Synopsis

For his Broadway musical The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Rupert Holmes became the first person in theatrical history to solely receive Tony Awards for Best Book, Best Music, and Best Lyrics, while Drood itself won the Tony Award for Best Musical. The Mystery Writers of America gave Holmes their coveted Edgar Award for his Broadway comedy-thriller Accomplice, the second time he received their highest honor. He created and wrote all four seasons of the critically acclaimed Emmy Award–winning series Remember WENN, and most recently authored the Broadway hit Say Goodnight, Gracie, based on the life of George Burns. Holmes began his career in the seventies as the writer and composer of songs so intricate that many have been included in mystery collections from Ellery Queen. The Los Angeles Times has stated that “Rupert Holmes is an American treasure.” Where the Truth Lies is his first novel; the film rights have been acquired by Atom Egoyan, director of The Sweet Hereafter. Holmes is currently working on a second novel for Random House, to be published in 2004. From the Hardcover edition.
