Terrific read. You are a Billionaire, forty-two years old, have no children, and are diagnosed with terminal illness. There is a 50 % chance that it can passed on to the next generation. What do you do? Twenty-some years ago you donated sperm for money. This is his search to find any biological children he may have. What transpires when he finds them becomes a terrifying story. What people will do for money? What people will do to extend their lives? ( )

Like another reviewer, this was my first Linwood Barclay book also. Completely agree this was a unique blend of entertaining and preposterous and spun off the plot rails at the end. It would be fun to watch this as a 'movie' produced by Netflix (or for that matter, as a Lifetime movie).

On the fence about whether to try another Barclay and see if this is typical or to assume it is and skip it. A decent page turner, that's ultimately forgettable - would make a good beach or commute/flight read if you need one. ( )

Imogen, Maple, Sam and Iggy are back for another adventure! This is the second book in the series, but it is stand alone for the most part. By reading the first you will get more in depth information on the world Erin has created, and the characters but this book will stand alone if it is the first you are picking up.

Compared to book 1, this one reads more like a journal entry if that makes sense? There are more dives into Imogens head than the last book.

It does continue the story arc started in book one, while having it's own investigative adventure. I love that there is an over arcing problem that won't be solved but will continue to burden Imogen instead of the book wrapping up peachy keen.

Erin does a fabulous job of world building, I love the magical world she has created within our own and can't wait to discover more about the different kingdoms and how the world politics operate. ( )
