The truth will set you free. Can lies do the same?
Within minutes of arriving in the exotic, enigmatic, sweltering city of Marrakech, renowned author Jaspar Wills is kidnapped, blindfolded, bound, and beaten. As Wills struggles to survive the ordeal, he recounts his rise to fame and the tragic events that led him to Morocco. With the kidnapper’s demands left unmet, Wills faces death with fear, grief…and guilt. Is what happened in the past tied to his abduction? Is someone he loves responsible? Or is this payback for his sins? Living with a loss far greater than his own death, Jaspar yearns to be set free. But do some kinds of freedom come at too high a cost?
Six months later, struggling reporter Katie Edwards travels to Morocco to stake her claim on the story with everything—international intrigue, mystery, celebrity, violence, sex, heartbreak, betrayal. Once there, she discovers a shocking truth. As the young journalist’s career soars, Jaspar Wills’ is destroyed…until an act of revenge leads to a stunning revelation that will change everything.
This book was amazing. It is fast paced and full of twists and turns that I never saw coming and it has plots within plots that keeps the reader on the edge of their seats. This was the perfect read for this time of year with all the suspense. This is probably by far my favorite book I have read this month. This was the first book I have read by this author and it definitely want be my last. This book was sent to me by the author through booktasters on twitter in exchange for an honest review. Stay tuned for my full review next week.
