Hear No Lies by Stacy Green

I do not know what happened to me, but I lost the joy for reading this past summer.    I didn't read a thing in July, or August and I am uncertain as to whether I am cured or not.   I love to read and I am just so confused as to why I needed a three month hiatus.   Shocking! 

 I apologize to the authors of the books I have agreed  to read and to those who may depend upon my reviews.

But last night I picked up my kindle and apologized for having ignored it for so long!    And soon I will pick up a hard copy book and suck in the feeling and fragrance of a bound book.

In the meantime, I will share my opinion of Hear No Lies by Stacy Green.   Enjoy!


She’s covered in blood and on the run.

Months before the events of ALL GOOD DEEDS (Book 1 of the Lucy Kendall thriller series), Lucy Kendall is still adjusting to her secret life as a vigilante killer of pedophiles. She’s circling her next target when a desperate teenager begs for help finding a friend lost in the foster care system. 

Jaded and still stung from her experiences with Child Protective Services, Lucy searches for the missing girl and discovers the teen’s foster parent lying dead in his kitchen. 

Lucy knows the police will arrest first and ask questions later. Determined to save the runaway before she hurts someone else, Lucy sets off on her own investigation. 

The stakes are high, and the consequences may be too dire to survive.


Hear No Lies is a novella of 101 pages and it is indeed a thriller.  It is the prequel to the Lucy Kendall series and it did not disappoint.

Stacy Green always produces a well written and well paced thriller with Lucy Kendall as the conflicted protagonist.  Is she right or wrong in her pursuit and punishment of pedofiles?    Does she do the wrong thing for the right reasons and how do her actions and decisions affect law enforcement and the people she is sincerely trying to help?

It's a wild ride with Lucy as she weaves herself in  and out of a teenager's secrets and deranged mind, with bodies strewn along the way...bloody bodies.

After having read all of the Lucy Kendall series, I am not sure that I like Ms Lucy Kendall, but I certainly can relate to her attempts to make the world a better place for the young.

I rated this a five wink read!
