Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Far From the Truth is a work of fiction in the thriller, suspense, and murder mystery sub-genres, and was penned by author Ronald A. Feldman. Containing some content that is only suitable for adult audiences, this thrilling novel takes us to the shores of the US Virgin Islands, where a newlywed ends up dead. His new partner flees to New York City to find the dead man’s previous wife, and ask for help in case she becomes the next victim. This opens up a whole new case for Detective Karl Dieter, and the deeper he digs, the more horrors he discovers waiting to expand on a worldwide scale.

Author Ronald A. Feldman has a real knack for development along the storyline, taking us from what first appears to be an insular and personal narrative of grief and crime, and expanding it out onto a shockingly global scale of international terror and organized crime. The work takes the best of the crime, detective, murder mystery, and suspense sub-genres, melding them to craft a layered and exciting plot for us to follow and guess at. The characters are well developed to fit the plot and express their urgencies, suspicions, and fears, but it is Dieter who takes center stage as a capable yet vulnerable hero. What results is an action-packed and truly exciting read. Overall, I would highly recommend Far From the Truth to fans of crime and mystery fiction who want a unique and well-penned tale to get their teeth into.
