‘All the Hidden Truths’ by Claire Askew is a novel which I recently won in a competition and I am really excited to read. It is a psychological and suspense thriller novel which was released in August 2018. A man named Ryan Summers walked into Three Rivers College and killed thirteen women and then himself. It follows his mother, the first victim and DI Helen Birch as they all ask the same question. As they try to find out what happens and the media are looking for the truth, the truth seems to be further and further away.
I am excited to read this as it seems like something I would typically enjoy reading. It is a crime novel that also features some police procedural and investigations. From the reviews I have read it is a really intense and shocking book however realistic as it a situation which is something that seems to be happening more and more. It also shows how this impacts people from three different perspectives; the mother of the criminal, a victim and a Detective. It is a very emotional and shocking subject which makes the book gripping from page one.
I am very excited to start reading this book and seeing how this author writes!
