This compelling story is not what I would normally pick up and read. But from the very first page, I was drawn in to a tale that spanned generations and it had me hooked like a kid seeing their first magic trick. It starts off on a train in the present day where Andrew, an adopted child who suspects he has a twin, receives a summons to an interview by a person he has never met before. This person may have the key to the mystery of his birth, his twin, and his past in a way that he never imagined. Ingeniously crafted, the story winds its way to its startling conclusion with all the precision of a well practiced magical act leaving the reader stunned. This is much better than the movie!
