Synopsis

"Fascinating. . . . Handles this touchy material with integrity, tugging on our hearts even as she ties our nerves in knots. Salter writes with chilling authority."-Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Salter has graced her protagonist with a compelling and likeable voice in the tradition of Patricia Cornwell."-Library Journal

"An impressive achievement."-Dick Adler, Chicago Tribune

Forensic psychologist Breeze Copens has a gift. She not only hears the truth, she also sees it. So she knows when Daryl Collins-a born-again but remorseless con jailed in Seattle for armed robbery-is lying. What she doesn't know is the identity of the -little girl in a blue dress with yellow daisies who appears suddenly in her line of -vision during her interview with Daryl. And Daryl isn't telling.

A heart-stopping thriller, its twists unexpected, its suspense mounting as the steely Breeze attempts to make hard evidence of her intuition, Truth Catcher sets the leggy, red-haired forensic expert on an increasingly treacherous course. It takes her eventually to Dallas, where she falls headfirst into the investigation of an unsolved murder of a four-year-old girl (in a blue dress with yellow daisies) a decade earlier. More dangerously, it puts her in the path of Daryl's half-brother, a creepy drug lord who goes by the name of Trash.
