Synopsis

In TRUTH KILLS, librarian-turned-private-investigator Angelina Bonaparte is a woman on a mission––to ferret out cheaters and lowlifes and bring them to justice. Angie has plenty of experience with such men––and not just because her former husband was the king of the lot. As a P.I. in Milwaukee, most of Angie’s work is tracking down deadbeats and exposing unfaithful spouses. But, now she’s been asked by a betrayed pregnant wife to prove her cheating husband, Anthony Belloni––aka Tony Baloney––innocent of the murder of his kept mistress. Angie’s heart tells her to let the skunk rot in prison, but her head convinces her that adultery is not grounds for incarceration. During the investigation, Angie encounters so many people who wished the victim dead that she has to develop a chart to keep track of them all. She also encounters hunky police detective Ted Wukowski, who is still reeling from the death of his former female MPD partner at the hands of a narcotics gang, and thinks women don’t belong in the path of danger. As they work toward the same goal––discovering the dead woman’s killer––Angie and Detective Wukowski realize their attraction for each other and must decide whether they are strong enough as individuals to work through her lack of trust and his fear of loss.

Reviews

“First off I’m not much of a mystery reader, but I’m starting to come around with help from novels like this. It’s fast-paced, had me hooked from the beginning and I could hardly put it down. I barely took a breath between finishing the sample and clicking “buy now” on my kindle. The characters, locations, and atmosphere (the subtle building of the attraction and romance along with the scattering of clues for the case) are well written; I could picture everything very clearly. Nanci Rathbun has definitely made it onto my “Watch” list, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.”
“The story piqued my interest. The plot line was well written. The description of Milwaukee landmarks were spot on. I enjoy reading mysteries with local or state ties. The story line had me guessing until the very end. Looking forward to reading the next one.”
“Truth Kills is the first book in a series for new cozy author Nanci Rathbun and what a debut! Rathbun manages to make murder and mayhem into a rich and rowdy trip into the life of Angie Bonaparte. Told in a strong and compelling first person voice, the story masterfully merges Angie’s private life with her career as a private detective.

Through Rathbun’s delicious dialects and crafty character quirks deliver a one two punch that will leave the reader interested and intrigued.

This is a must read for all cozy fans

I am biting my nails waiting for the next installment in this series!”
