Twenty years ago young Brian Arlington, heir to Arlington fortune, was kidnapped. Though the ransom was paid, the boy was never seen again and is presumed dead. Pierce Mather, the family lawyer, now administers and controls the Arlington billions. He's none too happy, and more than a little suspicious, when investigative journalist Griffin Hadley shows up to write about the decades-old mystery. Griff shrugs off the coldly handsome Pierce's objections, but it might not be so easy to shrug off the objections of someone willing to do anything to keep the past buried.
This was amazing! I won't lie, I had an inkling about the mystery but not how it all would come together. I've been reading mysteries for nearly as long as I've been reading so very few truly surprise me anymore but that doesn't stop me from enjoying them. Having said that, it didn't hamper my need to get to the end to see how it was all wrapped up. And it was indeed a present because it's a great read. Interesting characters that really get your emotions pumped, some you love and others you will hate, even if you don't think you should. Another riveting read by Mr. Lanyon, he truly knows how to pique the reader's interest and keep us coming back for more, and boy do I love coming back for more.
