Erin Solomon's childhood was anything but normal. Oh sure she had both parents and friends, her home though was on an island. The island was also the home of a religious group, more of a cult, that her father belonged to. Now a grown woman, and having survived a terrifying fire in the church during her youth, Erin has questions. Too many things don't add up for her and her journalistic mind wants to figure it all out. Enlisting her friend and sometimes lover Diggs, Erin begins to ask questions and investigate the whole Payson Island tragedy in earnest. Strange things begin happening right away and more questions than answers pop up. Erin is forced to face and deal with many of the ghosts from her childhood. Diggs is worried Erin will end up dead like so many of the people connected to the tragedy. He keeps a close eye on her and so does his new friend, Jack Juarez. Slowly Erin begins to piece things together and see a picture that disturbs her more than what she knew before. To add to the mystery, Diggs is acting a little different than he ever has, what's up with that?
A mystery that pulls you in, straps you down and takes you on a ride worthy of a blockbuster movie! The characters are amazing and so real. Their quirks, emotions and fears are right there for you to see. The story is solid and just as a good mystery should be! I was blown away by this one and finished the book ready to dip into the next one. You think you have it all figured out, then Jen Blood sends you on a sharp left turn and introduces more characters. Jen Blood is definitely going on my list of Favorite Authors. WOW!
I didn't find issues except that I didn't have the next one to dive into! *grin*
I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because this mystery, this character, will become one of the more well known ones.
