THE TRUTH Orion 2017.JPG

Suspense-lovers have much to be excited about as ten of Peter James’ classic backlist titles are republished by Orion including SWEETHEART, FAITH, HOST, TWILIGHT, DREAMER, ALCHEMIST, POSSESSION, DENIAL and PROPHECY. It marks an exciting period for Peter James fans, as the chilling suspense novels are brought to an audio audience for the first time. THE TRUTH, a dark tale of one couple’s desperate measures to avert financial ruin, is the first to be released in a 20th Anniversary Edition paperback today following the audiobook’s December publication. THE TRUTH audiobook, read by Matt Addis, features a new introduction read by Peter himself.

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...
