Summary

From USA Today bestselling author Debra Webb comes the thrilling first installment in the Finley O’Sullivan series, featuring a legal investigator haunted by her past and obsessed with the truth.

Legal investigator Finley O’Sullivan searches for evidence the police overlooked, wading through secrets, lies, and betrayal to find answers. With the unsolved murder of her husband still very much on her mind, Finley must confront her own personal trauma on a daily basis. Lies are part of her livelihood, but they’re also the reason she can’t get justice for the man she loved.

When a man imprisoned for murder recants his confession, claiming he cleaned up the mess for his girlfriend—the victim’s own daughter—Finley takes on the case. She discovers the victim had identical twin daughters...and the sisters have very different accounts of the crime.

As she dives headlong into the twins’ traumatic past, Finley will have to contend with her own demons to get to the truth—before it’s too late.

Critic reviews

“Deftly narrated by the vocal storytelling talents of Megan Tusing, this…offers a true theater of the mind experience and is highly recommended.” (Midwest Book Review)

“A complex case fraught with angst and danger ends with surprising revelations.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Debra Webb writes the kind of thrillers I love to read. Sure, there is a murder or more. Yes, a twisted mystery to be solved. Once again, in The Last Lie Told, her characters are fully rendered and reveal themselves authentically as her novel unfolds and careens to its stunning conclusion. The Last Lie Told is her best yet. Webb is the queen of smart suspense.” (Gregg Olsen, number one New York Times best-selling author)

Not her best

I love Debra Webb and will continue to read her books, no doubt! This was just not my favorite. So many scattered beginnings and very predictable issues and outcome with the twins. Not to mention unanswered questions. Like the knife???

Good Story Nice Twists

A little slow to get going and in a few places repetitive, otherwise, the plot was interesting and character development was good. It could have been a bit deeper but the storyline is complex as it is. Finley is definitely a heroine who struggles with demons from her trauma shows a fierce inner strength to fight back for what she believes in and most of all justice.

Narration was excellent!!

It’s agoraphobia…

The story was good but I kept getting so distracted by them calling in “agrophobia.” That’s… not a thing.

Okay but...

The narrator mispronouncing agoraphobia kills me every time. Other than that, Tusing did a great job even if the story was a bit boring.

I like Finley.

I liked this book. This is the first book I’ve read by this author but I like her style. There were a lot of unanswered questions in this book I’m assuming they will be answered in the next one as it looks like this will become a series. I will definitely continue on with series because I really enjoyed the characters. The narrator was pretty good and overall I would give this 4.5/5 stars!

Uniquely Qualified

This is a really interesting story with a uniquely qualified heroine who is determined to get to the bottom of her current case. While she’s quite the risk taker, she doesn’t carry a gun and has to rely on her wits.

Solid Book - Leaves Lingering Question

The book was enjoyable. A major plot twist is not reconciled in this book. I suspect that the twist may run through all of the books in the series. The twist is compelling enough to read the next book. I am not positive after that.

A great challenge to try to figure out!

I enjoyed this book. It never got boring. The main characters were well developed. I thought the twists and turns were well done.
