I loved this book. The plot twists and turns through the life of Johnny Merrimon. You like him and want to do all you can to help him on his mission of finding his twin sister. It's one of those books that keeps you looking in one direction and while weaving the true plot in the background -personally those are my favorite kinds. The language is wonderful, almost poetic at times. I've not read Hart's other books, but they are on my list now. I'm a huge fan.

This book is a must read. In fact, once you start reading, you will have a very difficult time putting it down. There is a reason why it was on the NYT best seller list. There are surprises throughout the book. Great thriller even for those that are faint of heart. Well written with several subplots that keep the reader wanting more.

Wow. I LOVED this. An edge-of-your-seat, absolutely riveting mystery. He is the rare writer whose talent actually progresses with each novel. This intricate mystery is his best work so far - with a heart-wrenching and yet beautiful story. It was truly wonderful. I can't wait to read what he publishes next!
