My Review: The Dark Side of Truth is one of the best mystery/Thriller books I have read in a long time. I loved reading this book!  From the beginning to the very end it kept me guessing as to what would happen next. Every scene in this story was like watching a movie inside my head. I felt like the fly on the wall watching it all take place and enjoying every moment of it! When we first meet Will he is a happy go lucky 10 year old who has it all until it all falls apart in the matter of minutes. Then we meet Will five years later and he's had his share of hard knocks for only being fifteen he's been in and out of foster homes and been dealt his fair share of the ugliness life can sometimes throw at us. Still he has finally met a foster family who truly cares and wants to help. Will soon meets Mason and they become quick friends. They decide on a hiking day trip that turns into one of the worst days that has ever happened to them as they stumble upon a dead body and not just any dead body but that of their favorite science teacher. Things take off like wild fire from there as they try discover who killed their teacher and why Will's dad is being blamed. The Dark Side of Truth will have you on the edge of your seat possibly even leaving you wanting to read ahead to discover the truth. Don't do it because you will miss out on a great story! If this is how Gary Caruso writes mystery/Thrillers he can write for me any day of the week. Gary come on over we'll have tea and talk mystery/thriller stories!
