Recently, Ridley Jones stepped off a street corner and into an abyss of violence, deception, and fear. She is being a lot more careful about where she steps and trying to get on with her life when another seemingly mundane act- picking up a few envelopes of prints at a photo lab- puts Ridley at the nexus of a global network of crime. A shadowy figure of a man appears in almost every picture she's taken in the last year, lurking just far enough away to make identification impossible. Everyone from the federal government to the criminal underworld wants to know who the man is- and where he is- and some people are willing to kill to find out.
Now the FBI is at her door, some serious bad guys are following her every move, and the family she once loved and relied on is more distant than ever. Ridley has never felt so confused or alone in her life. Everyone she loves has turned out to be a stranger- she even feels like a stranger to herself. Is she a product of nature or nurture?
At once hunting down a ghost and running for her life, Ridley doesn't know if she ever had the power to shape her own destiny or if love exists anywhere beyond her imagination. The only thing Ridley knows for sure is that she has to get to the truth about herself and her past if she's ever going to find her way home.
Charged with relentless intensity and kinetic action, playing out with unnerving suspense on the streets of New York and London, and seen through the terrified but determined eyes of a young woman whose body and heart are pushed to the point of shattering, Sliver of Truth is another triumph from the "New York Times" bestselling author of Beautiful Lies.

Ridley Rides Again!

Written by Geralyn Ruane on May 18th, 2008

  • Book Rating: 5/5

What a book! This story is darker, deeper, more complex and more touching than its prequel, Beautiful Lies, which I also loved! The story picks up the with heroine Ridley about a year after Beautiful Lies, as she still tries to piece together who she is, where she belongs, and how she and Jake fit together. Ridley Jones is a compelling, down-right likable combination of grit, common sense, vulnerability and sass. Her new adventure keeps you guessing as it evolves into an engaging, provoking and satisfying tale. Though the story is primarily a thriller, both fast-paced and psychologically mesmerizing,I would be remiss without mentioning the skill with which Unger creates her intense, charged, and emotionally invested tender moments and love scenes. At the end of this book, threads still dangle that have not been sewn up. I hope to see Ridley again!

This is the second book in the series and Jenna Lumia does another great job narrating this book. I love the characters and will miss them. I hope this turns into movie because it is so entertaining!
