Yet, it is dazzling Annie who senses that Susan will be the one who makes it out of Detroit. Together, the girls navigate the minefields of a down-market disco where they work their summer jobs. Its a world filled with pretty girls and powerful men, some of whomlike Sammy Fakhourihappen to be Iraqi Chaldeans. What happened in that summer of 1979 when Susan and Annie met? Why is Sammy looking for Susan all these years later? And why is Mrs. Ford lying?

I received this as an ARC for winning a Goodreads giveaway for my honest opinion. Thanks to Post Hill Press for the ARC.

I didn't start this book, until this morning. It is a slow build to the halfway point and then the ending is thrilling and shocking.

Susan Ford is enjoying life of the privileged until one summer morning when the FBI shows up. They ask if she knows a man named Sammy Fakhouri.
5 ⭐

Just received this in the mail today. It's one of the ARC's I won on Goodreads. I think I am going to read it, as soon as I finish Connections In Death.
