I can’t tell you the truth, but I can tell you a story …

With that one sentence, David Videcette had me hook, line and sinker! The author is a former Scotland Yard investigator and boy, does that show! Inspired by true events, this series just blows my mind to smithereens.

Yet again, Mr Videcette puts his own spin on real life investigations... Yet again my perception of events is questioned! How much of this is truth and how much is just a story?

David Videcette blends fact and fiction in such a way that you would be hard pressed to know where one ends and the other begins, it is totally seamless... I guiltily look forward to a third book.

REVIEW

 
I was totally hooked... It’s explosive, unique and totally mind-blowing. The fact that Videcette bases his stories around real events, you sit and wonder what truly is fact and what is fiction?
