Moments of Truth is a poignant volume of stories in which a range of characters undergo some form of epiphanic transformation. The stories take place in a wide variety of contexts, including Ireland in the late nineteenth century and the early years of the twentieth century, to modern day New York. There is even an apocalyptic story set in a precarious future followed by a moving postscript.
Preston Niblock’s wife dies in a fire that destroys the last business standing in the way of Palace Parade, a new shopping mall. He uncovers the truth about the development, so is bribed to keep quiet. But the local shopkeepers put out of business enlist the support of a crusading councillor, brilliant accountant, and backing of Preston’s ill gotten millions.
What could go wrong?
