Stranger Than Truth

Stranger Than Truth

(1946)
A novel by

 
Vera Caspary, the famed author of Laura, gives us another gripping crime drama, told through shifting points of view.

John Ansell, young and idealistic editor of Truth and Crime magazine, wants to breathe new life into the stale and formulaic publication. Instead of rehashing a story that's already been proven popular elsewhere, he finds a fresh one: the murder of Warren G. Wilson, famed figurehead of a correspondence course. The murder itself isn't too remarkable - just a bullet in the back - but the victim is another case, as it becomes apparent that despite having a household name, nothing is known about him. Perhaps even more peculiar is how Ansell's boss absolutely refuses to run the story and, soon thereafter, Ansell is poisoned.

Caspary masterfully allows the truth to slowly untangle in this incredibly woven mystery, finally available as an ebook.
