Really enjoyed this book, it was full of suspense & action with a little bit of inner thoughts, highly recommend it👍🏻
I enjoyed this book very much! The storyline hooked me from the beginning and never let go.
Great start to the trilogy!
Love! Love! Love! Sophie is a university professor whose life gets thrown upside down after the death of her father, even more concerning are the voicemails from her father right before his death. . Sophie doesn't know who to trust but ends up finding Damon to help her. This is a thriller story with a bit of romance but all amazing. I cannot wait for the next books in the trilogy, we are all incredibly lucky to get two more novels in this series. I wasn't able to put this page turner down and neither will you!
