When a mysterious fire destroys his home and shatters his family, Jacob Wells is pulled into a downward spiral that draws him ever closer to the past he thought was dead and buried. Now his twin brother Joshua is back in town, seeking to settle old scores and claim his half of the Wells birthright. Jacob's wife Renee is struggling with her own past, and her attempts to salvage Jacob are driven by guilt and ambition.
As Jacob and Joshua return to the twisted roles they adopted at the hands of cruel, demanding parents, they wage a war of pride, wealth, and passion. They share a poisonous obsession with the provocative, manipulative Carlita, whose immigrant family helped build the Wells fortune.
Joshua wants other things, too, but Jacob's desires are divided between the forbidden love he can't possess, the respectability he can never have, and the revenge he is dying to taste. Renee has dark motives of her own. If only Jacob could figure out which of them to blame...but the lines of identity are blurred, because Joshua and Jacob share much more than blood. Now the childhood games have become deadly serious.

I loved the twists and turns this story takes.
I love a story that keeps me thinking about it long after I have finished. This is one of those.
