When Vanessa, a self-reliant eleven-year-old girl, witnesses a grisly hit-and-run accident, the victim entrusts her with a chilling secret. She finds herself thrust into the center of a supernatural drama, one that includes betrayal, murder, revenge, and the human spirit's determination not to die.
Now an unwitting ally of Duke Carter, a hard-drinking redneck who claims he's "never ben 1 fur reedin n ritin," Vanessa feels compelled to do what she can to help. Should she believe Duke's story? It's difficult, despite his adamant assurance that what he's written is the onnest trooth.
“The Onnest Trooth is a horror story that, while reading, I kept having flashbacks...
...to Stephen King's early short stories. When I read the final sentence my first reaction was to say out loud, ‘Oh f**k me!’ While Duke's writing may be difficult to read at first, you will get use to it. It is definitely worth the effort and would not be his story if told in cleaned up version. It really helps you to get into the character of Duke and be able to hear him speaking. Duke has a compelling story to tell, one you will not easily forget.
The Onnest Trooth is an edge of the seat, hang on for the ride and leave the lights on type of read.”
