Publisher's Summary

A thrilling tale of suspense from the CWA Diamond winner and best-selling author of the Roy Grace series, read by Matt Addis.
Susan and John Carter are crazy about each other, and life is perfect but for one thing - they are on the brink of financial disaster. Surely being a surrogate mother to another man's child won't harm such a strong relationship? Especially when the mysterious Mr Sarotzini is offering to save their home and business - everything they've worked for.
What seems to be a perfect solution begins to feel like an impossible situation. Susan's pregnancy is disturbingly painful, but no-one will tell her why. It becomes apparent that Sarotzini wields immense power, and Susan begins to doubt everything she knows. As she realises the terrifying origin of the dark forces Saratzini controls, she is in fear for herself and John - but most of all for her unborn baby.
Featuring a new introduction read by Peter James.

Unpalatable Peter James

What did you like best about The Truth? What did you like least?

Am struggling to finish this book, but am able to comment in spite of not having reached the end yet. I quite like the reader's voice (timbre, tone and reading skill).
I definitely did not like the graphic descriptions of the violent scenes. Clearly the characters are by nature weird and so certain parts of the story difficult to digest, to the point where I was asking myself if a "normal" person (the author) can actually invent such nastiness. I have read all the Roy Grace books as I hail from Brighton and once wrote a mail to PJ expressing my enjoyment of his books. I certainly can't say as much for this one....

What was most disappointing about Peter James’s story?

The graphic descriptions of violent scenes.

What aspect of Matt Addis’s performance might you have changed?

I felt his performance was generally good especially for the male characters. Obviously a male actor trying to imitate a female voice is never going to really work and here it is made worse by also trying to produce a credible American accent....but a good try!

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Certainly not, if the film were to depict the violent scenes equally realistically.

Any additional comments?

I have stuck with it as, in spite of its frequent nastiness, it IS a thriller and, inevitably, I want to see how it ends. Hope the moment of revelation comes soon as I really want to put this listen behind me!!

A bad copy of Rosemarys baby

I’m so disappointed with this book. I truly love Peter James , Roy Grace books and would review them highly, but this in my eyes is a badly written version of rosemarys baby. The differences being it’s not set in New York, we don’t get to know the neighbours as such and John isn’t an actor , in my eyes the plot used was this but with subtle changes, really disappointed with this
