with Jill, a criminal lawyer, being kept in a police safe house. With her own life at risk, she discovers her daughter has also disappeared. As she agonises over the fate of her child, which she can do nothing about, Jill tries to make sense of what has happened. She begins to realise that a drugs case she has taken on, and her ex Jimmy, a reformed criminal just out of prison, could be connected.
Kiss and Tell is very well written, and a real cut above other crime novels. The author conveys the claustrophobic tension of a police safe house brilliantly. The characterisation, not just of Jill Shadow, but her partners at the law practice as well as her ex is excellent. I liked the insight into the world of criminal lawyers the author gives us. The plot also throws up some unexpected twists that I didn't see coming. All in all, Kiss and Tell is a very enjoyable read and I look forward to hearing more about Jill Shadow.

This was the first book that I have ever read by TJ Cooke. I think that is well written with interesting characters. Surely a great thriller, the only thing that I didn't like much was the going back and forth in the story. Anyway, I am now looking forward to read other books by this author in the future...

"Kiss and Tell" is very good on background. It's clear that the author knows his way both around the criminal justice system and has knowledge of the policy and official attitudes to drugs. I found this fascinating, and it added depth to the story. The plotline is different but I found it quite complex and difficult to follow in places. The main character breaks the mould in lawyers turned detective, which is refreshing. A good debut novel."Kiss and Tell
