Truman Locke is a television executive. His job - to seek out extraordinary people and stories to put on TV - gives him a license for adventure; freedom to go almost anywhere and do almost anything, so long as he's successful. In the past, he always has been. Now, things are going wrong. Under mounting pressure, his maneuvring and risk-taking start to slip out of control, bringing trouble and danger to his ordered world, jeopardizing everything.

In Some Things You Should Know, this talented but flawed anti-hero tells his own story - one of lies, crime and complex relationships. It's a page-turning thriller, inspired by the realities of life in a glamorous but treacherous industry, exposing them in a way no book ever has before.

Written by a leading television producer, Some Things... is as well a thought-provoking, gripping and unflinching true story about television for people studying TV and working in the industry.

Truman's experiences show what it's like to work at TV's cutting edge: what motivates TV producers, how they think and behave, and what it takes to succeed in a cut-throat creative business.
