    This is another nice fast paced and intriguing detective mystery from the author s Ella Marconi series Over eight books we have come to know Ella quite well and it was nice in this one to see her possibly settling into a firm relationship with prospects The story was a little bit predictable I kept thinking of Gone Girl but it was still very readable and definitely page turning Sadly a few paragraphs at the back of the book indicate that Katherine Howell is now taking a break from Ella Marconi w [...]

    4.5 sRowan Wylie was a paramedic who worked with Stacey Durham, so when he drove into Playland in Homebush with his granddaughter, Emelia for her usual treat, he was a little surprised to see Stacey s car in the carpark in front of nearby buildings But when he checked the car out, he was shocked to see what looked like blood on the front passenger seat and a lot of blood at that Detective Ella Marconi and her partner Detective Murray Shakespeare were quickly on the scene with forensics checking [...]

    It was with sadness that I read that this is to be the last book in the Ella Marconi series, at least for now while author Katherine Howell takes a break to finish her nursing training This has been a terrific series, cleverly combining and often intersecting the trials of being a paramedic with the life and work of Sydney detective Ella Marconi Katherine Howell is very good indeed at depicting the ordinary everyday lives of ordinary people and the problems they get themselves into This episode [...]

  5. David

    An enjoyable enough read without reaching the heights of the previous books in the series IMO A well thought out plotline with lots of twists and turns to keep the reader on their toes And it is obvious that Katherine Howell knows her stuff, particularly when it comes to the medical paramedic portions of the storyline I did however, have an issue keeping track of some of the many characters Maybe it was just me, but I thought at one point, maybe some interesting memorable different character na [...]

  6. Pete Loveday

    The latest book from this talented author is possibly not up to the usual standard It is believed that this is to be the last of the Detective Ella Marconi series This has been a wonderful series and has now tired.The author is a great story teller, but it does seem time that Ella Marconi was retired and whilst Ella is her usual masterful self, the characters in this tale do not appeal in a complex plot.However, there are many twists and turns before all is revealed As usual, Katherine s books a [...]

    I stayed up til the wee hours to finish another great installment but I m shocked that this is the final book in the Ella Marconi series for now Not ready for goodbye

  8. Elisabeth

    I did the audio and I jumped into the middle of this series because I like the reader It got the job done keeping me entertained and away from depressing news on my commute but I m not clamoring for another.

  9. Karen Brooks

    I was both so looking forward to reading this book, Tell the Truth by Katherine Howell and, frankly, dreading it Excited because I think Howell is an extraordinary writer who has a light yet masterful touch when it comes to creating utterly convincing characters, great dialogue and a plot that lures you in I relish a new work by her and it s moved straight to the top of my must read pile I was also dreading reading this book because of these exact same things only this time burdened with the kno [...]

    I find myself regrettably writing a review for most likely the worst book I have ever read in this case listened to per Bolinda Audio read by Caroline Lee.The basic story and plot are slightly feasible, however Katherine Howell the author fails miserably trying to introduce characters around the plot Side issues are not handled well either, especially the love life of the lead detective, and antics and yes I have to say antics of Detective Ella Marconi are nothing but laughable She commits the f [...]

  12. Jill Robertson

    Tell the Truth by Katherine Howell is the last of her 8 part Ella Marconi detective series The author gets 4 stars for the suspense, intrigue and drive she sustains throughout the book A woman has gone missing and her car is found with a goodly amount of blood in it the husband is distraught, but then receives a cryptic text message to Tell the truth which he doesn t understand Howell introduces lots of characters, many of who are only incidental to the story, which I guess is to show the innume [...]

  13. Rhonda

    Loved lots of things about this book and the series in general the sensible female detective Ella, other female characters, an insight into the world of paramedics, the setting of my hometown Sydney, the characters But the actual plot or mystery was the weak point of this one, like others in this series The series of inter relationships between the characters was too much for me and the resolution was just ridiculous It did well to convey a sense of how much police effort is involved chasing dif [...]

  14. Catherine Lee

    This is a great example of a classic detective story, the kind that I love Something s happened, and the police investigate a series of leads and dead ends until they get to the truth There s enough happening along the way to keep the pages turning, the lead investigator and her partner are good at what they do, and the addition of details about their private lives enhances rather than detracts from the story The characters are all good creations, and they behave in ways that work with the story [...]

  15. Junipa

    I did enjoy this book but not as much as Howell s previous ones I knew this was to be the last in the Ella Marconi series and it felt like it A lot of loose ends tied up wrt Ella s life.Although there were paramedics in the book, they weren t as prominent as in earlier books, which left me a bit disappointed OK, the missing woman was a paramedic but the others in the book weren t out and about, paramedicking, as it were They were secondary to the search for Stacey.A few loose ends left me feelin [...]

    Read this one ahead of the author visit I m organising for Arana Hills Library s 40th birthday celebration on 6 June see tonbay.qld subI m always partial to a well plotted crime novel, and this was just that The characters were engaging and the storyline had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing I had an idea who might have dun it and I was right, but I was way off on all the detail about how.This was my first Katherine Howell novel Not sure why i started at the last book in the series, bu [...]

    Well, there goes the weekend That was my thought as I collected my reserved copy of this book from the library As usual, Katherine Howell s narrative didn t disappoint I devoured the book within 24 hours Nothing else that was supposed to get done like cleaning got done as I was riveted to the tale Highly recommended as an enjoyable book to read just make sure you have a clear 24 48 hours ahead of you as you probably won t be able to put the book down either.Can t wait for the next book from this [...]

    OMG what can I say I am shattered No Ella Marconi It just can t be Katherine has taken her readers on a fabulous journey through eight novels featuring Ella, her detective mates a whole lot of paramedics I have loved every single one and Tell the Truth was another huge success I was trying to figure out what was going on with the missing paramedic, but didn t Lots of twists kept me guessing Can only hope that one day, Ella will return to the page and we can all find out what the future holds fo [...]

  19. Kerrie

    TELL THE TRUTH just confirms what an excellent story teller Katherine Howell is, and what a wonderful journey she has taken us on with Ella Marconi in the last eight years.In each of the titles different paramedics interact with crime and an investigation conducted by Detective Ella Marconi The setting is Sydney and, while each could be seen as police procedurals, they also attest to the Australian lifestyle and the multicultural nature of Australian society.I m not sure that I felt that the plo [...]

  20. Helena

    I have read the series and so bought this one The humour that I enjoyed in the series was largely missing in this book Attempts at humour became heavy handed and insensitive By contrast, the pathos was strong.Overall, a disappointing read.I do recommend the other books in the series though They feature a fresh approach to telling stories.

  21. Karen

    This is the end for now of the Ella Marconi series by Australian thriller writer Katherine Howell Full review at Newtown Review of Books.

  22. Cookie1

    I love Katherine Howells books and this one was no exception Has Ella found happiness in this story Possibly so as it is to be the last Ella Marconi novel for a while at least How sad I have thoroughly enjoyed her stories I wonder what Katherine will write next Whatever it is I will be eagerly awaiting them.

  23. Sandra Shannon

    The last book in the Detective Ella Marconi series for now I really enjoy these detective stories set in and around Sydney Like wearing a comfy pair of shoes, the stories always feel comfortable with enough red herrings to keep you guessing.

  24. Any Length

    The of the Ella Marconi novels I read the I like the characters and the I feel drawn into their lives Another really good who done it suspense novel by Katherine Howell Loved it Can t wait for the next one.

    This is the swan song for Ella Marconi, written in the usual gritty style that characterized the previous novels in this series A bit lame at times , an interesting read all the same.
