From the opening pages of TRUTH IN ADVERTISING, the reader is plunged into the world of Finbar Dolan who works at a New York advertising agency. The writing is crisp and the storytelling propels the reader into the characters and scenes. John Kenney has crafted an excellent first published novel.

Like many people, Fin wonders if there is value in their work in advertising. He asks his boss, Martin, "Is it enough? What we do?"

"Martin stares for a time. "No. It's not enough. Relative to a trauma surgeon or special ed teacher or UN AIDS worker in Uganda, no. It's not nearly enough. But I'm not any of those things. And I'm okay with that. I like what I do. I think what we do has value. Good companies matter to people. Their products matter to people." (Page 296)

If you are looking for excellent writing, get TRUTH IN ADVERTISING. I recommend it.
