In Search of the Truth is dedicated to my betas, Loui and Molly,
and to the members of the PhilosophySphere
Fan Fiction Forum. It's thanks to your support, interest,
and encouragement that this story was written.

Summary: A series of vicious, escalating attacks leads Sandoval to the discovery of a shocking secret; meanwhile, Liam receives several shocks of his own.

In Search of the Truth is the fourth story in the series Dreams, Memories and Truths; it follows A Father's Dream, A Close Encounter, and Surprise!. It would be advisable to read those three stories first (particularly "Surprise!"), as the events in In Search of the Truth continue directly from them.

Credit is due to the following people:
    Robyn, from The Sentinel fandom, for providing me with basic medical information for Chapter 1.
    My beta Loui for providing the inspiration for the name (and meaning of the acronym) for the material in Chapter 3.
    My betas Loui, Molly, and Michelle for Liam's title in Chapter 9.
    My beta Loui for the correct spelling of the word 'Sowulo' in Chapter 12.

Flashbacks are taken from the following sources:
    Chapter 12: The first season episode "The Joining", and the second season episodes "First of Its Kind", "Atavus", and "Redemption".
    Chapter 13: The first season episode "The Joining", the second season episodes "First of Its Kind" and "A Stitch in Time", and Chapter 5.
