Summary
A cleverly intertwined, complex story about families, friends, and relationships. Lauren, whose mother was murdered when she was very young, has always believed her father guilty of the crime. Alex, Lauren's much beloved brother, has always believed him innocent and has even recently pursued the decades-old case to clear their father's name and get him released from prison. When Alex leaves to volunteer with Doctors Without Borders in Iraq and then goes missing, Lauren finally decides to face her own fears, grief, and panic attacks to try to get to the bottom of what really happened to her mother.
Critique
This story pulls you in from the beginning as you travel this long path with Lauren and discover some sinister family secrets along the way. Highly recommended.
