"A page turner I couldn't put down" - Trish
"This story was fantastic" - Bev
After a recent mistake, FBI special agent Frankie Johnson is desperate to prove she has what it takes to become a lead profiler with the Bureau’s Charlotte, NC field office. So when the district attorney’s daughter is discovered bound, raped, and murdered, she volunteers to assist the local detective on the case to help find her killer. The evidence leads to two suspects—the victim’s husband and her lover—but after a series of intense interrogations, the detective finds himself no closer to uncovering the truth. It’s clear both suspects are lying, but about who, what, and when?
Frankie develops four possible profiles based upon the murderer’s motive and intent, but with the facts shifting daily, any one of them could prove correct. She battles the headstrong detective to convince him of her findings, yet senses their only real hope in finding the true killer is to unwrap the lies layer by layer.
Now, it’s a race to expose someone who knows the deception game as well as she does. Can she see through the misleading words and actions of a killer to uncover the one lie that will expose the truth before a killer walks free?
99 Truths is the electrifying first book in the Frankie Johnson FBI Profiler thriller series. If you like cop dramas, heroines with heart, and surprising twists, then you’ll love Lori Lacefield’s chilling mystery.

Frankie Johnson is a profiler, and she is determined to re-establish herself as someone capable of profiling a suspect and getting justice for the victim. When the DA's daughter is the victim of a violent crime, Frankie and her partner, Ben, are called in to assist the Charlotte PD. Enter Deke, the lead cop on the case and friend of the DA and his family, who resents their participation in his case. Deke has his sights on Lianna's husband, Stewart, as well as Joe, the man with whom she was having an affair.
But Frankie isn't convinced.
Meanwhile, Ben, is trying to nail "The Impostor" who is running a Ponzi scheme and targeting the wealthy.
As they work their cases, Ben and Frankie continue to work in partnership.
I did suspect the killer early on, but was puzzled by a few things. I liked how Frankie caught the one lie among the 99 truths. I am excited to read more of this series.
Thanks to Lori Lacefield for the ARC. All opinions are my own.
She is also up against a very well-liked detective with an impressive record. Still, there is something that seems 'off' to her. Can she find out what it is and prove she knows what she is doing? She is fighting an uphill battle in more ways than one in this story. Great characters! The story was fantastic, a lot of emotions and mystery. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. Looking forward to more from this author.
