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.

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.

tangled web

The book takes a common premise--the abrupt, inexplicable appearance of too much money-and explores the intricate web of cause and effect leading to its arrival. Along the way several overlapping stories get fleshed out in interesting ways. The book relies a bit on the television meme where the audience knows information a character does not, which is an effective way to get the reader engaged with and frustrated by a character's actions . . . nonetheless, a few characters in this book seem to overreact and fail to listen in unrealistic or over-the-top ways that are good for prolonging the narrative tension but bad for verisimilitude.
