She was kidnapped not once but twice and now someone wants her dead because of it... Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn't normal but she's worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator is to be believed, her life is a lie.
Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past, to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother's past but that of a family claiming she is theirs.
Everyone seems to have a story... but who's telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she'll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets, dating back over thirty years.

Could not put this book down
This was a great read, full of mystery, suspense, and kept me guessing. I have already purchased the second book.
Not a very good storyline. Writing and story very disjointed. Might have finally come together in the end but I got bored with it and didn’t finish reading it.
Love this book. It’s captivating with so many twists and turns. It made me think trying to figure out what is really happening, and who was causing all of Bailey’s problems. A few people are trying to kill her. She has no idea why. She grew up in rough situations. She has an attitude that can make her selfish. She has a tendency to run when she feels cornered. It was so hard to put down. A must read for everyone.
