Twenty years after celebrity impersonator Didi Storm disappeared in Las Vegas with her young twins, abandoning her teen daughter Remmi, a woman dressed to look like her jumps to her death from a San Francisco building in this twisty, suspenseful romantic thriller from bestseller Jackson (Ruthless). The apparent suicide of Didi’s look-alike, which Remmi witnesses, follows the publication of a true crime tell-all chronicling the events of Didi’s disappearance. With the help of her long-ago flame, Noah, Remmi desperately attempts to uncover what happened to both her vanished mother and her twin siblings all those years ago, while Det. Dani Settler with the SFPD reopens Didi’s cold case. Their separate investigations reveal a tangled web of lies, money, and familial betrayal. As Remmi gets closer to Noah and narrows in on the truth of her past, an unnamed marksman hunts her in her present. The many threads of this action-packed, female-driven mystery are tied together by the mesmerizing, larger-than-life character of Didi Storm, who haunts the book to its final pages.
