Where the Truth Lies is a clever, gripping thriller with complex characters and chilling secrets at its core. Karina Kilmore’s flawed heroine takes us through Melbourne’s gritty underside in a desperate quest to uncover the truth. The investigative journalist battles to piece together a dark puzzle of unexplained deaths, big business, trade unions and media manipulation. I love her feistiness and determination to take on the old boys’ network. This compelling story touches on so many hot-button topics that you’ll keep thinking about it long after you’ve finished the last page. A truly impressive debut.

‘Reading Karina Kilmore’s Where the Truth Lies, I was reminded of American author Sara Peretsky’s first books. And she writes fluently, her descriptions often lyrical.
