Three sisters--a blogger, a cab driver, and a stay-at home mom--investigate to try and clear their brother's name after he is accused of murder.

Zondervan House

The first book in the riveting Moonlighters Series from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Terri Blackstock.

“Crisp prose, an engaging story, and brisk pacing make this thriller another home run for Blackstock.” —Library Journal, starred review

When truth doesn’t make sense, will lies prevail?

Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on high-profile homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she’s about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief . . . until her brother’s wife is murdered and all the “facts” point to him. The killer has staged the crime to make the truth too far-fetched to believe. Working to solve the murder and clear her brother’s name, Cathy and her two sisters, Holly and Juliet, moonlight as part-time private investigators. Juliet, a stay-at-home mom of two boys, and Holly, a scattered ne’er-do-well who drives a taxi, put aside their fear to hunt down the real killer.

Stakes rise when their brother’s grieving five-year-old son is kidnapped. As police focus on the wrong set of clues, the three sisters and their battered detective friend are the only hope for solving this bizarre crime, saving the child, and freeing their brother.

“A story rich with texture and suspense, this family murder mystery unfolds with fast pacing, a creepy clown murder suspect, and threatening blog visitor to boot.” —Publishers Weekly

Truth Stained Lies is the first in what’s likely to be a very popular new series for Blackstock. Her characters are flawed, faltering in their faith, and ultimately human. They’re the kind of people you wish you had as friends. This latest novel should appeal to millions of existing fans and millions of new fans who just don’t know it yet.” —CBA Retailers + Resources


Can three sisters---a blogger, a cab driver, and a stay-at-home mom---with only a little courage and no experience, moonlight as private investigators to save their brother from a murder rap? Find out in Truth-Stained Lies---the first book in New York Times bestselling author Terri Blackstock’s new Moonlighter Series.
