Their search for answers takes them on an emotional journey, placing them in the path of murder and revenge. At once a moving story of redemption and a heart-stopping work of suspense, Strange but True brings to life a cast of characters that no reader will soon forget.This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.
