Genre: Adult Fiction -Psychological Thriller
ARE YOU READY FOR THE TRUTH??? I sure as hell wasn't....
NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING was what it appeared to be, yet EVERYTHING weaved together flawlessly with a JAW DROPPER ending.
A man with no compassion started to feel compassion.
A man with no regrets started to regret.
A man who NEVER apologizes, apologized.
Claire's ability to ADAPT produced CHANGE.
Claire's decision to adapt provided her with a wealth of knowledge. She has learned from the master and now she can use it to her advantage.
In Truth Claire is released from prison after doing an eighteen month stint. Shocked yet grateful she seeks solace in sunny California with an unexpected friend. But happy day's of freedom don't last forever because when Tony get's word of her release....Well....Let's just say he is none to pleased. His unhappiness however does not stem from her newly found freedom but from his loss of control. AND the fact that he still wants her. Which is something he never anticipated.
A new game begins with a host of new players. Unbeknownst to him, puppet master Tony is no longer pulling the strings. Because there is someone more EVIL lurking around to take out both him and Claire. And the new puppet master is ten times colder, twenty times more calculated and very much determined to win.
Truth takes off with a BOOM and keeps up the momentum at high rate speed; with it's perfectly spun web of events that are mind consuming. Romig has crafted a well developed plot, strong characters and jaw dropping story lines. This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time as the truth was slowly revealed piece by piece. I consider this series A MUST READ! You will not be disappointed!
