Publishers Description: From the author of the highly acclaimed and prize-winning The Broken Shore comes another extraordinary achievement. Truth is about a man, a family, a city. It is about violence, murder, love, corruption, honour, deceit--and truth. Inspector Stephen Villani, head of homicide in Melbourne, Australia, has a full agenda: a murdered woman in a penthouse apartment, three men butchered in a sadistic rampage, a tattoo-faced drug dealer corrupting his rebellious daughter, a crumbling marriage. As these seemingly unrelated events begin to unfold, Villani finds himself immersed in an unfamiliar world of political scandal and ethical ambiguity. He must navigate the inept bureaucracy that is the police department, all while maintaining a solid front and trying to keep the press, his family, and his own past from breaking him completely. With each twist and every turn of this taut crime novel, Villani is forced to question whom he can trust. Villanis life is his work. It is his identity, his calling, his touchstone. But now, over a few sweltering summer days, as fires burn across the state and his superiors and colleagues scheme and jostle, he finds all the certainties of his life are crumbling. Author PETER TEMPLE moves into the territory of The Bonfire of the Vanities and J.M. Coetzees Disgrace with a masterpiece of modern fiction. Truth is the the sequel to his bestselling The Broken Shore, winner of the Duncan Lawrie Dagger for Best Crime Novel.
