Review : Tell the truth, Shame the devil by Melina Marchetta


Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil by Melina Marchetta is a psychological thriller that will draw you in from the start. Melina Marchetta is a brilliant story teller. 

This is the story of Bish, whose life has been tragic. His son's death has torn apart his marriage and made it rough in his relationship with his daughter, who is also grieving. His daughter's tour bus is then bombed while on holiday. Bish is assigned to work the investigation. 

This is a story of how quickly things can change and how perception may not always be what it seems. The character development is so detailed and rich, you  can't help but lose yourself in them. This was a book I couldn't put down. This was my first book from this author and I will definitely be checking out her other books. If you are new to this author, I would recommend diving into this gem!  You won't be sorry.
