My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story sets off in 1932 on a summer night for two brothers, Joel and Clancy Fitchett. Clancy is unconscious and Joel is the older brother carrying him to rescue. They both “don’t remember” what happened but Joel has a permanent reminder in the form of a face scar.
Thirteen years down the line, they’re still experiencing tremors of that ill-fated night as they’ve made a forever pact amongst the two of them. In the middle of a murder investigation, the brothers decide a course of action that changes their lives forever.
In 1991, college pupil Gary Stark, embarks on a journey to Texas where he believes he’s found his long-lost biological grandfather in Clancy. Clancy’s been missing since 1946 but Gary wants a family in finding his grandfather. Unbeknownst to him, he’s about to discover more than he’s bargained for in sixty years of secrets Joel, Clancy and the love of their life, Lorraine have hidden from the world.
This book has you traveling from WWII to 1992 where we discover concealment, solitude, resentment, and deceitfulness from the fans of these authors.
This is the best thriller and crime book I’ve read in awhile. I love the layers of the story as the mystery of it unfolds through different time periods. It’s fun and addictive to read on a multitude of levels. Fantastic writing from the authors as well. In this almost-realistic feel, I found it inspirational at how much the characters were able to overcome and live through. This was definitely a page-turner. Haunting and unpredictable, it took me to places I never knew I could go. I’ve cried through some pages as well. Action-packed with the way it took us through different times with the characters. Tragic in what these characters had to endure in so many ways. The story is so original and twisted, it leaves you craving more of each page.
