About the author

Bradley West

<p>For readers new to the &quot;Countless Lies&quot; series, &quot;End of Lies&quot; (March, 2019) may be the best jumping off point. For one thing, the themes of Russia&#39;s interference in the 2016 presidential election and the possibility of a deep state coup remain topical in 2019. For another, &quot;End of Lies&quot; is the shortest (110,000 words) and fastest read. If you like &quot;EOL,&quot; then you can go back and pick up &quot;Sea of Lies&quot; and &quot;Pack of Lies.&quot;</p> <p>Explanations of conspiracies fascinate me, but only plausible ones. The &quot;Countless Lies&quot; series addresses various conspiracies or unsolved mysteries in a suspenseful and believable fashion. Of course, I&rsquo;m not offering a definitive solution to riddles such as the disappearance of flight MH370. I hope &quot;Sea of Lies&quot; and &quot;Pack of Lies&quot; prompt others to ask the governments leading the search efforts to share all their findings with the public. Recall that &ldquo;None of is smarter than all of us.&rdquo;</p> <p>I started by trying educate myself. In addition to hundreds of hours of research and interviews, from 2014-2018 I traveled to Burma, Australia, the US and Sri Lanka multiple times to visit many of the sites (and some of the people) depicted fictionally in &quot;Countless Lies.&quot;</p> <p>People ask me what the books are like that they may have seen or read elsewhere. I suspect that if you are a TV person and watch &quot;Homeland&quot;, &quot;The Americans&quot;, &quot;Luther&quot;, &quot;True Detective&quot; (S1) or &quot;24&quot; then you&rsquo;re going to like the &quot;Lies&quot; novels. Movie fans who enjoyed &quot;Syriana&quot;, &quot;Taken&quot;, or &quot;Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy&quot;&nbsp;should be able to have some fun as well.</p> <p>* * * * *</p> <p>I&rsquo;m originally from Ohio but after student stopover in London I headed East and here I&#39;ve stayed for thirty-five years. Along the way, I&rsquo;ve been fortunate enough to live mostly in Singapore, but also logged many years in Hong Kong with stops in Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore and Colombo.&nbsp;</p> <p>If you&rsquo;d like to connect, I&rsquo;m on Twitter @TrueLiesBlog.
