Length: 1 hr and 40 mins

Date Read: January 2016


Boston Detective D.D. Warren faces her most brutal adversaries yet—a class of jaded thriller writers—in New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Gardner’s exclusive e-Book short story

In Lisa Gardner's second short story, after the New York Times bestseller The 7th Month, Detective D.D. Warren takes on her most intimidating assignment yet: a fifty-minute class meant to educate a horde of bloodthirsty thriller writers on the ways of actual police work. Yet sometimes life really does imitate fiction, as D.D. takes the writers through the reality of one of her most twisted cases—a case that involves a seedy motel room, drugs, prostitution . . . and a severed leg.  

With Gardner’s trademark suspense, sharp observations, and thrilling storytelling, Three Truths and a Lie is a fascinating chapter in D.D.’s storied career. Includes an early look at Lisa Gardner’s next novel of suspense, Find Her, coming February 9, 2016.

Novella Tweet-Length Thoughts: Three Truths and a Lie was a fun, quick listen that made me want to go to Writer’s Police Academy. Great way to get to know DD Warren!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Kirsten Potter / Length: 1 hr and 40 mins

Kirsten did a great job with the narration. This was basically all DD and she nailed what I thought she would sound like. I am going to have to get the ones that I am missing on audiobook (this is a series that I have skipped around on).

    • They have them for mystery/thriller/romantic suspense writers. They are often put on my cops, detectives, forensic scientist. I have heard they are brilliantly fun.

      • That is so cool! I thought these writers just do private consults with investigators. I didn’t know there’s an actual workshop for that. Thanks for this trivia!

    • I picked it up after you pointed it out. I was originally going to skip it cause I generally do with novellas. This was unique but it gives you a good idea of how Lisa tells a story.
