Las Vegas celebrity impersonator, Didi Storm is missing – has been for over 20 years – and her daughter, Remmi just happens to see her mother jump from a tall building to her death. The problem is that the woman who jumped isn’t really her mother, and probably didn’t jump without help. 20 years prior, 15-year old Remmi was hiding in her mother’s car just before going to meet a boyfriend; she didn’t expect her mother to take her twin brother and sister to a remote place in the desert and hand off one of the twins to a strange man in exchange for money. Didi went missing shortly afterwards, and has never been found. Remmi’s boyfriend, Noah Scott, was also in the desert that night, and was also a witness, although he was shot and left for dead. Remmi and Noah, who 20 years later is a PI, team up to investigate.
Lisa Jackson is not only an excellent storyteller, but also very good at developing her characters. She is able to make them stand out and seem like real people. As readers delve into this fascinating mystery, they will feel like they are actually looking in at real scenarios and real people.
The story flows as any good thriller should, and will keep most readers on the edge of their seats. The suspense builds throughout, and readers will suspect different characters as clues are uncovered, but will probably be proven wrong. The real perpetrators won’t surface until the very end.
Lisa Jackson fans will definitely enjoy this novel, as will anyone who likes a good thriller.
