By: Tolman Farrah Geffs

GENRES: Romance, Mystery, Suspense, Thriller
KINDLE: $2.99  PAPERBACK: $17.95

DESCRIPTION: Alex, a college student in California with a secret to reveal, brings together Dolph Sanderson and Cynthia Applegate for the first time since their brief encounter twenty-one years ago, so he can deliver it face-to-face. He discovers that coincidentally, Dolph also has a secret to reveal. 

The deception that led Dolph down a path culminating in the darkest recesses of the human heart became a threat to those whom he loves. In the tumult that unfolds, he finds what he had not been pursuing—the love of the woman he had never forgotten. 

Dolph had played a key role in uncovering a child porn operation. A most unusual couple, serving as Dolph’s security team, identify disgraced Detective Sargeant Timothy O’Haleran, a good man seething with suppressed rage, as one of the porn ring’s victims. Together they uncover clues leading to Arthur, a wealthy and powerful society patron of the arts, as the man behind the pedophiles and voyeurs that had destroyed Timothy’s life. Tim had come to believe that he was too damaged for human relationships, and the act of eliminating the monster who had orchestrated the ruin of so many young lives, finally puts the horrors of his childhood behind him. His capacity to feel some pity for this immensely wealthy but pitiful degenerate restores his humanity; Timothy finally feels like a member of the human race.

Unfortunately, the threat to Dolph and those whom he loves is still very real, as there is yet another individual involved who will not hesitate to kill to shield his identity. 

Fate never sleeps as lives that are lost are found again in this romantic thriller about the good that can come from the darkest of deeds.


Inception, A Search For Redemption
Rating: 4.0
-Spoiler Free-
There is a lot going on in this novel. A lot of characters, a lot of subtext, a lot of story lines... In short, it's a tangled mess that's brilliantly unraveled layer after layer by the author of this romantic thriller. This story by Tolman Farrah Geffs will keep readers at the edge of their seats from beginning to end. I liked how the romance was twisted into this story. There was so much dark, depressing context weighing down the pages, it was really nice to give Dolph/the readers something to ease the hurt.
This book is a crime/suspense/thriller/romance novel that does a good job unraveling it's mysteries. The reason I took off a star was because I did find parts of it a little frustrating since there was so much going on. I suppose it's safe to say this is definitely an intelligent read. If you're looking for a mind teaser, this is it! I will warn you, however, there are a lot of dark elements in this novel that aren't for everyone. (Namely, molestation/pedophilia.)
Doesn't bother you/it'll only make you more invested in the outcome? Great! I recommend this!
