About the Book

She was slipping away. The further she fell, the closer the clouds seemed to come. Wispy transparent slipstreams of white. Cirrus. Pain smashed her head. Floating...


When investigative journalist Chrissie O’Brian lands a senior job at The Argus, she is desperate to escape the nightmares of her past. Her life has become a daily battle not to numb the pain with drugs and alcohol. But her job is something she does better than anyone else – and the only thing that’s keeping her anchored to this world.


A face-off on the waterfront between the unions and big business is just the kind of headline-grabbing story to get her career back on track. But when a female dockworker whose warnings Chrissie ignored turns up dead, she becomes obsessed with unravelling the truth about an accident she suspects was straight out murder.


When a gruesome threat lands on her desk, it's clear someone will do anything to stop her. But this is one battle Chrissie won't give up without a fight... 



‘A gritty tale full of twists, Where the Truth Lies is a page turner packed with compelling characters. An exciting new voice in Australian crime fiction.’  - Jane Harper, bestselling author of The Dry


‘A compelling debut that's impossible to put down!’  - Christian White, author of The Nowhere Child


'A clever, explosive thriller ... I love Kilmore's flawed heroine's feistiness and her determination to take on the old boys' network. A truly impressive debut.'  - Petronella McGovern, bestselling author of Six Minutes.
