This book was truly amazing, it gave an insight into mental illness and had mystery and a bit of a love story as well Everything you could ask for in a book I loved the way the characters were introduced and interacted together The story itself was also very interesting I look forward to reading from P.D.Workman. Very intriguing A paranoid schizophrenic is accused of being the inside man of a jewel heist and he is bound to prove he is innocent Is he delusional or are there really people out to get him
