Truth Be Told (Rogue Justice #2)

A torrential two-day storm has cut off the small town of Solitude, Oregon, from the outside world. But for police officers Stevie Duncan and her husband, Zane, the ravages of nature have nothing on the nature of man. In the last forty-eight hours, a child was a mute witness to a double homicide; an unidentified body has washed up on the riverbanks; and now, at the foot of a submerged bridge, two FBI agents have been found shot to death inside the...

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.This is the end of a story that began in Twisted Truth. The action is intense and the series, both books together, is just wonderful. Two short, fast and intense novellas with two different couples providing the point of view make this 10 book series, Solitude, Oregon Series, very interesting and compelling reading. In Twisted T...

    I have said it before and I will say it again...I think that Kendra Elliot is an under rated Author who does not get the attention that she deserves. Everything I have read by her, I have really enjoyed. This Novella, although enjoyable, was my least favorite of her work.This book is #2 in a series and I did not read the first one. Would have that cause me to enjoy this book more? Perhaps. I do believe that I was given enough of the backstory to ...

    If you read Twisted Truth and felt it ended too soon and you needed more, then this is the answer. This is the second novella in the Rogue Justice series which is one of the follow up series to the original Rogue River series. This series is a collaboration between Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh. The writing styles of Ms. Elliot and Ms Leigh are very complimentary and the collaborative effort works well. (I would however, definitely recommend re...

    Way too short. This author always delivers. For such a short story it was well written and complete. Though it almost felt like this was the ending to the series. That would be a shame. I really enjoy these characters. Stevie and Zane are my favorites. Now to search for the next book.

    This is the concluding book in the Rogue Justice series about one missing little boy, a murdered wife and a missing $10 million, which started in Twisted Truth by Melinda Leigh. We follow police officers Zane and Stevie Duncan, a husband and wife team, as they come across the bodies of two FBI agents who were supposed to escorting Liam, the boy found chained in the basement in Twisted Truth to safety. Instead, he is once again missing along with ...

    3.5 stars A missing child, dead FBI agents, a torrential rain - once again, Solitude is a hot bed of crime. This tiny town has an amazing amount of crime, particularly murders and kidnapping. Even including the larger county as a setting, it stretches credibility at times. I'd love to see the police on a case outside of town for a change of pace. Anyway, "Truth Be Told" picks up shortly after the first book ended. The boy who was rescued in the f...
  • Rabid Reader
    This second book in the Rogue Justice series is an excellent murder, mystery story. It is suspenseful and exciting. Even though it melds perfectly with book one (Twisted Truth by Melinda Leigh,) it can just as easily be read as a standalone. It is a trilling story of a missing boy, murdered FBI agents and a killer loose in a town isolated by rising floodwater. As with the other Rogue series’, the Taylor family remain the core characters, concen...
  • Ami
    Direct sequel to Melinda Leigh's Twisted Truth -- despite the different author and different couple. In here, the boy that was found chained in the first book goes missing again, this time with his uncle, while the Solitude police officers deal with two dead FBI agents, and of course being cut off from outside towns as the rain pouring down the area. This definitely answers my question about the case, because Stevie (a patrol officer) and Zane (t...

    So, the first part of this story was in Twisted Truth by Melinda Leigh BUT it wasn’t a cliffhanger. This story continued looking for the bad guys who’d kidnapped 6 year old Liam in order to get to Liam’s dad. Then, this story continued with new police officers, the town still about to be swept away from all the rain for days on end, and new bad guys. This time it was Zane and Stevie, my personal favorites, although I really do like the whol...
  • Kathy Martin
    The story begins with Stevie being called to the scene of a car accident to discover that the two FBI agents who had come to escort kidnapped Liam and his Uncle to Seattle have been murdered and Liam and Marcus are missing again. With rains pouring, rivers rising, and bridges under water, Stevie and her husband Zane know that they have a murderer trapped in Solitude. Besides the missing Liam and Marcus are also the missing Dodge brothers who had ...

    Truth Be Told wraps up the thrilling story started in Twisted Truth. Another sensational opening that includes two FBI agents murdered and the young boy who went through so much in the first, being being missing again. Police Chief Zane Duncan and his wife Stevie are in charge of the case of the murdered FBI agents and the missing boy as the whole town of Solitude is cut off from the outside world due to flooding. They realize that the killer or ...
  • Sarah
    Truth Be Told is the 2nd story in the Rogue Justice series. I was initially drawn to this series because Melinda Leigh is one of my favorite authors. This is my first Kendra Elliot story and it will certainly not be the last. It flowed seamlessly from Melinda Leigh's Book One although I think there was enough back story that it would do fine as a stand-alone. This story was extremely light on the romance side of things but was a jam packed murder...
  • Carolyn
    These books are so good. I just wish they were full-length novels! But, great to visit with old friends from previous books. ;)
  • Book Him Danno
    Just like book 1 in the Rogue Justice series 92 pages goes by so fast but Kendra Elliot packs a punch keeping readers on a run and when they finish they want to start the book all over again.Readers have to read book one in the Rogue Justice series to full understand what is happening in book two. Even though it is two different perspectives it is still a continuation of the first book. The characters stay true to who they are while introducing a...
  • Cris
    I typically avoid novellas like the plague--they’re too short, story and character arcs are too short and unrealistic, and I’m typically left unsatisfied. Most of the time, the shortest I’ll go is short novels by a select group of my favourite long-form authors. The one exception to my novella rule: Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot’s Rogue novella series; I just love the small town of Solitude, Oregon, and the quartet of characters (Stevie...

    Truth Be Told by bestselling author Kendra Elliot is the second book in the exciting new Rogue Justice series. A gripping, chilling, suspense that's a definite must read! This story is a continuation of book #1, Twisted Truth by Melinda Leigh, and things are definitely heating up. Zane and Stevie, now finally married (yay!!), get called out to a double murder scene that happens to be the FBI agents that had been working the case since the beginni...

    Truth be Told is part two of the Rogue Justice series which is actually a complete standalone book that happens to just continue an existing storyline that started with Twisted Truth. Initially, when I first started this duology it was kind of confusing. For one, the world-building has already been set up in previous books (all part of the Rogue River series) and of course the characters have already been established as well. Another thing was th...

    Another winner from duo Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot!Conclusion to Rogue Justice Novellas, Truth be Told was told from Stevie and Zane Duncan. For long time readers like me, yes, they’ve married, and now we got glimpses of their marital life.

While the police force of Solitude tried to put...

    Wow.. this novella had so much suspense my jaw is aching from all the teeth clenching I did. Kendra's books should come with mouth guards to protect your teeth haha.Murders, kidnapping, and embezzling are keeping the small Solitude Police Department busy. A two day storm has high water keeping roads in and out blocked, and a murderer trapped in Solitude. Stevie and Zane have their hands full working to keep the town safe from the storm, while try...

    Continuing with the Rogue Justice novellas, Kendra Elliot brings closer to the unsolved and “Twisted Truth” (Melinda Leigh) in the final book “Truth Be Told”. Stevie and Zane are brought into the crosshairs of the case when the little boy and his uncle disappear and two FBI agents are killed. Truth Be Told is the ending and the final book of the Rogue Series co-written by Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh. It is always a treat to read more ...

    “Truth Be Told” is the second Rouge Justice Novella written by the talented Kendra Elliot set in the fictional town of Solitude, Oregon in the Rouge River Valley. Stevie Duncan comes from a local family of law enforcement officers and when she happens upon an SUV with two dead bodies she knows that it is the FBI agents that were charged with taking a kidnapped child home to Seattle. Zane Duncan is Solitude’s Chief of Police and Stevie’s h...
  • Diane Saul
    This is the 2nd novella in the Rogue Justice series. It could be read alone but I would suggest reading both in order. The town of Solitude is cut off from the outside world by flooding. There is a missing boy and 2 dead FBI agents. The killer or killers are also trapped by the flooding. The local police can’t call for help and it is a race against time to find the missing boy, hopefully alive. This is a great mystery book that will hold your i...

    I'm a big fan of the Rogue River novella series that is written by Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot. Each author writes alternate novellas in the series. 'Truth be told' is the second book in the 'Rogue Justice' series and written by Kendra Elliot. It provides a conclusion to the storyline of the double murder and the child witness. While I did enjoy 'Truth be told' I thought it became a bit convoluted. Trying to keep track of who the bad guy was,...

    4.5*sI never know what kind of a twist there’s going to be in this little series. But, I’m never disappointed! I thought I had it all figured out, then BOOM! Which is why I love this Author (and Melinda) and this series. Stevie and Zane had their hands full that’s for sure. The twists and turns kept me turning that pages and waiting to see what happens next. The family dynamics, the surprises, and the chaos that happens in the borders of th...

    Loved It!Truth Be Told is a novella, so it can be read pretty quickly. It is the second part to Twisted Truth so it wraps up the whole story about Liam. At the end of Twisted Truth it seems everything went ok. But Truth Be Told opens with three murders during a rain storm that has made the small town an island, with no entrance or exit. As the mystery unfolds and more characters are introduced, you see a web of deceit that has been spun. Just whe...
