Review--The Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango

The Truth and Other LiesThe Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Henry Hayden is a best selling author in Germany.  He and his wife live a somewhat modest lifestyle.  He is adored by women and envied by men.  Henry is in the process of "writing" his next great novel, when his editor gives him some disturbing news.  This news sets off a chain of events that will forever alter the lives of everyone who knows Henry.

The Truth and Other Lies, had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning.  Henry Hayden is a character you love to hate. I was afraid of him from the start and very glad he is not someone I would ever have to come in contact with.  With a friend like Henry, who needs enemies.

Everyone loves Henry, but why?  He's not really good at anything, including the writing that has made him so famous.  He's not especially nice to anyone, least of all his wife.  He love her, that is for sure for without her, he would be nothing.  But he struggles to remain faithful and to treat her in the same manner she treats him.

This is one of the best books I have read so far this year.  Highly recommended.

**I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**
