Publisher's Summary

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, 3 Truths and a Lie is a fascinating chapter in D.D.'s storied career.

    "Great story. Best to avoid sample chapter at end"

    The short story was very enjoyable... it only I'd stopped there. The story is followed by a couple of sample chapters from Gardner's next release. The first chapter is something I wish I could un-hear. The description of the experience was way too graphic for me.

    "Unbearable narrator"

    Enjoy Gardner and this series. The narrator was dreadful had to abandon after 10 mins. Shrill. Awful.

    Story
    "Ugh!!!!! Change the narrator... PLEASE!!!!"

    I listened to approximately 30 minutes of this and was so annoyed with the narrator's interpretation that I had to quit. It was awful. I think I might try actually reading this one. I feel like the content is there, but Ms. Kirsten's portrayal is grossly off and does it no justice. My apology to the author.

    Story
    "Flawless"
    If you could sum up 3 Truths and a Lie in three words, what would they be?

    What a fun romp, if you can call a gruesome little detective story a romp. It's the perfect blend of narrator with the story to create a truly fun listen. Plus, it's super short, so it's good to listen in between longer books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 3 Truths and a Lie?

    I love the set up of the detective presenting her most memorable case to a group of writers. It made the listener feel like they were in the room. So much fun.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It's a story.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Boston Detective D. D. Warren lectures..."

    ...crime novel authors at a conference. This one hour short story is about one of Warren's cases. She engages her audience to get their input on what she should have done next at each point in the case. Kirsten Potter does her normal great job of narration. The short story is free at Audible. The short story is followed by the first two chapters of Find Her, the D. D. Warren thriller to be released on Feb. 9, 2016.

    Story
    "Good voice for the material. Too graphic for me."

    I appreciate the story and the mystery it revealed. But the writing was more graphic than it needed to be, which really just disturbed me instead adding to the story.
