Book Details

Title: Darkest Truth

Author: Catherine Kirwan

Pages: 407

Genre: Thriller, Mystery, Suspense, Crime Fiction, Psychological Fiction

Published: March 2019

Publicist: Lauren Mc Diarmid


When solicitor Finn Fitzpatrick is approached by a man to investigate the death of his daughter, her first instinct is to refuse. The father is grieving, and unable to accept that his daughter committed suicide. And yet something about the man’s story chimes with Finn. Why did a bright, confident, beautiful young girl suddenly drop out of school? Could the answer lie in her relationship with Ireland’s most famous film director? The deeper Finn goes into the case, the more dark, twisted and dangerous the picture becomes.

Because these are powerful people she is trying to expose. And they’re willing to do anything to keep the truth hidden.

My Thoughts

When I started reading this book, I was so excited for it just from the Title and cover and I expected so much from it and let just say that I was a bit disappointed. Without me spoiling the book for you, let’s start with the review.

The writing is perfect and the flow of the events was carefully constructed and I really enjoyed that.

The characters are different and relatable at the same time. Catherine did an amazing job bringing them to life which I loved.

The plot was amazing, I was engaged form the beginning to until the end of the book. With that said, I felt like the plot could have gone to another direction at the end of the book but we did not have that. From the Title I expected a major turn to the plot twist at the end, which the book failed to deliver for me.

Apart from that, I enjoyed the book and I’d recommend it.


Those were my thoughts. Thank you Penguin Random House SA for the sample copy.
