About the Book
She says he’s perfect.
I know he’s lying . . .
Ed finally meets his daughter’s boyfriend for the first time. Smart, successful and handsome, Ryan appears to be a real catch. Then Abbie announces their plan to get married.
There’s just one problem. Ed thinks there’s something off about Ryan. Something hidden in the shadows behind his eyes. And it seems that only he can see it.
Terrified that his daughter is about to marry a man who is not as he appears, Ed sets out to uncover Ryan’s secrets. But the more he digs, the more he alienates Abbie and his wife Claire, who are convinced that Ryan is The One. And Ed has reasons of his own for wanting to keep his daughter safe. Reasons that may be affecting his judgement.
As he becomes increasingly obsessed with his future son-in-law, Ed’s own life begins to go into freefall. With the wedding date approaching fast, can he finally find the evidence to prove that Ryan has been lying to them, before it’s too late?Amazon
Ed Collier knew it in his bones that his daughter’s dashing new boyfriend is just not what he says he is. A decorated army veteran, volunteer for elderly care, good job, good looks and too charming.. And too good to be true. But none of his family seem to see what he sees in his future son-in-law. Especially not his daughter. So he begins his own search. Search to discover dirt on this mysterious man. Just to protect his daughter. But had he gone too far? Too close to danger?
T. M. Logan’s thrillers are filled with tense and suspense that keeps the reader hooked with absolute entertainment. The chapters are crisp, and the drama just heating up as the premise progresses. This one is no different. I loved it how the narrative shifts between the characters before the big reveal and even though the climax comes out a bit over dramatic, it’s still written in a pacy way, full of adrenaline pumping and all that. Just the perfect entertainment for a weekend read and Mr. Logan never disappoints his fans.
Many thanks to the publisher for my early copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
