Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally AWESOME!!!!!!! This was the best book I have ever read. It goes between past and present back and forth until Michael aka Robert will come to closure with his terrible doing. This has so much suspence and I read it like right through the weekend with almost no breaks. I barely sleep. It was sooo awesome. Another awesome book is Lucas by Kevin Brooks or Brooke. It's kinda long but it is like sooooooooo awesome!

Editorial Reviews
