Publisher's Summary

Jake Harris' life hasn't turned out the way he planned. Battling his addictions, and the shattered pieces of his family, he is hired to ghostwrite a memoir. From the 1920s story of a controversial evangelist, to the present day mystery of a former District Attorney, everything changes when his search for the truth leads to an atrocity hidden from history. With a past he can't remember, he begins to discover that he is not the person he believed himself to be. Rather, he is a threat to a secret society that has remained in the shadows for nearly a century. Jake is drawn deep inside a world he never knew existed that brings him closer to his own extraordinary destiny.

This book kept me up trying to finish it

I have a love-hate relationship with books that you can't turn off. on one hand it is fantastic to be able to get so immersed in a book that you can't tear yourself away. On the other hand that means you lose out on sleep, end up going places late, or canceling altogether; I may have been guilty of all of the above.

I finally turned this book off at 3 a.m. last night, when I could not stay awake any longer to finish and couldn't wait to get away alone so I could listen to the rest today. This book spans history you start with what looks like a current murder, in Los Angeles, and you end up learning a lot about a charismatic Evangelistic preacher from the prohibition era.

Tying all of this together is a government born Secret that is horrifying but at the same time was done with the right thought in mind, but oh that's a situation should never have happened.

I will definitely be on the lookout for other books in this series, the author really has a way with painting precise pictures with words not all those pictures are gorgeous but you will remember seeing them.
