Truth Lies Waiting

(The first book in the Davy Johnson series)
A novel by


A gritty psychological thriller perfect for fans of Ian Rankin, Stuart MacBride and Denise Mina.

Imagine you've just witnessed a murder.
And you're now being framed for it.
Only the person framing you is a cop...

Davy Johnson is a young man from the wrong side of the tracks with a target on his back. After a spell in prison he is trying to make a life for himself but one cop won’t leave him alone, following him around and carting him off to the station just for the fun of it. The harassment turns sinister when Davy witnesses his nemesis overstep the mark with a local junkie – and makes the mistake of telling him he’s been seen. What happens next sees Davy framed for a string of murders with no one to help him but the gang leader he turned his back on when he got out of jail – but what will he want in return?

With the help of an ex con and a local cabbie Davy goes on the run to prove his innocence but as the body count rises he discovers a connection between what’s happening now and a tragedy involving his father many years before.

Will he be able to work out the truth from the lie in time to save the killer’s next victim?
