Title: Naked Truth
Author: Rick Pullen
Publication Date: September 24, 2018
Author Rick Pullen keeps the reader guessing in this sequel to his best-selling thriller, “Naked Ambition,” where readers first met Beck Rikki, a journalist seeking answers to mysteries involving the President of the United States. Ricci is back in action in “Naked Truth,” trying to untangle a web of lies and misdirection at the highest levels of government.
He is summoned by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to a retreat in the Texas desert. Before they can talk, the justice turns up dead. Rikki races to learn why the justice wanted to speak with him and who wanted to stop that conversation from taking place. Just when you think you’ve figured out the who and why, Pullen pulls the rug out from under you in this novel with plenty of twists & turns. No novice to the world of power politics, Rikki’s efforts to ‘peel the onion’ only send him deeper into a world that surprises even this jaded Washington journalist.
“Naked Truth” is the second book in the Naked series by Pullen. “Naked Ambition” was released in May 2016. He is also the author of “The Apprentice,” which is the first in a series about Tish Woodward, a young reporter learning to navigate Washington power and politics.
