Will Jason discover the truth about his life. Will he find his brother? Will he learn that sometimes truth is really not true at all.

An excellent mystery with a lot of twists and turns. The characters are truly believable.

This is an amazing read as is all of AJ’s books. She is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. I have read all of her books. If you are not a fan of AJ, you will be after reading just one of her books.

Highly recommended.
