Sean chooses to help the daughter of his host family when he discovers that she plans to fake her own death and vanish into the Gulf. Of course this is not the kind of choice one emerges from unchanged. The book follows a fast paced, ever surprising story that had me slipping out if bed at 2 AM to finish it because I couldn't stop thinking about it. However, the ending failed at giving satisfaction. It could have stopped at any of a dozen other moments in the story and left me with the same sense that the author walked away before the story was complete. Good writing, interesting characters, fast paced plot, so much going for this story but in the end, it leaves you adrift.
Ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger.
Mr Kelly, I would have bought the follow on of this book because you made me care about the characters and your writing is good enough to ensure that I was constantly agitated, waiting to see what would happen next. It's a superb page turner and a true mystery.
Personally I would never knowingly download a book that doesn't end. It's a pet peeve of mine. Please trust us, your readers to keep coming back for more because you're worth the time and not because we have the desperate need to know how the original book continues. Books in a series should have definite conclusions, leaving the reader with either a smile or a sad sigh because another great book has come to an end...but not a grunt of frustration.
When Kayla McPherson decides to fake her suicide and talks Irish exchange student Sean Reilly into helping her, he reluctantly goes along. When her body is found with its throat slashed, Sean is arrested for the murder. But, he’s innocent. Problem: he has no way to prove it. The mysterious man, Jack, who was supposed to be helping Kayla, doesn’t exist. Then an even more mysterious woman, Morgan, shows up and bails Sean out of jail and takes him on the wildest ride of his life.
Kelly takes the reader on a wild ride with this story as well as Sean gets deeper and deeper into a scam that has unfortunately turned murderous. Morgan introduces him to Mr. Banks, the brains behind the operation, but has to try and stay one step ahead of her abusive husband who now knows she’s alive. She also has to teach Sean how to avoid the police—a task made more difficult by Jack’s betrayal.
Curious? You should be by now. A fast-paced story that will grab you by the throat and not let go until it reaches a surprising end.
Although it isn't really clear what they see in him or how the life insurance policies they scam are worth all of the trouble, Sean's and Morgan's meditations on identity and trust and her ability to manipulate him even when he's aware of it make this a very entertaining and thoughtful read. Sean wills himself to do things well beyond his supposed capabilities in self preservation and to prove himself to Morgan.
Does he become an expert at deception by necessity, was it always dormant in him, or was he never really the upstanding, average teen that he led us (and possibly himself) to believe he was from the start?
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
