About Lies to Die for by Todd Thiede
Detectives Larkin and Fairlane grapple with a killer who is branding his victims. Lies To Die For is the second volume in the Max Larkin Detective series, another thrilling read.
Max Larkin and Jesse Fairlane are the top two detectives in Rockton, Illinois. In Lies to Die For, the second book in the Max Larkin Detective series, they are in pursuit of a killer that is branding letters on the victim’s bodies. Is it someone the victims know, or is it just a random person taking out frustrations on the small community of Rockton?
Max is just finishing a one-month suspension for hiding things from his captain while Jesse has been holding down the fort during his absence. There hasn’t been much crime in Rockton since the Time Killer killings, but Captain Perry knows he’s going to need his whole team working together to catch the person that killed a local college professor and his girlfriend.
Just as the clues start to come together, there’s another murder. Max and Jesse find themselves disagreeing a lot as to who to suspect and why. This partnership is on the rocks and the town needs them now more than ever.
