The first three words in the blurb - danger, deception, and conspiracy - jump off the page from the get go and never let up. Layers and layers of deception are peeled back as Nina gets closer to the truth. I found myself rooting for her protector, and worrying about him as well. Nina must go to Shadow Creek, the small town where her father died in an accident. She was with him, but only a small child and can't remember the details. Everyone in town is owned by some mysterious thug, and anyone who tries to help her suffers loss. Anderson, her protector, risks his life to save her, and is surprised by what he gains in the end. Nina's quest provides answers that she never expected, and her life is changed forever. I really enjoyed this story.
