For this to be Lesley Halís first book, I have to say that I am very impressed. I donít have a lot of free time to read, but I was at my sonís basketball game missing all his shots because I could not read this book fast enough. It was a wonderful read. Interesting, a definite page turner that takes you to places you would never have dreamed. I think I was so caught up in it because the events were so unpredictable, and left me with my mouth hanging open.
