“A pulse pounding thriller, which weaves expertly between evil on the streets and the dark side of police department politics. . . . Simms and Fennimore are complex, compelling, and just plain marvelous.” —Jeffery Deaver
“This is thriller writing at its best: prose that's startling in its pace and clarity, characters who come to life immediately and the bonus of knowing that all the forensic details are entirely accurate.” —Ann Cleeves
“Awesome...What A. D. Garrett doesn't understand about forensic science and its applications isn't worth knowing. Ditto characterisation, plot and pace. A sterling debut.” —Mo Hayder
"Brilliantly melds a deep knowledge of forensic procedures with a riveting story. The subtle twists in Everyone Lies
kept me guessing until the end. Fans of Kathy Reichs and Patricia Cornwell are going to love this book!" —
D.J. McIntosh, Bestselling author of The Witch of Babylon.
"Outstanding . . . Garrett balances the intricacies of forensics with the cerebral instincts of crime investigation." —Publishers Weekly
, starred review
"The backstory between Fennimore and Simms is tantalizingly glossed over, adding tension to the story, as readers attempt to work out the tension between the characters. This gritty British thriller will appeal to fans of Ken Bruen and Val McDermid." —Booklist
