When a six year old girl disappears and calling the police isn't an option, her desperate mother Pernilla turns to an unlikely source for help. She finds a cryptic ad online for a private investigator: Need help, but can't contact the police? That's where Kouplan comes in. He's an Iranian refugee living in hiding. He and his brother were forced to leave Iran after their involvement with a radical newspaper hated by the regime was discovered. Kouplan's brother disappeared, and he hasn't seen him in four years. He makes a living as a P.I. working under the radar waiting for the day he can legally apply for asylum. Pernilla's daughter has vanished without a trace, and Kouplan is an expert at living and working off the grid. He's the perfect PI to help... but something in Pernilla's story doesn't add up. She might need help that he can't offer...and a little girl's life hangs in the balance. THE TRUTH BEHIND THE LIE is Sara Lovestam's award-winning and gripping novel about blurred lines, second chances, and the lengths one will go to for the truth.
