The New Version of The Truth Will Out is available now!

I’m delighted to be able to share with you today that the new version of The Truth Will Out, the second in the DCI Helen Lavery series, is available now. Isn’t it gorgeous?


Eva is horrified when she witnesses an attack on her best friend. She calls an ambulance and forces herself to flee Hampton, fearing for her own safety.

DCI Helen Lavery leads the investigation into the murder. With no leads, no further witnesses and no sign of forced entry, the murder enquiry begins. Slowly, the pieces of the puzzle start to come together. But as Helen inches towards solving the case, her past becomes caught up in her present.

Someone is after them both. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what they want. And as the net starts to close around them, can Helen escape her own demons as well as helping Eva to escape hers?



It’s almost five years since this book was originally released and so lovely to see it have a makeover. This follows the release of the new version of the first in the series, An Unfamiliar Murder earlier this year:


Arriving home from a routine day at work, Anna Cottrell has no idea that her life is about to change forever. But discovering the stabbed body of a stranger in her flat, then becoming prime suspect in a murder inquiry is only the beginning. Her persistent claims of innocence start to crumble when new evidence links her irrevocably with the victim…

Leading her first murder investigation, DCI Helen Lavery unravels a trail of deception, family secrets and betrayal. When people close to the Cottrell family start to disappear, Lavery is forced into a race against time. Can she catch the killer before he executes his ultimate victim?



The series has seen a revamp in preparation for the brand spanking new DCI Helen Lavery novel, A Deathly Silence, which will be published by the team at Legend Press on 15th October. I’m so looking forward to sharing Helen’s latest story with you as she faces her most challenging case yet!

When the mutilated body of a police officer is found in a derelict factory, Hamptonshire force are shocked to the core.

DCI Helen Lavery returns from injury leave and is immediately plunged into an investigation like no other. Is this a random attack or is someone targeting the force? Organised crime groups or a lone killer?

As the net draws in, Helen finds the truth lies closer than she could have imagined, and trusts no one.
But Helen is facing a twisted killer who will stop at nothing to ensure their secrets remain hidden. And time is running out…

A Deathly Silence is available to pre-order in e-book and paperback here.
