Amazing story that hits close to home in more ways that I would have imagined when starting the book. The main characters are incredibly engaging and realistic, with dramatic backgrounds and personalities that kept me interested throughout the story. A thriller with great depth that I think will appeal to readers of all kinds. Intellectual, honest, and gripping. I definitely recommend!
