Steven Suttie - 2020
A major Manchester gangster called Tommy McKinlay is on remand and it looks as though he will be going away for a long stretch. But he knows something that DCI Miller can't possibly afford to be made public. Something about the infamous "Pop" case from three years earlier. Something that could see Miller behind bars, for a very long time. It was supposed to be a very closely guarded secret. As far as Miller was aware, only a handful of people knew the details which are now threatening to destroy his career, and his life. What does McKinlay want in return for his silence? More importantly, can McKinlay be trusted to keep this explosive information silent if Miller agrees to his demands? Twisting the Truth is a heart-stopping DCI Miller page-turner which promises to keep readers guessing until the very last page. Can Miller get out of this? Or is Tommy McKinlay going to be Miller's puppet-master for the rest of time? Will Miller manage to keep his team together as the gravity of the situation rocks his officers who also face disgrace and prison time if McKinlay's information ever became public? This is a very deep hole that Manchester's best known detective has found himself in, one which threatens everything. Twisting the Truth will be released on May 18th.
