Twenty years ago little Brian Arlington was kidnapped from his family's Long Island estate and was never seen again. The trail went cold, but investigative journalist Griff Hadley has always thought there was more to the story - much more. When the Arlingtons' patriarch invites him to stay at their estate to research his true crime book, Griff can't say no. It's the story of a lifetime. But not everyone is happy about Griff's presence. Relatives and staff alike regard him coldly, including Pierce Mather, the Arlingtons' attractive lawyer, who is more than a little wary of Griff's motives. When a stranger shows up claiming to be the long-lost Brian, Griff and Pierce are united in their suspicions. Startled to have found an ally in the buttoned-up lawyer, Griff soon realizes it's hard to keep a professional distance. Even in the midst of a groundbreaking investigation, even in the face of a shocking family secret....

Not your typical Josh Lanyon

This book is not your typical JL, but it's one of his best. The story is well thought out, has no plotholes and is captivating as always. However, this is the first time the reader knows more than the protagonist. About halfway through you're already quite sure (and right) about the answer to the main question, but all surrounding circumstances remain a mystery until the end. So, in a way it's anti-climactic but that doesn't make it boring or predictable. It's kind of amusing, sometime painful, to see the protagonist figure out the things you already know.
All in all, a very nice read, but I'm not sure whether or not I like this approach to the storyline. Again, but: It fit the story and made it more realistic, a big revelation at the end would have been kind of too much.
Jeremy York reads the book nicely, characters are easily distinguished and his voice is very pleasent, not affected or otherwise exaggerated (not like some reades who end every second sentence on a sigh, whether the line calls for it or not).
