“Women are turning up dead, and Lisa O’Malley has a habit of walking into crime scenes, curious. She’s a forensic pathologist, and mysteries are her domain. U.S. Marshal Quinn Diamond has found loving her is easier than keeping her safe. Lisa’s found the killer, and now she’s missing too.”
The Truth Seeker, by Dee Henderson is the third book in the O’Malley series. I know I am changing things up by doing a review of the third book first, but this one is my favorite in the series and I wanted to start with it. Henderson’s series are inspirational religious books. She is very good at writing fiction that makes one think about things in a unique way. They way she tells each of the stories in this series is different from the other yet the same.
Lisa O’Malley struggles with the resurrection of Christ, and Quinn Diamond is falling in love with Lisa, while investigating the murder of his father that happened over twenty years ago. Together they put pieces together, of the murders in Chicago. The way Henderson writes this story is not sappy and unrealistic, it is realistic, and at the same time still not boring. She brings across the point of the investigations, and the terms that go along with that. She uses detail to such a point that the reader can clearly see the picture of what is happing in ones mind eye.
The reason this book is one of my favorites is that reason, the vividness of the descriptions and feelings of the characters. It feels as though the reader is experiencing everything with the O’Malley’s. I recommend this book and the rest in its series to anyone who is looking for a mystery and a romance as well as a laugh. Dee Henderson knows how to write mysteries and romance while still throwing in a laugh.
