By Rupert Holmes Read by Ana Gasteyer and Michael McKean. By Rupert Holmes Read by Ana Gasteyer and Michael McKean. By Rupert Holmes Read by Kathe Mazur. Where the Truth Lies is a tour de force of sinister mystery, sly comedy, grand cuisine, and incredible sex-a sensual, sardonic, neo-Dickensian thriller in which a latter-day Alice careens through the seductive Wonderland of New York and Los Angeles in the dark heart of the 1970s.

Rupert Holmes seats you gently next to an irresistible narrator only to entangle you completely in her twisted . Well, Where the Truth Lies is one of those books.

The ensuing thriller crosses a Dickensian world of deceit and destiny with the slipping glory of 1970s New York and Los Angeles. Every character is so alive with delicious secrets that you’ll never suspect Where the Truth Lies. I was sucked into the "dead girl in the bathtub" scenario because it sounded like a great mystery.

Director: Atom Egoyan, David J. Where the Truth Lies is a 2005 British-Canadian erotic thriller film written and directed by Atom Egoyan.

Where the Truth Lies is a tour de force of sinister mystery, sly comedy, grand cuisine, and incredible sex—a sensual, sardonic, neo-Dickensian thriller in which a latter-day Alice careens through the seductive Wonderland of New York and Los Angeles in the dark heart of the 1970s.This novel of intrigue speeds from one vivid setting to another, all of them factually real even as they are fantastically surreal: a clandestine club in Disneyland with a dazzlingly well stocked bar; a dizzying Shangri-La of a castle hidden away in Burbank; a drive-in movie theater nestled below the most chic streets of midtown Manhattan; an elegant table for four perched thirty thousand feet above the earth. Written by Edgar, Tony, and Grammy Award winner Rupert Holmes (who first came to public attention in the mid-seventies as a singer and writer of story songs), Where the Truth Lies will wine and dine you in wickedly whimsical company, all the while luring you into a labyrinth of ever-sharpening bends and darkening corners.The tale is told by O’Connor, a vivacious, free-spirited young journalist known for her penetrating celebrity interviews and 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 that may have cast one of them as a 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.At once funny, frightening, delightful, and disturbing as it restores the opulent Hollywood and Manhattan of the seventies to their garish glory, Where the Truth Lies drops its veils like a giddy and voluptuous Salome who knows not what reward or punishment awaits her when she is at last naked. It is the work of a master storyteller and wit at the very top of his form.From the Hardcover edition.

When I picked up this book I could not put it down (even though it is definitely dated) because the story and the characters were so interesting - until the last couple of chapters. Left such a bad taste that I was really disgusted by the whole effort.

I'm not a prude but this felt cheap, crude and unnecessary. Great writing devolving into trash. Sad.

Having long been a fan of Rupert Holmes' music (yes, I liked "Escape," but much preferred the musicality of "Second Saxophone" and "Times Square & The Old School") as well as his much-celebrated television show, "Remember Wenn" and his award-winning musicals, I waited, with great anticipation, for the late June 2003 release of his first novel, WHERE THE TRUTH LIES. I sincerely hoped that someone who was so incredibly diversified could enter and triumph in yet another literary genre. To say that I was not disappointed would be putting it mildly. Holmes' novel has such rich, round characters - characters who quickly become real people in the lives of interested readers.
I have to admit that, as an English teacher for thirty-four years, I often have to limit what I read for pleasure. As a result, I developed a system of passing up a book if I wasn't intrigued by the first sentence. In WHERE THE TRUTH LIES, my imagination was instantly captured by the introductory, "In the seventies, I had three unrelated lunches with three different men, each of whom might have done A Terrible Thing." Who could read that and not want to go further to learn about O'Connor, the young, female journalist who quickly becomes experienced, the comedy team of Vince and Lanny, whose humor soon becomes dark and ominous, and their connections with a lightly-veiled Mafia? And just what was this "terrible thing?"
I had to know!
The fascinating things about this novel, however, are the complicated twists the plot takes. One can read the first half and be convinced that one knows the outcome, only to go a little further and realize that nothing could be further from the truth. Only in the last thirty pages does the reader learn, "Where The Truth Lies."
Holmes is, indeed, a master story-teller. His mystery is ripe with rich humor that often had me laughing out loud. However, this writer does not depend on mystery and humor alone; he delves into the lives of even the minor characters so deeply that the reader can truly empathize with them. This work also contains one of the most beautiful, touching similies I have ever seen on paper.
What is, perhaps, the most amazing to me is how a male baby-boomer can write so effectively in the persona of a young female journalist and make this character so incredibly believable, touching, and enjoyable.
Hopefully, this is only the first of several Rupert Holmes' novels because having only one from such a gifted and talented author would be a tremendous loss to the world of readers.

Don't you just hate to get your hands on a good book and you don't want it to end? Well, Where the Truth Lies is one of those books. I found out about this book when I was searching the profile of Colin Firth over at the IMDB site, saw that it had been made into a movie and decided to read the book first. I was sucked into the "dead girl in the bathtub" scenario because it sounded like a great mystery.

But while reading this book, I fell in the love with the characters and the dark humor sprinkled throughout. This story takes so many twists and turns, it's impossible to put down and after I finished those last couple of chapters I realized how many of the clues Rupert Holmes had dropped within the first couple of pages of reading.

This is a real gem and I highly recommend it.

A true page tuner with more twists and turns than blender full of Pina Coladas, from the man himself, formerly known as Mr. Pina Colada. You hit a home run with this Rupe! I’m proud to say I knew you when ( before WENN). Truly, a great read (for those who actually find pleasure in reading.)

Where The truth Lies is a wild ride. Holmes had me on the edge of my seat, laughing one moment, and catching my breath the next. I loved it. It brought me back to the 70s. We were crazy in that marvelous decade. One Man's Music

Ok, I admit it..I've been a Rupert Holmes fan since college (almost 30 years ago) when I was first introduced to his album "Widescreen". I was curious to see how his talents as a writer would pan out, as "Widescreen" has some very witty lyrics. This novel is hardly ground-breaking, but it has an interesting concept, and the writing has some occasionaly clever turns of phrase. In the long run, it is far-fetched and the heroine thwarts "death" a few too many times to be plausible. The book is fine for some light summer reading, but don't expect too much from its pages.

I am very happy with my book and who sent it to me.
