Publisher's Summary

Single mother Amy Parkens feels trapped by a boring job, low pay, and no time for her young daughter. But that's before $200,000 in cold, hard cash arrives in an unmarked box. Desperately needing the money, Amy fears a setup or a connection to her mother's suicide 20 years earlier. So she sets out to find the source.
A decent, responsible small-town doctor, Ryan Duffy didn't expect to inherit a fortune from his electrician father, who had millions stashed away in the attic. Did it come from extortion, robbery, or some other terrible crime? Painful as it is, Ryan is drawn to his father's dark past, determined to find the truth.
Desperate for answers, Amy and Ryan soon cross paths on a dangerous quest that takes them through a labyrinth of deception and blackmail - leading them to a man of unfathomable power who holds the key to their fortunes...and their lives.

Oh What A Tangled Web We Weave...

Oh What A Tangled Web We Weave... When We First Practice to Deceive...

This story explores the intricate web of cause and effect of unexpected "found" money. As moral and ethical questions of who and why are explored, this story takes many unexpected twists and turns as desperate answers are sought. As the story develops, several surprising yet supporting back stories are exposed and detailed.

As the publisher's summary synopsis states, $200,000 in cold, hard cash lands in Amy's lap unexpectedly at a time when she desperately needs it. But Amy is concerned about ethical issues related to the money... Is it some kind of setup? Should she keep the money? Ryan is in a similar boat because he and his sister inherited millions of dollars from their deceased-middle-class father. Where did it come from? ... extortion, robbery, or some other terrible crime he had committed? Ryan's remembrance of his father becomes tangled. Did his father have a dark past which nobody in the family knew anything about? Did he deceive his entire family?

Narrator George Guidall is a masterful narrator.

Captivating but no likable characters.

I found the book interesting but due to it's continuous nagging sensation that I just did not like any character and because of this there was no strong affinity for the book. I kept forcing myself to keep listening because of the plot but got no enjoyment from reading the book due to not feeling a bond with any of the people in the book. I would not buy the book a second time if given the opportunity. I got no satisfaction from reading the book.
