The Truth by Jeffry W. Johnston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
My Kindle said....approx time of read 3 hours.
So not a long book to read but cor blimey was it packed with everything
The author has crammed in a lot of interest, lies, secrecy, discovery, and awesomeness into this book.
But its not rushed, its not so 'crammed' that you feel its lacking something, its really not
Its a tale of a young lad whose Police father was dead.
His death leaves the Mother, his younger brother Devon and himself.
Now HE has to step up to the mark and look after his family, his brother especially.
But he is taken hostage.
The story unfolds with him sat in a chair and and recounting life to the person whose held him captive. Hes tied.
The captor holds a pair of shears who taunts him to tell The truth <.b> or he will loose one finger at a time.
Its not a horror story, you can keep your eyes wide open.
All the person wants is The Truth and hes hungry to get it.
But through him telling the truth, what is the truth?
What will it discover?
I learn of some open family dysfunctions that can take place through this revelation.
And I learn that sometimes The Truth is not always as we see it, but as others may see it.
Will The Truth be a good discovery?
Will The Truth free each of them?
Most of all, should The Truth have been told?
This is a wonderfully well written piece of work that I read last night before sleep. It has a quick turn of events that really gut you.
At the end of the day, what is family?
