Publisher's Summary

In a remote town on the Suffolk coast, the local residents are stalked by a brutal killer.

After the sighting of strange lights in the sky, the dismembered, burnt remains of the local RAF base commander are discovered in his car. An autopsy reveals that the victim showed signs of exposure to high radiation levels.

Assistant Chief Constable Angela White enlists the aid of both John Handful and local reporter Yazmin Nash. The level of radiation the killer leaves in its wake should have killed any normal man by now, but the murders continue: the killer appears to be both more and less than human. And then when a leading government minister arrives the pressure is on for Handful to solve the case not only quickly but also quietly, by any means possible.

Until a strange craft is discovered...

Handful then turns from hunter to hunted, where everyone is playing for the highest stakes, and where violence becomes the only solution....

I found the mystery quite engaging...

Andrew Hixson keeps improving! This time I actually felt connected to the story... and it was really guite engaging. The mystery, around which the story revolves,  really worked, but alas, our hero (John Handful) is just hopeless at times! He has a propensity to trust his eyes and not his gut instincts, he over analyzes about whether or not to jump, when he should be Freaking Jumping, and this always gets him into trouble! As in previous books in this series, characters often make the most nonsensical, almost laughable decisions, so yeah, that needs to be addressed, but otherwise I think that this the best one yet! Also there still seems to be a few loose ends like for instance who's driving the dark Audi? Why are they surveilling him?
I'm not sure why we have a new narrator as Michael Sharp's narration was perfectly acceptable in bk 4, but I have to admit Gerard Marquez gave a great performance!
The major problem I had with this audiobook, was with the production itself! The audio version of the book had so many mistakes... just within the first 3 or 4 chapters, there was a handful of repeated words and/or phrases, and those goofy mistakes were shotgunned throughout the entire book! So, Grrrrrr on the audio editor who allowed those mistakes to slip by! The overall rating slipped down a 🌟 because of the editor, and hopefully that will be fixed soon...

Something is on a killing spree...is it human?

Good story. We follow PI John Handful as he investigates a murder. When the grossly mutilated bodies begin to pile up, and the government takes over the investigation, John begins to wonder...is there any correlation between the murders and sightings of a UFO? This is a gripping tale of murder and something sinister. Will Handful survive this case?
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Read between the lies

This was a very good story,that I nearly gave up on.Narration by Gerard Marquez was fair to good at times.There were many repeated lines,especially at the beginning of sentences.There were long gaps between words in some sentences.He has a nice voice though. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Kept Me Guessing!

Read Between the Lies by Andrew Hixson is so well done! I love it when I do not have it figured out and have to keep guessing. The author is greatly talented and writing suspense and mystery. I liked the character of John Handful. I thought the narrator, Gerard Marquez was great bringing the characters to life. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
