Beyond the Truth
by Bruce Robert Coffin
on Tour November 1-30, 2018
In this latest enthralling mystery from #1 bestselling author Bruce Robert Coffin, Detective Sergeant John Byron faces the greatest challenge of his career.
When a popular high school senior is shot by police following a late night robbery, chaos ensues. The actions of the officer are immediately called into question. Amid community protests, political grandstanding, department leaks, and reluctant witnesses, Byron and his team must work quickly to find the missing pieces.
And when an attempt is made on the officer’s life, Byron shifts into overdrive, putting everything on the line. Was the attack merely retribution or something more sinister? The search for the truth may come at a price not even Byron can afford.
I liked this novel of precise police procedure. I can tell Coffin was on the force for decades. His attention to detail is very evident. It added a sense of reality to the action. And I liked the personal aspect, following the life of Detective Sergeant Byron. He is fighting his own battles as well as trying to find the truth behind a difficult killing. Coffin's experience also shows as we read about interference from a persistent reporter and from a superior whose aspirations for advancement hinder Bryon's investigative work. And then there are the suspects and their loved ones who lie.
I recommend this novel to readers who enjoy getting caught up in a captivating plot with characters you'll care about. This is a good police procedure novel from a talented writer.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
