Another very good book in the Sharpe & Donovan Series. When one of Oliver's kidnappers is murdered on Oliver's property, he begins to doubt what happened to him as an eight year old little boy when he was kidnapped and his parents were murdered. His childhood friend, Henrietta, who is also an M15m, a special government force, joins him in trying to remember clearly what happened. I do hope there will be another book in this series soon.
