A gripping suspense novel that takes you around the world
Egocentric Brent Sandler knows he needs to change his life for the better. He’s hit rock bottom, penniless and in deep trouble as he discovers an awful tragedy lying in wait. The problem is, he knows this tragedy is all down to him and his past actions. Now he’s determined to put things right as the consequences of these actions are rapidly making their mark.
Meanwhile in Bodhgaya India, Peter Cannon has just made a shocking discovery that will change his life forever. Like Brent, he must come to terms with his guilt. But his past, his secret and the woman he loves are slowly hunting him down.
And if they find him, questions will be asked.
The tale of The Burden of Truth is a suspenseful thriller of how these two men are pulled apart and then drawn together as each man tries to fulfil his own quest for happiness. But they are soon to find out this quest is thwart with love, as well as danger, and both are lurking just around the corner.
I have to firstly admit that The Burden Of Truth would not be my first choice of read. Having said that though, I am glad it is one that I have read.
I’m not quite sure what genre I would use to describe it as parts feel like a thriller and other parts felt like one of self discovery. It’s certainly a new one on me but it actually works.
The story is split between India and England. I liked the vast contrast of the countries which adds to this books appeal. The whole Buddhism thread for one certainly interested me as it’s something that fascinates me.
Peter and Brent are interesting characters. Both men I found quite selfish to start with and it did take a while for them to both grow on me. I think readers will be able to relate to them but may not want to admit that they can!
Without a doubt this is a very well written story. It’s one that will pique readers interests and hold it there until the end. I have to say the ending was my favourite part and it certainly left me wanting to see what else the author has in store for us readers.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
