Determined to find out what happened to her father, Aimee Hart accepts a secretarial position at Stratton Industrial, the large engineering firm where she last knew her father to be. In her attempt to discover the truth, she is thrust into the company of Miles Stratton, the head of the company and a man who is trying to overcome both Post Traumatic Stress from his recent return from the war and the betrayal of the man he considered his best friend. As the two work together to discover the truth of what happened to Aimee’s father and who is trying to destroy Stratton Industries.
Fast paced with enough mystery to keep you up until the end, the mysteries inside Stratton Industries are many and keep the story moving along. Miles Stratton is mystery in himself as is what is going on with the company and who Miles can trust within his own company. I had my doubts about a few people throughout the book. Because the majority of the book takes place over a one-night time span, there it moves along nicely. There were a couple of things brought up in the book that I would have liked to see explored a little more, but it doesn’t take away from the story. In fact, it made me keep thinking about what those things meant.
