Author: Axton Betz-Hamilton
In this true crime memoir, an award-winning identity theft expert tells the shocking story of the duplicity and betrayal that inspired her career and nearly destroyed her family.
The Less People Know About Us is Axton Betz-Hamilton’s attempt to untangle an intricate web of lies, and to understand why and how a loved one could have inflicted such pain.
Axton “presents a candid, shocking, and redemptive story and reveals her courageous effort to grapple with someone close that broke the unwritten rules of love, protection, and family,” said a review in goodreads.com.
Melanie Thernstrom said in a review for The New York Times that the book “is intimate and engrossing but can also have a claustrophobic, cluttered feel in its thicket of details. As many memoirs do, it includes experiences that were personally formative but are extraneous to the narrative.”
The Less People Know About Us was written in collaboration with Ashley Stimpson, a talented freelance journalist and professional ghostwriter who describes herself as a “story surrogate,” said the review.
