Where The Truth Lies

O’Connor, a vivacious, free-spirited young journalist known for her penetrating celebrity interviews, is bent on unearthing secrets long ago buried by the handsome showbiz team of singer Vince Collins and comic Lanny Morris. These two highly desirable men, once inseparable (and insatiable, where women were concerned), were driven apart by a bizarre and unexplained death in which one of them may have played the part of murderer. As the tart-tongued, eye-catching O’Connor ventures deeper into this unsolved mystery, she finds herself compromisingly coiled around both men, knowing more about them than they realize and less than she might like, but increasingly fearful that she now knows far too much.


“A beguiling suspense novel, sexy and surprising, witty and intriguing. I was hooked from the very first page!”

— Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City and Four Blondes

“Days after you finish this book, you’ll still feel the narrator’s voice elbowing through your brain. Fully realized characters, ruthless commentary, and a beautifully dark sense of humor — all masquerading as a hyper-clever mystery. You won’t look at the truth the same way again. “

–Brad Meltzer, author of The Millionaires

“Rupert Holmes seats you gently next to an irresistible narrator only to entangle you completely in her twisted, dark, exhilarating troubles. The ensuing thriller crosses a Dickensian world of deceit and destiny with the slipping glory of 1970’s New York and Los Angeles. Every character is so alive with delicious secrets that you’ll never expect Where the Truth Lies.”

–Matthew Pearl, author of The Dante Club

“Five pages into Rupert Holmes’ Where the Truth Lies, I was intrigued. Twenty pages in, I was laughing. A hundred pages in, my wife told me to turn off the damned light already and come to bed. This is a book astonishing not only for its intricate plot and rich characters, but for the ways in which it finds humor in the darkest of places.”

–Eric Garcia, author of Matchstick Men

“Rupert Holmes is a genius.”
