All the Deadly Lies

All the Deadly Lies by Marian Lanouette

4 favorable stars🌟🌟🌟🌟


Homicide detective Jake Carrington takes murder personally…

The victim was bludgeoned, stripped, and left for dead. Shanna Wagner deserves justice—and there’s no better cop than Lieutenant Jake Carrington to find her killer. The brutality of the crime reminds Jake of his sister’s murder seventeen years ago, and the remorseless man responsible, now up for parole.

Then another woman is killed—and Jake goes dangerously close to the edge. He’ll have to face his personal demons and focus his formidable skills if he hopes to stop a vicious murderer from striking again—and hold on to his career, and his life . . .

A Jake Carrington Thriller

Previously published as If I Fail


This was a police procedural, and admittedly this is not my favorite type of mystery/thriller…. however, I did find this book interesting and the characters quite engaging….

Jake and his partner Louie’s relationship and banter was really the best part of this book for me…. I thought these men both as partners at work and as characters in this book balanced each other out really well…. and bonus they were both very manly without being complete jerks…..

In the first half of this book there was a lot going on, really a little too much…. the second half of the book really focused on the two main cases in this book, and I found that part of the book very well done…. I was solving the crime right along with Jake and Louie….

There is some romance in this book between Jake and Mia… really liked her character, and I think she struggled with something a lot of Women do, including myself…. wanting to be that strong independent woman, and yet wanting someone to be there for you when you want them to be….. of course this confuses Jake, because really it is quite confusing…. warning to my Friends with an aversion to romance your eyes will be rolling….
Steam rating from 1-10 is a 4🔥🔥🔥🔥
Movie rating if this were a movie for sex, violence, and language probably R

Absolutely recommend this book to fans of police procedurals with a pretty fabulous partnership…. you could always skim the romance if that’s not your thing😉

*** i’d like to thank Net Galley and the publisher for a copy of this book, in exchange for my honest review ***

  1. Great review! I’m always a bit on the iffy side with police procedurals too but still find myself grabbing them because occasionally I find that awesome one that just clicks.
