Brodie Farrell’s business is finding things-missing tea sets, rare books, lost dogs. But this time, she finds a dead body. Is it asking too much of a mystery series to spare us the sorrow of having a baby with cancer? It darkens the story without doing anything for the plot. London gangster Joe Loomis lands on her doorstep one night, bleeding to death from a knife wound. The plot involves a gangster, Joe Loomis, who is threatening Brodie and the baby because he's trying to get back at Jack Deacon (not clear exactly what he hopes to accomplish, but he's a nasty guy).

Brodie Farrell's life, on the surface, is unremarkable. Depths of Solitude is the fourth in her Brodie Farrell mystery series, which began with Echoes of Lies, True Witness, and Reflections. She lives in Northern Ireland. A single mother to one daughter, five-year-old Paddy, in a small seaside town, she spends her days running a "finding agency"--helping clients locate items that have proved elusive by more conventional methods.

It would be easy to categorize "Echos of Lies" a 'thriller' or a good mystery, but to do so would be to take the easy way out. Jo Bannister's novel certainly fits those superficial descriptions--in fact, it rates most highly in the suspense department. But in all fairness to the author, there is much more going on here. "Echos of Lies" is an examination of lies, and lies about lies. Not only is the kidnapping of a young child a lie, all of the relationships which surround Sophie are filled with untruths and pain. And each of the characters who participates in her rescue must create their own deceptions and wrestle with the question of the destructive nature of truth. When should they lie? When is it better to tell a half-truth, or no truth at all? At the beginning of the novel, Daniel Hood is tortured relentlessly for information: the first words he speaks in chapter one are "I don't know...".
And he doesn't know. Miraculously, he survives physically, and confronts his torturers. Miraculously, he unravels the mysteris surrounding kidnapping and death. And at the end, the truth is too destructive to be told. The last sentence of the book is Daniel's lie to the police inspector: "No," he lied. "She never knew, and I never told her."
This book is truly good writing. More than just a challenging read or a thriller, it contains a penetrating depth of thought which makes it intellectually satisfying as well.

I was hoping to find a new British mystery author. Moments of the writing in this book were fine, but generally the writing was weak. Too much explanation where it isn't needed and repetition of information. Deacon and Hood must have the same conversation almost every time they meet in the book. The plot was thin at best.

I love this series. It's part mystery, part believable story about characters you have come to know and care about (from previous books). Jo Bannister was a little known (at least to me) gem of a writer.

Characters are interesting and the quality of the writing is excellent. The story is unusual and thought provoking revolving around integrity at many levels. Fascinating and I look forward to reading the next in the series.

"Echoes of Lies" by Jo Bannister is a very challenging book to read. At least it was for me. From very nearly the beginning, Bannister challenged every concept I had on the notions of justice, law, retribution and forgiveness. Jo Bannister really pushed the envelop with this novel.
The plot has already been reviewed rather well, and to discuss it any more would give away plot developments that could spoil things for those who haven't yet read this 'must read' novel. So, I'll stick to what I liked about "Echoes of Lies." The solution to the criminal act of who tortured Daniel Hood, and why is resolved a quarter way through the book. This leads private detective Brodie Farrell and Daniel to another crime and another innocent whose life is at stake. And the identity of the mastermind behind that crime was quite easy to guess as well. No, it's not the crimes or how Daniel and Brodie arrive at the solutions of these crimes that makes this book such compelling reading, but rather the manner in which Bannister makes the reader examine concepts such as punishment of the crime, justice, retribution and revenge. Daniel, the victim of torture, is a character that many will seldom come across, whether in fiction or in real life. The question that nagged at me while I read this book -- is Daniel doing the right thing? -- haunted me even after I had finished the book. This is a book that makes you think and question the accepted social mores about justice and retribution. And is what ultimately makes "Echoes of Lies" such compelling reading.
Bannister did an excellent job in the pacing and execution of the novel -- each new development in the mystery led to an even deeper one. And I liked the manner in which Bannister made each new incident development in the mystery result in the 'fleshing out' of characters as well as insights into their motives.
"Echoes in Lies" is an excellent read. I finished the book in one go -- I simply couldn't put it down. It's not quite the traditional mystery novel, but is a great read nonetheless. Here's my advice: run (don't walk) to your nearest library/bookstore and get this book!

Following her divorce, Brodie Farrell opens up the Look For Something? Shop. Brodie takes on clients seeking to find things or people. When a woman asks Brodie to find a man, she agrees to accept the case because the client insists the person in the picture conned her out of money. A few days later, Brodie locates the mark and provides the information to her customer.

Not long after completing her assignment, Brodie sees a picture of the man she found accompanied by an article in which the newspaper states he was tortured and killed. Brodie admits to the police her role in the victim's death only to learn he remains alive in a hospital under watch. She asks for absolution and receives it from the victim and soon Brodie and Daniel become friends, joining forces to track down the person who hired her. Soon the plot thickens as they find the torturers who thought Daniel was part of a scheme to kidnap a child.

This novel is quite different than the Castlemane series, but remains a solid tale. Brodie and Daniel are interesting characters with strong moral cores that takes them outside the law to do what each one feels is right. ECHOES OF LIES is a combination character story packed inside a Bond-like thriller.
