Summary
From the cryptic opening, which ends with a New York Times reporter finding her husband bleeding to death, Unger grabs the reader by the throat and doesn't let go. Meanwhile, the FBI informs Ridley Jones, a magazine writer, that her late uncle, Max Smiley (who's really her biological father), is still alive and being sought by assorted international players on all sides of the law. Rapidly finding that little in her life is what it seems, Jones is horrified to be confronted with evidence indicating that Smiley is a misogynistic monster of the first order, who may have played a role in the murder of the reporter's husband. Ridley's late, beloved uncle Max, it seems, was really her father, a complicated man with a dark, twisted side. In this sizzling sequel to Beautiful Lies, a shadowy figure in a trio of photos prompts Ridley to wonder whether Max is indeed dead. Unger's plot bursts from the starting gate and never lets up, as Ridley pieces together the puzzle that is her past. Just a footstep or two behind her is rogue FBI agent Dylan Grace, who has his own distressing motivations for wanting to know Max's whereabouts. The deeper Ridley digs, the more she doubts herself and the "uncle" she thought she knew
