I was lucky enough to receive an Advanced Reader's Copy (ARC) of The Truth and Other Lies to read before it is released and voice my honest opinion of the novel! I must say, Sascha Arango's first novel was definitely a hit with me. Henry Hayden is an author, well at least his name is on the books his wife writes for him. Martha Hayden is everything Henry could ever ask for, she minds her own business, makes them money, and loves Henry for who he is without really knowing him. Yet Henry still wants something else, someone else. He finds this person in his publisher, Betty, whom he eventually impregnates. So what is Henry to do? Break things off with Martha or do away with Betty? Well the answer is simple, go to the meeting place with Betty and an "accident" is sure to happen. From here, the novel unfolds Henry's dark past, complete with enemies from his childhood orphanage to his life at home. This is a novel that is bound to keep you on your toes and wonder how everything will play out.
Mark your calendars, The Truth and Other Lies comes out June 23rd!
