i will admit that i had no idea what to expect when starting this book. the summary was intriguing and i love the cover. so here i am.
it is unfair to label this book as young adult, this is a book that transcends age groups and would definitely be enjoyable to readers of any age. this book has action, excitement, intrigue, suspense, and danger – all without resorting to frequent profanity or sordid love affairs.
if you’re looking for a book that will take over your brain and transport you to another place – this is it. if the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe and harry potter had a baby, it could be this book.
shahabi has a very impressive self-published debut here and should definitely be proud of his work.
5 stars from this girl!

Summary from Goodreads:
1960s — March 24. Billionaire Lyndon Surway takes off in his private plane and never returns.
His will leaves the entirety of his wealth—one of the largest fortunes in history—to his “dear friend Lucian Baker.” Only there is no trace of anyone by that name. And the fortune itself is nowhere to be found.
Andrew Day knows nothing of wealth and privilege, but he won a scholarship to study at the most exclusive school in the country, in the town where the mystery, decades later, remains unsolved. There he discovers friendship and danger with the aristocratic Cameron and the beautiful Olivia. But watchful eyes follow him everywhere… Until, one night, he comes across a secret that will change his life. As he begins to unravel what really happened to the Surway fortune, the question remains: who is Lucian Baker?
