Four Faces of Truth is a historical novel by former CIA officer Harriette C Rinaldi about the relentless rise and deadly legacy of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia. It was published earlier this year by Fireship Press. Rinaldi spent 27 years in the CIA including a stint in Phnom Penh from 1972-75. The story is told by four fictional narrators who present their own perspective of the rise of the Khmer Rouge and the damage that was done. The timeline stretches from the early 1960s through to the present day, weaving the four stories, much like the famous faces of the Bayon.
