About the Author

Karina Kilmore is a writer and newspaper journalist with more than 30 years' experience. Under the byline Karina Barrymore, she covered almost every major business scandal and financial event since the 1987 global share market crash and has written for US, UK, Australian and New Zealand publications. Her first novel, Where the Truth Lies, was shortlisted for the prestigious Unpublished Manuscript Award at the Victorian Premier's Literary Awards in 2017. Born in Wellington, New Zealand, she now lives in Richmond in Melbourne. She is working on her second book.


Where the Truth Lies is a clever, gripping thriller with complex characters and chilling secrets at its core. Karina Kilmore's flawed heroine takes us through Melbourne's gritty underside in a desperate quest to uncover the truth. The investigative journalist battles to piece together a dark puzzle of unexplained deaths, big business, trade unions and media manipulation. I love her feistiness and determination to take on the old boys' network. This compelling story touches on so many hot-button topics that you'll keep thinking about it long after you've finished the last page.

'Reading Karina Kilmore's Where the Truth Lies, I was reminded of American author Sara Peretsky's first books. And she writes fluently, her descriptions often lyrical. There's every chance we're seeing the beginning of a substantial antipodean series that will inform and analyse while it entertains' * The Australian *
