Maybe I’ve told that version of the story so often,
that I can’t remember the truth of it anymore.’

Dara Gaffney is fresh out of drama school when she lands the leading role in the revival of Eabha de Lacey’s hugely successful yet controversial play.

Based on the true story of the death of Cillian Butler, many claim that Eabha had an ulterior motive when she penned it. Cillian’s death remains a mystery to this day, and Eabha and her brother, Austin, the only witnesses.

As the media storm builds and the opening night draws closer, the cast find it harder and harder to separate themselves from the characters.

As the truth of Cillian’s fate becomes clear, Dara’s loyalty to her role will be irrevocably questioned as the terrible history starts to repeat itself…


Mysterious, tense, and moreish - the twists will keep you turning the pages to uncover the dark truths lurking within
Doireann Ní Ghríofa, author of A Ghost in the Throat
Rosemary Hennigan is a confident, original new voice in Irish writing. The Truth Will Out is a compelling study of obsession and manipulation, charged with menace and tragic inevitability
Such a clever premise, compelling characters and brilliantly plotted
A stunning literary thriller... It's tense, beautifully written and with a propulsive and claustrophobic feel throughout. Think Tana French meets If We Were Villains.
A dark and masterly woven thriller that, like the play within it, kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. Rosemary Hennigan is an exciting new voice in Irish fiction
