Famous bestselling author, loving husband, and generous friend—Henry Hayden has it all … or so it seems.

What does it matter that his novels are in fact all written by his loving wife?

But when Henry’s carefully constructed life is threatened, and his attempt to solve the problem leads to the death of his wife, it starts to look as if everything might fall apart. As Henry weaves an increasingly complicated web of lies, half-lies, and half-truths in a deception which is as entertaining as it is dark, he remains a compelling character, evading the consequence of every action as he plays off the police, his publisher, his friends, and, above all, his past.

For fans of Tom Ripley and Herman Koch’s The Dinner, The Truth and Other Lies is a dark, clever, and hugely entertaining thriller introducing sociopath Henry Hayden.
