- Not available
When truth doesn't make sense, will lies prevail?
Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on high-profile homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she's about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief . . . until her brother's wife is murdered and all the "facts" point to him. The killer has staged the crime to make the truth too far-fetched to believe. Working to solve the murder and clear her brother's name, Cathy and her two sisters, Holly and Juliet, moonlight as part-time private investigators. Juliet, a stay-at-home mom of two boys, and Holly, a scattered ne'er-do-well who drives a taxi, put aside their fear to hunt down the real killer.
Stakes rise when their brother's grieving five-year-old son is kidnapped. As police focus on the wrong set of clues, the three sisters and their battered detective friend are the only hope for solving this bizarre crime, saving the child, and freeing their brother.

"Crisp prose, an engaging story, and brisk pacing make this thriller another home run for Blackstock (Downfall). Recommend it to readers who enjoy material by Lynette Eason and Erin Healy." * Library Journal, starred review *
"Truth Stained Lies is the first in what's likely to be a very popular new series for Blackstock. Her characters are flawed, faltering in their faith, and ultimately human. They're the kind of people you wish you had as friends. This latest novel should appeal to millions of existing fans and millions of new fans who just don't know it yet." * CBA Retailers + Resources *
"The first book in Blackstock's new Moonlighter series is intriguing, with a fast-moving plot. There are a large number of connected characters, and it is quite difficult to keep everyone straight, along with their relationships and complicated backstories. Here's hoping that as the series progresses and more details are revealed, this will improve." * RT Book Reviews, 3-star review *
