Anatomy of the Truth is a work of fiction in the medical thriller, suspense, and crime drama sub-genres, and was penned by author W. D. McComb. The novel functions as a stand-alone story, but can also be read as a sequel to the author’s previous novel, The Truth That Lies Between. We find ourselves in the company of Jet Townsend, a young man traversing the murky waters of medical school and trying to put the trauma of his past firmly behind him. So when the body of his brother turns up amongst the fresh cadavers, and then mysteriously vanishes again, Jet has nowhere to turn but to the very few friends who might believe him. So begins a fascinating conspiracy that has to be read to be believed.

Author W. D. McComb has crafted a thriller mystery that will surely keep fans of the genre glued to their books from cover to cover as the layers of fear, intrigue, and conspiracy unfold before their eyes. One of the things which I found most impressive about the work was the close narration and character presentation of Jet, whose psyche and heart give us great empathy whilst we watch his confusion and frustration deepen. The suspense amps up throughout the tale with some fantastic moments of exposition in the dialogue, and a keen sense of pacing that knows when to offer clues, and when to leave us reeling in suspicions of our own. Overall, this makes for a totally compelling crime drama, and I would recommend Anatomy of the Truth to fans of the genre everywhere.
