A highly recommended novel to add to your library of well- written books.

Tyora Moody has crafted a suspense-filled mystery full of twists and turns punctuated with wit, wisdom and hope. The characters are well-developed and engaging and, at the end of the book, I found myself wanting more. This is one of those “hang on for the ride” kind of books, and all I can say is that I can’t wait for her next book! I want to go on another adventure!
