Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Truth That Lies Between is a work of murder mystery and small-town crime fiction and was penned by author W. D. McComb. The action starts with a group of best friends, a trio of carefree young lads who have little to do with their time but race around farms on three-wheelers and generally have fun. But Case, Jack, and Jet are about to become prime suspects when they discover the remains of a murdered drifter. As their lives are all turned upside down by the effects of this killing, the boys realize that they must solve the case and clear their names before they lose everything that they hold dear.

Author W. D. McComb writes with beautiful imagery, and it makes this compelling murder mystery feel like a modern-day Steinbeck novel. The farmlands and the big skies come to life with compelling scene setting, and this is bolstered by authentic dialogue which characterizes Case and his friends well. Once the audience is hooked in and ready to relate to and fall in love with this idyllic premise, the shock of the murder and its domino effect on events is all the more visceral and exciting for the plot. The events are well planned out and well revealed to give us plenty of time to think and predict alongside our would-be investigators, and when the conclusion does come, it will never be what you expected, but it’s satisfying nonetheless. Overall, The Truth That Lies Between is an excellent work of fiction that comes highly recommended.
