If you are looking for a read full of intrigue to start your year this is a book you will want to check out.”

"What a cool book. This book had a little bit of everything, a little bit of coming-of-age for Jack, a little lost love kind of thing, a little thriller, a little secret national security operations, it was just a whole lot of stuff, easily packed into one book. I easily finished this one in a day because each chapter is fairly short but written in a way that you keep telling yourself you're going to just read one more."
