Reviews of Turning Secrets

With a satisfying ending and a clever twist or two, Chapman ensures that her fans will look forward to the next installment. 

Kirkus – Turning Secrets

An intricate and disturbing tale, Turning Secrets is nevertheless very much a chronicle of our troubled times. Chapman perfectly captures the dark side of contemporary life and the nuanced range of characters that inhabit it, from calculating and manipulative villains to their guileless and unsuspecting victims, and those merely caught up in the crossfire. The result is a satisfying story that never sacrifices honesty to achieve an easy end. Yet another fine novel from this talented and insightful author.

Jim Napier Ottawa Review of Books – Turning Secrets

Brilliantly adapted from current serious crimes our society faces today.

The crime investigation itself is excellent reading as the plot unfolds. The stories of the lives are the major crimes unit also have a sub-plot that makes you want to know how their lives unfold and what happens to them.
