About the Book


The stunning mystery by “the perfect author to read late into the night” (Clive Cussler).

R.J. Ellory, the bestselling author of A QUIET BELIEF IN ANGELS and CITY OF LIES, is back in a story packed with mystery, betrayal and shocking family history. Annie O’Neill has it all: a cozy Manhattan apartment, a beautiful bookshop and a network of supportive friends --- but her father died in her childhood, leaving a hole she has yet to fill. When a mysterious man named Forrester enters the shop and claims to be her father’s oldest friend, she jumps at the chance to discover more. But Forrester seems much more interested in telling her a story about a ruthless ganglord and a decades-old betrayal. A betrayal that, she will realize far too slowly, has something very much to do with her.
