it was amazing

Deadly secrets, family ties, and quantum physics keep the pages turning in this first-rate SF thriller from Sheean.

The siblings, Marnie, Matt, and Lucy’s lives are turned upside down after the news of their parents, the brilliant quantum physicists, Daniel and Francesca Dalton’s suicide arrives. There is no suicide note; the house is sold; and all their assets, including money have vanished into thin air. As days pass and answers to their questions remain unanswered, the siblings realize they have to move ahead in their lives. But were their parents really as cold-hearted as it appears?

Sheean keeps the suspense high as the trio struggle to dig out the truth behind their parents’ decision while the narrative moves back in time and shocking revelations unravel.

Though family ties, human drama, and political and scientific intrigue stay at the heart of the story, Sheean expertly conveys complex family dynamics, finding room for insight and love in the midst of tragedy while her graceful touch gives the characters a rich complexity and depth.

The novel is sure to win Sheean many fans.
