In my humble opinion, this is Dee Henderson's best book to date. And I would name Dee Henderson among my top 5 favorite authors. If you are looking for a good book to read, run buy this book!
Charlotte Graham shows up behind Bryce Bishop's coin dealer's store with an offer he couldn't refuse--buying rare coins from a private estate that would make him a wealthy man. Bryce's friend from the FBI made the introduction to Charlotte and the more Bryce learns of her, the more mysterious she becomes and the more Bryce wants to know about her. He eventually learns Charlotte is really Ruth Bazoni--the girl who'd made national news with her kidnapping when she was 16 and her subsequent four year captivity. She'd actually been kidnapped with her twin sister, but had kicked her sister out of the van door which saved her sister from the same captivity. Even though her captors had been killed, Charlotte now lived under constant security and enough secrecy that Bryce needed to uncover the layers so he could pursue her. In the course of discovery, he learned that Charlotte was a very wealthy woman. She was liquidating her grandfather's estate (which is where the coins came from) and looked to Bryce to find places to give some of her money. Charlotte maintains she is single for life and Bryce learns it's because of things that happened during her four years of captivity. This case has definitely not been completely resolved.
In this book, Dee Henderson deals with relationships of these characters in a masterful way. She deals with emotions, pain, and past in her character's lives that show a depth that must come from her own experience.
I give his book a high 5 out of 5 stars!
