“A thriller that grabs readers and doesn’t let go, skillfully twisting, turning, and manipulating its plot for maximum impact.” Donovan, eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

When 19-year-old Jack miraculously recovers from a serious head trauma, Maggie is sure her luck has changed. But when she's abducted by a shadow from her past - a phantom with dangerous sapphire eyes - it's up to Jack and his younger brother Tom to unravel the mystery and save their mom from a deadly psychological battle.

The brothers seek help from their colorful great aunt, who exposes them to a world of nefarious family secrets, explosive government conspiracies, and a series of horrific murders. Together they must navigate a dark underworld full of political subterfuge and class warfare. But as they search for their mother, Jack's changing—he’s raked by skull splitting headaches and weird visions. How exactly did he recover from his coma, and how does this tie into the man who’s abducted their mother?

Will Jack and Tom save Maggie before Cooper reaches his shatter point? Does Jack have enough time left?

            "My Thoughts"

The synopsis said it all. This is a thrilling captivating read that I enjoyed. Ms. Jeff wrote a beautiful well written book. I can tell that hard work went into it because each page I turned I was intrigued. There's never a dull moment in this book, and I am happy I read it. I was a  little bit scared because of what they went through to save their mom. Its good that they cared enough to search for what their mom, I don't think I have that much courage but I would be determined. Find out the ending for yourself because I was..... well let me not spoil it. Mr. Jeff you really put on my thinking cap.
