Review: The Truth of All Things By: Kieran Shields

The Truth of All ThingsThe Truth of All Things by Kieran Shields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beware of those offering to show you "The Truth of All Things". A great mystery, thriller, with a throw in of occult - you can't miss.

Summer of 1892 proves to be the beginning of a serial murderer choosing his victims very carefully in Portalnd, Maine. Deputy Marshall Kean is hot on the trail noting oddities and calls in the pinkerton Indian half breed Grey to lend a hand. With the help of Dr. Steig and his niece Helen, they uncover the symbols of the killings and just where he might be found.

The killings follow two parts: The Salem Witch trials and The Black Book (a book of dark evil). With the leads taking them two steps forward and one step back, a game of cat and mouse begins only to have a dramatic climax.

Great written characters, main and secondary are very dimensional. A wonderful storyline that captures the reader (I stayed up all night to finish on the edge of my seat).

I can't wait to see more from this author, finding that as this is his first, I greatly enjoyed.
