I was extremely intrigued. It took me longer than I like to get into it, but when I did, I REALLY REALLY did! Thank you!

The first night Elizabeth was back in Mississippi in her grandmother's house , house sitting while her grandmother was on a cruise, the nightmare's returned. The reoccuring dream always produced recurring physical reactions: her muscles ached as she stood, legs like rubber and hands shaking with unsteady nerves a rapid heartbeat, and nausea. Elizabeth used to spend every summer with her grandmother and grandfather. Her first summer here she was six and met Loralei who was barely five and they had been like sisters from that moment on. Her life had changed that day in the park until seven years ago when it changed again just because  she didn’t come to visit over the summer. To Elizabeth the closest thing she had to a sister disappeared and worse they had fought terribly over Loralei brother Jeremiah  only weeks before Loralei vanished. Elizabeth couldn’t know that was the last time they would speak. When did she start having that nightmare again? It had been over a year since the last time. But this was her first visit to Mississippi since Loralei had went missing. She still felt guilty for not visiting that summer, as if she could have prevented what had happened to Loralei. Nightmares where one thing but hallucinations were a whole different matter. The night loralei went missing Elizabeth swore she saw a vision of Loralei in her bedroom in Denver Colorado. A vision of a beaten and bloody Loralei who was in Cyprus hundreds of miles away. She was so sure her mother called Lorelai's house to find out Loralei was in fact missing. Loralei was frantically reaching out. Elizabeth than passed out. It was the instant she had that vision that changed her life. No physical trace was ever found of Loralei. Than the nightmares had started regularly over the last seven years. Nut the visions, left her doubting herself. Elizabeth told nobody about her visions. Than someone knocked at the door at four in the morning. The Elizabeth saw Loralei forever sixteen motioning with a degree of urgency to answer the door. When she did a woman named  Madame Antionette of Shreveport, Louisiana she had been driving all night to see her. Than Madame Antionette  said to speak to Elizabeth about Loralei and added she had to do it when it was least likely she’d be seen. The General answered his phone and said she hadn’t even been in town for twelve hours and already she was having visitors in the middle of the night? He said he didn’t like that, to find out  exactly who the woman was. He wanted to know exactly why she had visited. NOW!!! But unfocused anger was only good if spurred action blend rage had to be harnessed and directed as fuel. His mentor and benefactor Elijah Whitshire had taught the General that lesson among so many others. The general of the Society Of reformed America sat at his desk. The General had always suspected something had been passed to Elizabeth. He would finally find out how much Elizabeth knew. If there was anything that could incriminate The Society it would be destroyed and anybody who knew about it would simply disappear , become gator bait. He was glad he had Society member in the FBI. The minute Noah contacted the Bureau he was as good as dead. What they hadn’t planned on he had somehow passed some documents of some sort to Loralei. Never finding the documents was a nagging loose end that made the general uneasy, which made him mad. It seemed Elizabeth knew about the documents Noah had passed to Loralei. They finally had members in all the power positions within the Federal Government : the military branches, FBI, CIA, NSa, banking and finance,  media, and all major cities police forces as well as all major city governments. He had built the secret society turned over to him by Elijah into a bonafide clandestine organization ready to shape the country to its prior glory. In a very short time nobody could stop The Society. 
This book was an excellent read. I didn’t want to put it down and read late into the night and stated right back up the next day. At first I thought oh no all these chapters but it wasn’t hard at all to go through them just took a little more time than usual. I loved the authors descriptive talent for ex describing the general and his coldness and cruelty. I could picture him in my mind. I didn’t like the racism in this book. Acting like Loralei was less than human like perhaps a dog or something but I did understand why it was written that way. I loved the suspense, intrigue and danger in this book. This had my attention from the beginning until the end. This was realistic and about some of today's issues. I loved that Loralei was determined to help Elizabeth even after she had passed away. I also loved the plot and pace. I loved the characters and the twists and turns in this book and I highly recommend it.

I haven’t read a book by this author until now. I hope to read more after reading this one. Starting out a little slow, this book doesn’t take long to really get going. The author tells the story from multiple points of view, but I wasn’t confused because the character whose turn it is, is listed at the beginning of the chapter. While this book has a little more description than I like, the description did do a great job of painting a web of deception in so many places, you can’t help but feel paranoid. This book was a wonderful mystery from start to finish, and the end was the piece de resistance. I hope to see more books, and I do really recommend this book. I was provided a copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

Set in the South, this thriller explores a world of mystery, intrigue, danger and secret societies that builds a very plausible story in our current political climate. Elizabeth can't let go of the disappearance of her best friend from childhood, but her amateur investigations lead her into more mystery and danger than she could ever have imagined. This is a well-written thriller with nicely developed characters. As the first one in the series, Elizabeth develops significantly throughout the novel and leaves us wanting to know her next steps and adventures, without leaving anything to do with this particular story unresolved. While told completely in third person, the perspective shifts between characters allowing readers to develop the best possible understanding of the mystery unfolding. A well-crafted adventure that will leave you looking forward to Elizabeth's next journey!

This book grabbed me from the first chapter. A well-written thriller with a scenario easy to believe in this political climate. The characters were interesting and I'm hoping for more from this author. I would definitely recommend this book I received an e-book from NetGalley in return for an unbiased review.

Conspiracy, corruption, secret society and a woman with a gift. Elizabeth has a special gift but she thinks she’s going crazy. When a woman shows up in the middle of the night to warn her that she is in danger. The General is the head of a group who wants to take over the United States by infiltrating the government and other  agencies. The scary thing about it is this could be happening in real life. There are things going on that are in the headlines right now. Racism and prejudice play a large part in this book. Overall this is a great thriller.
