The simple truth…It's never what it seems. Young attorney Michael Fiske broke the law when he took Rufus Harms's prison letter from the Supreme Court. But he also sealed his own fate. Suddenly everyone who has anything to do with Harms or his appeal mysteriously dies. Now Michael's brother John, a cop turned attorney, comes to Washington to find out why his brother was murdered—and what it had to do with a crime that Harms committed twenty-five years before. But the one man who can help John, the one man who knows what really happened more than two decades ago—and why—has escaped from prison and is running for his life.

Professional reviews

"This reviewer learned a simple truth from listening to David Baldacci's latest legal thriller: Be patient and give the narrator a chance. Marosz starts the book with a nasal, singsong, whining voice. But when he becomes comfortable with the story, his voice is more expressive and his characters more believable. Truth is the story of the murder of a Supreme Court lawyer-clerk committed to covering up a 25-year-old crime and the resultant miscarriage of justice. The principal character, the clerk's brother, a trial lawyer, sets out with a female Supreme Court clerk to untwist the web of murder, frame-up and complicity. This is one of Baldacci's better efforts. A.L.H. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
