Rumours & Lies is a captivating collection of fifteen short stories by Canadian author Timothy Quinlan. The stories are fused with memorable characters, humour and irony, and enough twists and turns to keep readers engrossed and entertained. A middle aged political candidate must weigh an opponent’s indiscretion against his own need to be loved. Ego and the competitive culture at a law firm cause two partners grief as they struggle with the cost of humility. A wife and mother navigates the complexity of a night at the local emergency ward. A thief realizes that there is art in everything as he administers his own brand of justice to an unsuspecting couple. A very bad magician determines that he’s a pretty good mathematician and turns the odds in his favour. His young broadcasting career in tatters, a middle aged radio personality must choose between apathy and righteousness in dealing with his landlord. A man’s fear of irony creates an unescapable quandary. Things might not be as they appear when a young couple worry and fret for an elderly friend who taps into the magic of the holiday season. His lemonade stand a success, a young boy harnesses his creative spirit in dealing with the complexities of having cash. A naïve man goes to a casino to play poker for the first time and proves that perceptions aren’t always reality. A guilt ridden brother determines that forgiveness is only divine if all sinners are on board. A happy man, a horse that can’t lose, and an approved credit card authorization leads to a tough conversation between friends. An aging Canadian member of parliament must avoid the condescending barbs of family and friends and use his perceived frailness to his advantage in order to serve his country. A wedding between two parents of four proves that beauty is in the mind of the beholder. The chance to spend time alone motivates a couple as they deal with all the nuances of family life, and redefine the prize that awaits. Rumours & Lies is a book for everyone; from young adults to those with a little more seasoning. If you enjoy reading stories that tap into the irony of life, and don’t mind the odd twist and turn, you’ll enjoy this book.
