Prologue

The Collins family had it all. Henry Collins had a very successful architecture and real estate business, a beautiful mansion he inherited from his father, a wonderful wife named Madeline, and three amazing children. The twins were the oldest, Crystal being born an hour before Xavier, and their younger brother Adrian.

The Collins family had fame, wealth, a functional family, and all the love and support one could ask for. They had everything to gain, but also everything to lose.

Now, with Crystal's husband Gabriel running for mayor, Xavier and his husband James trying to adopt a child from China, and Adrian trying to stay off drugs as he was raising his 8-year-old little girl Ava, it wasn't a good time for the police to investigate them for murders that happened when the twins were only 18.

It wasn't a good time for Crystal's various affairs to come to light, or for Gabriel to have an accident because of drunk driving.

It wasn't a good time for Madeline to have a stroke, or for Henry to decide to sell his incredibly successful company.

It isn't a good time for a strange woman named Clara Chavez to claim she is Henry's daughter.

The seemingly perfect All-American family is falling apart, and everybody's watching.

Tina Weatherford: Good book. A bit slow paced but keeps you hooked.

Samantha: This book is amazing though I would have been happier if it wasn't so short and get more drama from Luke n his twin. Also see how their blend over as years go by with more fiction. It a very NYC mafia short story that lives u with a lot of unanswered questions.
