It is 1962, and the city of Seattle is about to be famous. Roger Morgan, an audacious young promoter, wants to pull off the ultimate coup de théâtre: the World's Fair. Roger dazzles everyone he meets, and is still a backstage power forty years later when, at the age of seventy, he makes a bid for mayor. Journalist Helen Gulanos is new in town and keen to make her mark, she resolves to uncover the real Roger from behind the glossy receptions - because even Seattle's golden boy must have something to hide.Woven into in this city of dreams is a cat-and-mouse-tale of back-room deals, idealism and pragmatism, the best and worst ambitions, and the aspirations that shape our communities and our lives. Truth Like the Sun is hard-nosed yet profoundly humane.
