*The Truth Seeker* is the third novel in the O'Malley series by Dee Henderson (though readers should technically start with *Danger in the Shadows* first). Henderson in a short time has written and published several novels that are sure to please fans of Christian fiction!
In *The Truth Seeker*, Lisa O'Malley and Quinn Diamond are thrown together in an investigation of a lifetime. Lisa, a forensic examiner, is working the scene at a house fire/possible murder, when she is injured severely and forced to accept the willing help of both her family and Quinn. Quinn becomes a valuable part of Lisa's life by supporting her through her recovery and investigating a series of murders that may be related to his own father's shooting death twenty years earlier. Falling in love with each other is an inevitability.
As Lisa and Quinn work around the clock to find out the truth, the other six O'Malleys continue watching over Jennifer as she plans her wedding and continues cancer treatment. And as Lisa struggles with her own past and inability to believe in Christ's resurrection, Quinn prays that Lisa will follow three of her siblings in becoming a believer.
Once again, Dee has demonstrated a fine talent for writing Christian romance and suspense. This is definitely a must read!

This is one of the better O'Malley books (Negotiator and Guardian are the best). Finally, we get Lisa and Quinn's story. Lisa O'Malley is a fascinating character. She's nice, but not very open with people, loves her pets, and tends to become very involved with her work. As she is a forsensic pathologist, this sometimes involves murders. She also has a secret or two of her own.
A man is dead in his house, which was found burning. Suicide...or murder? Lisa's department has ordered a re-investigation of all unsolved murder cases in hopes that new equipment will yield more information. There's something odd about some of the cases. Quinn, Marcus's partner from The Guardian, is trying to solve his father's murder by locating a girl he believes may have seen something, a girl who disappeared the day his father was killed.
And someone's out to get Lisa.
The plot is excellent. I was never confused, and the action parts were interspersed with enough "people" scenes that I was never bored. I loved Lisa and liked Quinn (although he screws up at one point he admits it). Humor, suspense, mysery, and romance are nicely mixed. The four stars instead of five is because: (1) the automatic men-protect-women attitude that came up once or twice is maddening, (2) Quinn seemed too calm at times, and (3) there are too many other O'Malleys in the book and their closeness is nice but not when they start appearing in every other chapter. It is still a great book. Read it and enjoy!

I've enjoyed this series, but there is one inconsistency that disturbed me. DH wrote that Jesus was the first resurrected human. But what about Jairus' daughter, and Lazarus? While the resurrection story was interesting it didn't quite flow for me. As for Quinn and Lisa...I'd be wondering for quite a while why I was the last sister he was interested in. #4 doesn't work for me. Overall, though, DH is improving as an author with more details which are necessary. (such as...what do our characters look like?)
