What do you know about someone? Someone close. A friend. A loved one. You know only what they want you to know.

Nate Selegman's friend, Wilson Montgomery, a.k.a., Turtle, was a piece of work. He was a lying, conniving, self-serving jerk. And someone murdered him. And enjoyed doing it. The cops have no leads and no suspects. Nate decides to find out what happened to his old friend. The more he discovers the less he knows. One thing becomes clear. The Turtle he thought he knew was someone else.

The Turtle he uncovers plunges him into a world of crime, double-dealing, blackmail, and murder. Trust is expensive, and his life, it turns out, is cheap.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh in several places, raised my eyebrows in others and I didn't cry but, I was sad when the cat bought-it : (
