Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a major TV series from Apple TV+, produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine! Starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer and Aaron Paul.

Truth Be Told - formerly titled Are You Sleeping - is an addictive psychological thriller about a hit podcast that reopens a murder case and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim’s daughter.

The only thing more dangerous than a the truth.

Josie Buhrman has spent the last 10 years trying to escape her family. Following her father’s murder 13 years before, her mother ran away to join a cult, and her twin sister betrayed her in an unimaginable way, leaving Josie alone.

Now Josie finally has a happy new life in New York with her fiancé, Caleb. The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past - starting with her last name.

When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell re-examines her father's case on her hit podcast, Josie’s world begins to unravel, and then the unexpected death of her mother forces her to return home.

Now she must confront the secrets from her past - and the lies on which she has staked her future.

Not often the TV or film is better, but ...

With this title, skip the book and watch the show.

It’s such a shame, the idea is great, but the writing isn’t, and highly emotional and whiney pitch of the narration makes it worse.
