This book is a mystery within a mystery—it’s so deliciously twisty I couldn’t put it down! Part murder mystery, part police procedural, it will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up!

FBI agents greet Matt Pine at his NYU dorm after a night out, to tell him that most of his family has been found dead while on spring break in Mexico. But this isn’t the first time the Pine family has been in the news under horrific circumstances. Matt’s older brother was convicted of brutally killing his girlfriend, and is currently serving a life sentence. That murder was the subject of a true-crime documentary that changed so many people’s lives, and not for the better. Nothing is quite as it seems though, and it all starts to unravel as Matt, and the FBI, learns more about the truth.

I wanted a little more from the FBI agent’s perspective, and a more in-depth explanation at the ending—the motive wasn’t fully explained to my satisfaction—but it didn’t detract much from my enjoyment of the book. I was hooked from the start and seriously couldn’t put it down.

This would make such a phenomenal movie or tv series. I can already picture it in my head now!
