Review: Truth Be Told: A Novelby Kathleen Barber
Truth Be Told: A Novel - Kathleen L. Barber

Syno

 

 

Serial meets Ruth Ware’s In A Dark, Dark Wood in this inventive and twisty psychological thriller—formerly titled Are You Sleeping—about a mega-hit podcast that reopens a murder case and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim’s daughter.

The only thing more dangerous than a lie…is the truth.

Josie Buhrman has spent the last ten years trying to escape her family and with good reason. After her father’s murder thirteen years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult and her twin sister Lanie, once Josie’s closest friend and confidant, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now, Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner Caleb, and that’s where she intends to stay.

The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past—starting with her last name.

When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell sets off a media firestorm with a megahit podcast that reopens the long-closed case of Josie’s father’s murder, questioning whether the wrong person may be behind bars, Josie’s world begins to unravel. Meanwhile, the unexpected death of Josie’s long-absent mother forces her to return to her Midwestern hometown where she must confront the demons from her past—and the lies on which she has staked her future.

 

 

 

My Thoughts

 

 

***I received a free copy from the publisher and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!***

 

This was a fun and fast read for me that I enjoyed very much, I enjoyed it actually more than I thought I would.

The writing just had a way to draw you in and I didn’t want to put the book down and wanted to know what is going on.

Of course it goes back and forth in time, between and of course past, but it’s clear early in that we don’t know who is a bigger liar.  Of course there is a lot of Mystery about what really happened that night and every time we think we get it and find out what really, really happened or do we?!

 I also enjoyed all the family drama, past and present and the people around them.

I’m a true crime fan and I enjoy podcasts, so while this is not true crime, it presents itself as such ,it also has the parts of the podcasts and excerpts and such which honestly were my favorite part of the book.

Overall I really enjoyed this book, tons of suspense, kept me guessing and was easy and fast to read.  There were a few slower parts for me, but mostly it was great and enjoyed it a lot.

I hope to find more books like that.

Now that I read and enjoyed the book I might actually check out the TV show but we shall see.

I rate it 4
