Emma Perez is a wildlife activist. She has discovered something. Something is killing off the wildlife around Tucson. She is determined to find out what is causing it. But, when Emma is found murdered, it opens up a whole new sinister conspiracy.

I loved book one of this series. This one left me confused in places. The plot is a little complex and tends to take detours. It sort of missed its mark. But, it is still a good story. I just felt the first one is better.

I will also say…this author has some great characters! Plus, Costa and Quinn have fantastic chemistry!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review. ( )

This has a lot of suspense that leads to twists and turns. It is interesting to see how different people handle being undercover. I loved how the team of FBI went in to try to uncover one thing and end up being involved in more than they bargained for. I really like Matt, Kara, Ryder and the rest of the gang. I hope there are many more in the series. I have not read the first book in the series but I was able to follow who all the characters were. I look forward to reading the first book in the series. I received a copy of this book from Harlequin for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

Tell No Lies by Allison Brennan
Quinn & Costa #2

Detective Kara Quinn is on leave from her job with LAPD working with FBI Agent Matt Costa and his mobile unit. She is a “cop” through and through but is unsafe in Los Angeles. Matt & Kara worked together in book one of the series, had a romantic interlude, and now are working to find the murderer of a college student who was killed while searching with her boyfriend for a toxic waste dump impacting the dessert environment. With team in place the story begins just after Billy rushes Emma finds Emma and tries to save her. Will the team be able to find the murderer? Is toxic dumping taking place and if so, by whom? Will the romance between Matt and Kara continue? And, what else will be unearthed as the story unfolds?

What I liked:
* Kara: intelligent, quick thinking, loves her job, a chameleon, does what it takes, uses her childhood con artist skills in her current undercover jobs, interesting, fierce, capable…someone I am becoming more and more invested in.
* Matt: intelligent, a bit of a workaholic, work has impacted his relationships in the past, cares about his team, an enigmaMichael, interested in learning more about him.
* The relationship development between Kara and Matt – not much at first in this book but see a great deal of potential as the series progresses.
* The complexity of the case: started simply and became more involved as the story progressed.
* The FBI team members: Michael, Ryder, Zack – the bits and pieces about each one that were shared in this story made me wonder about them and want to know more. It will be fun to see how these characters (and others) grow as the series continues.
* The many threads, that at times seemed too many, all being pulled together by the end of the story. Better than a simple plot executed quickly.
* Billy: I felt for him and hoped that in the future he would heal and be able to move on. I also wondered if he might end up joining the FBI when he finishes school.
* Frank: Emma’s boss, a good man, haunted, focused, provided a safe haven to more than one in the end.
* The dark, gritty, harsh, realness that immersed in the story.
* The twists and turns.
* That there was a resolution to the case even if some were not 100% satisfied with the results

What I didn’t like:
* Knowing that such things happen all too often
* Having to wait for book three ;)

Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin-Mira for the ARC – This is my honest review.

Tell No Lies by Allison Brennan is a very highly recommended procedural and the second novel featuring detective Kara Quinn and FBI agent Matt Costa.

A young college intern is killed when out looking for a copper refinery's toxic waste dump site that she believes is responsible for a number of dead birds she has found in the area. Her death brings in FBI agent Matt Costa and a team to quietly, undercover, investigate the copper mine and their waste removal company. Included in Costa's team is Detective Kara, who finds an undercover job as a bartender, and Michael Harris, a former Navy SEAL who takes a job at the refinery. The refinery owner's son becomes an informant and Kara becomes friends with him at the bar in order to keep an eye on him.

The undercover case becomes more complicated when another death occurs and suddenly the case may be about more than toxic waste dumping. It becomes evident that there are even more nefarious activities going on in the area that are dark and disturbing. The team must figure out if all the disturbing evidence and clues are tied together with the refinery dumping or if they have even more illegal activity going on in the area.

Tell No Lies is a sequel to The Third to Die, which was on my list of the best procedurals of 2020. Although this is a very different case and the novel has a comparatively slightly slower pace at times, it is still features a wonderfully entangled, intricate plot with timely events happening. Tell No Lies can be read as a stand-alone novel as Brennan provides enough background information while providing more character development. Personally, I could have done without the relationship between Matt and Kara heating up, but on the other hand it worked well as a part of the over all plot. They both continue to be great characters.

The writing is excellent and will hold your complete attention from start to finish. The overall narrative presents a solid, meticulous mystery and the investigation follows the clues in an orderly, logical manner. Because this is a sophisticated novel that demands you closely follow the clues and action in the plot, you have to pay attention while reading. You'll also need to keep track of all the characters and their stories. While you might be able to predict parts of the ending, you won't know all of it and will experience several heart-stopping moments when the action is overwhelming.
