This is an excellent book, a proper page turner from start to finish. Based on real events the novel tells the story of a fictional family caught up in an adoption scandal. The past and present are cleverly interwoven as the mystery unfolds. The author is a great narrator and I especially liked the way she portrayed the back story. The voice of her twelve year old river gypsy is captured perfectly, with an element of Mark Twain’s ‘Huckleberry Finn’., thrown in. A really riveting read!
