Goodreads asked Peter Best:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Peter Best The Burden of Truth evolved from many ideas really. However, even though part of the story is set in India the main idea came after I had a conversation with a very old but very wise monk in Sri-Lanka.
The conversation I had with this man will stay in my head forever. Now I don't want to say what was in this conversation as that would give away the plot of the story and certainly give away the twist at the end. Not only this but the hidden message of the novel.
