Review: All the Little Truths (Finley O’Sullivan #3) by Debra Webb


Print Length: 344 pages
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer (November 7, 2023)

From Legal investigator Finley O’Sullivan has dealt with her share of shady characters, but the firm’s latest client has an even darker past than most. In fact, Nashville Metro Police seems to think he’s a murderer.

Finley isn’t so sure. Her investigation into Ray Johnson’s history focuses on the unsolved murder of a teenager who died seventeen years earlier. The case went cold, but questions remain. Months after the girl’s death, people close to her started disappearing—her mother first, then Ray’s brother. But why?

As Finley races to solve a decades-old murder, she uncovers new clues and long-buried secrets that could blow the case wide open. But whoever killed the girl all those years ago may still be a threat—and now the chase is on.


My Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5

This book was ..... interesting. 

And by interesting I means that there was enough detail to keep me engaged in what was going on, but those same details served to reaffirm a pattern I had seen in prior novels. And that is, in these novels; everyone lies and only Finley notices it. So she works with what she has, then she uncovers more lies, and round and round the story goes, until she solves it.  And while sure, that is probably pretty accurate when it comes to solving crimes, just once I would like there to be one character who may seem shady, but who is actually telling the truth. 

When it comes to this one in particular, it was good until it ..... well went completely off the rails. 

You know,  as ridiculous as that was, I might have been able to overlook the whole Louise/Ian storyline. But the criminal mastermind showing up "to take care of business himself" only to be taken out by a pair of "cheap chopsticks?" Either this author just wanted to try and shock the reader or I'm getting Chinese from the wrong place as mine would never be that sharp.

And then we had the almost too perfect ending in which everything is wrapped up in a nice bow with their own happily-ever-after. I mean don't get me wrong after everything Finley has been through, she deserved a happy ending, but this just didn't seem to fit. In fact, it went against everything we know of her character up until this point, but DOES I will begrudgingly admit, set things up for the author to continue this series with Finley in a new role.
