"IT IS STAN," screamed the unhinged monk.
"Stan?" cried the abbot and I in bewilderment. "Who is Stan?"

I realized my mistake, and retyped the line.

"IT IS SATAN," screamed the unhinged monk. "SATAN HAS COME AMONST US!"

Mega-selling author, Marco Ocram, is on the edge of a nervous breakdown, and needs complete rest.

Police Chief Como Galahad—Marco's main character—needs a volunteer to go under-cover at the Abbey, a remote celebrity retreat run as a medieval monastery, where something fishy is afoot.

There's only one solution—Marco books into the Abbey for a detox, just a few days before a hundred A-listers fly in for a grand gala dinner.

Could anything go wrong? Could Marco write a labyrinth of astounding twists to leave all the world's top celebrities moments from an awful death? Will you be amazed by the ending? You bet!

Fast, funny, and utterly different. Welcome to the weird world of The Awful Truth.

About the Author

Little is known of Marco Ocram’s earliest years. He was adopted at age nine, having been found abandoned in a Detroit shopping mall—a note, taped to his anorak, said the boy was threatening the sanity of his parents. Re-abandoned in the same mall a year later, with a similar note from his foster parents, he was homed with his current Bronx mom—a woman with no sanity left to threaten.

Ocram first gained public attention through his bold theories about a new fundamental particle—the Tao Muon—which he popularized in a best-selling book—The Tao Muon. He was introduced to the controversial literary theorist, Herbert Quarry, who coached Ocram in a radical new approach to fiction, in which the author must write without thinking—a technique to which Ocram was naturally suited. His crime memoir, The Awful Truth about the Herbert Quarry Affair, became the fastest selling book of all time, and made him a household name. It was translated into every known language—and at least three unknown ones—and made into an Oscar-winning film, a Pulitzer-winning play, a Tony-winning musical, and a Golden Joystick-winning computer game.

Ocram excelled at countless sports until a middle-ear problem permanently impaired his balance. He has yet to win a Nobel Prize, but his agent, Barney, has been placing strategic back-handers—announcements from Stockholm are expected imminently (and it might not just be physics and litera-ture). Unmarried, in spite of his Bronx mom’s tireless efforts, he still lives near his foster parents in New York.
