Yet as Valle eagerly starts investigating, he finds himself the only one who cares about getting the story right. As he starts checking facts, and unveiling lie after lie, he finds himself completely alone and negotiating a dark trail of corruption, cover-ups, fraud, and murder that stretches back for decades.
The more he discovers, the closer he gets to the heart of a conspiracy that threatens to destroy him. From a seedy after-hours bar in L.A. to a remote cabin in the woods to the dark corridors of a psychiatric ward, Valle is desperately seeking redemption in the truth.
But, as the boy who cried wolf so many times before, will anyone believe him?
"First-rate entertainment....Siegel keeps the paranoia level high even as he imbues his story with ethical overtones and a hilariously snarky sense of humor." (Booklist)
