Pour yourself a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy every word. It's a great read-----a fun ride.
As a freelance writer, Ridley has an innate curiosity about people and their hidden agendas, but she also has a disastrous love affair with denial and a strong streak of stubbornness that is the occasion of more than one life-threatening encounter. At loose ends after a shocking series of violent events, Ridley is slowly coming to terms with the impossibility of her relationship to Jake, although the physical attraction is still irresistible. Just as she is reclaiming herself and a changed identity markedly different from the one of her youth, the FBI appears, looking for answers to questions Ridley cannot bear to entertain. Is her real father still alive? Was his death a sham? And is he, in spite of her memories, more monster than man?
Overwhelmed by too much information, Ridley is torn between needing to know the terrible secrets of the past and her increasing desperation to deny the ugly truth.Read more ›
Unger did not disappoint me! She proceeds with the intriguing story of Ridley Jones's search for her father without a hitch; same ease in writing with a voice so smooth it lulls you into the story with ease. Unger has discovered her true voice and I, for one, am convinced she will go far in the literary field.
Like the first book, Sliver of Truth: A Novel has everything: high drama, exciting action, likable, believable protagonists, and villains you love to hate. Not only is Unger great with dialog, she's a master at pacing the action, and her plot is quite original.
I held my breath, wondering if Ridley ever finds her father? Was her Uncle Max really her father? And was he dead, as she believed, or very much alive as everyone else believed? What did the FBI have to do with Uncle Max? The Armenian mob? And why did everyone want him? How did they use Ridley for their own purposes? And when everyone who attempted to help her ended up dead, how did our feisty heroine fight back?
Doesn't that sound like a winner? A blockbuster of a story? Well, it is! It's a riveting tale of intrigue that I couldn't put down, and I bet you won't be able to, either ... until you learn the answers to those questions for yourself.Read more ›
