Boston Detective D.D. Warren faces her most brutal adversaries yet—a class of jaded thriller writers—in New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Gardner's exclusive e-Book short story
In Lisa Gardner's second short story, after the New York Times bestseller The 7th Month, Detective D.D. Warren takes on her most intimidating assignment yet: a fifty-minute class meant to educate a horde of bloodthirsty thriller writers on the ways of actual police work. Yet sometimes life really does imitate fiction, as D.D. takes the writers through the reality of one of her most twisted cases—a case that involves a seedy motel room, drugs, prostitution . . . and a severed leg. With Gardner's trademark suspense, sharp observations, and thrilling storytelling, Three Truths and a Lie is a fascinating chapter in D.D.'s storied career. Includes an early look at Lisa Gardner's next novel of suspense, Find Her, coming February 9, 2016.
Fictional detective meets real fiction authors and more in the latest addition to the D.D. Warren series by author Lisa Gardner, Three Truths And A Lie. The story starts off with D.D. stressing about meeting a group of fiction writers to discuss the daily routine of a homicide detective at a Writers' Police Academy in Wisconsin. Rather than delivering her original speech, D.D. opts to use the "three truths and a lie" game by telling the writers about a gory murder at a no-star hotel. The audience, filled with mystery, suspense, and thriller writers, must determine what the lie is in order to win. Will they guess correctly? Will you? Of course, you'll need to read Three  Truths And A Lie for yourself to see if you can outwit this fictional detective. If you don't want to guess the lie, simply grab a copy of Three Truths And A Lie to read because it is a fast, often humorous, and engaging read. I'm looking forward to Ms. Gardner's next D.D. Warren installment, Find Her, coming soon.
