Book Review: 'What Can't Be True' by Bo Thunboe

✰✰✰✰✰ Murder rarely happens in the suburbs. So when  Boy Scouts discover a body in a submerged car in a local lagoon, everyone wants the case. Major Crimes Detective Jake Houser is more than qualified to handle the job, but he soon discovers there are forces working against him. Even his own cousin, Sheriff Bev Warren, seems to be making things difficult for him.

Jake is eager to find the killer and make him pay, but every time he gets close to finding a clue, something gets in his way. With time running out, Jake is determined to uncover the truth, no matter what the cost. Before he can solve the case, he must consider how far he will go to see justice served. Ride along with Detective Houser in this page-turner as he races to solve the crime before someone else gets hurt.

The Bottom Line: This debut novel is dark with lots of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing until the very end. With vivid writing, relatable characters, and lots of action, Bo Thunboe is definitely an author to watch.

Very highly recommended for fans of mysteries and police procedurals, especially those with a Chicago connection. If you’ve been looking for a new series to read, check out the Jake Houser Mystery Series. You won’t be disappointed. I’m looking forward to reading the next book myself.
