    Ridley Jones is trying to get on with her life when a seemingly mundane act - picking up a few envelopes of prints at a photo lab - puts her at the nexus of a global network of crime. The shadowy figure of a man appears in almost every picture she's taken in the last year, lurking just far enough away to make identification impossible. Now the FBI is at her door, some serious bad guys are following her every move, and the family she once loved and relied on is more distant than ever.

    Dont buy this book before reading Beautiful Lies. It will make little or no sense (hence the negative reviews from the other readers) It does follow on from where Beautiful Lies left off, which helped tie up a lot of loose ends and provided a perfect opening for a whole new twist to the story. The second book is not as well written as the first but I was so wound up in the plot that I didn't mind too much. It IS fiction; very much so. But that is the appeal of this book. The idea that nothing and noone is what they seem keeps you hanging on to the very end. If you are looking for believable, go buy an autobiography instead. The pre-requisite for this story is a little imagination.

    If Ridley Jones had slept 10 minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the beautiful lie she used to call her life. She would still be the privileged daughter of a doting father and a loving mother. Her life would still be perfect, with only the tiny cracks of an angry junkie for a brother and a charming drunk with shady underworld connections for an uncle to mar the otherwise flawless whole.

    Overall

    I put off buying this book on several occasions because of the readers reviews and finally relented after reading the writer recommendation for the third time. I will admit that if you are an action film type and prefer everyone to state their intention in less than 5 words using no more than two syllables per word, then you will hate this book. If however you actually like reading books, then you will appreciate the authors efforts to paint the scene and express her thoughts and feelings. Although I feel 5 stars is too generous, I wanted to express how strongly I disagree with the other reviews. I am an avid book reader (both normal and audio) and thoroughly enjoyed the book. I strongly recommend it and upon completion immediately bought the follow up book Sliver of Truth.
