The Truth by Jeffry W. Johnston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Chris wakes up bound to a chair and Derek wants to talk. With the threat of shears poised to cut off a finger for every lie, Derek is determined to find out the truth about the night that Chris shot and killed Derek’s younger brother. But there is a deeper truth that Chris is not willing to share and if that truth is exposed it could me the end for both of them.
The Truth is a realistic drama that will pull the reader in at the start and never let go. The point of view changes from “Now” to “Then” as Chris explains what happened that night and the days following. The entire book (not including the “Then” flashbacks) takes place in a few hours and readers will find themselves devoting that same amount of time to get to the end. Johnston has created a story that keeps the reader guessing about the truth until the completion. A quick read that will appeal to many readers.
