One Dark Lie

Book 3, London & Cambridge Mysteries

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The truth can hurt, and sometimes it leads to murder …
After becoming embroiled in a murder investigation, Nate Bastable and Ruby Fawcett have decided to opt for the quiet life. But crime has a habit of following them around. 
When her work dries up, Ruby finds herself accepting a job researching and writing about Diana Patrick-John, a colourful and enigmatic Cambridge academic. Simple enough. But then there’s the small fact that Diana was found dead in suspicious circumstances in her home – the very place where Ruby has now been invited to stay. 
As she begins to uncover Diana’s secret life, Ruby’s sleuthing instinct kicks in, leaving her open to danger and retribution. But can she rely on Nate to support her? Especially when his behaviour has become increasingly distant and strange, almost as though he had something to hide 

Customer Reviews

A mystery until the very end

The two main characters, Ruby and her policeman boyfriend Nate, have their own mystery plots that run parallel throughout the book.

Ruby is employed by the brother of a murdered Cambridge academic to write his dead sister's biography. The brother now lives in his sister's house that he inherited and where the murder took place. A condition of accepting the job to write the biography, is for Ruby to stay in this house, allegedly to get the atmosphere of the sister. Considering the murder occurred here, and the murderer is still at large, this sounds risky. Whilst gathering information about the dead woman for the biography, Ruby is also hunting for reasons why she was murdered, putting her own life in danger.

Meanwhile, Nate is busy trying to gather proof that his sister's death was the responsibility of a vicious gangster. His sister was staying with Nate and died in a house fire, but Nate doesn't know if he or his sister was the intended victim.

The chapters alternate between Ruby and Nate, with the plot getting more and more complex and plenty of diversions to mislead the reader along the way. A good thriller that only gives up it's secret at the very end.

I received an ARC copy for an honest review.
