This was an unsettling book. I already knew the basic storyline from hearing Axton Betz-Hamilton on the Criminal podcast (the episode is called “The Money Tree” if you‘re interested), but wow. There was so much more going on with her family than the podcast went into. Her mom was a messed up person, there‘s just no way around that. I admire Axton for turning her family‘s misfortune into a successful career. Definitely recommended.

This is a truly disturbing story about identity theft. More so, it is a story about mental illness. I read it in one sitting. It was a well-written, fast read that kept you engaged. I would have liked to know more about the pathology behind what motivates a person to do this to another person. I recommend it to true crime readers.

Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC

A story of stolen identities, the unrelenting love of a daughter, and a family broken by betrayal. It's hard not to relate to the feelings of the daughter, Axton, before and after the death of her mother. Enjoyed this!
4.0 /5.0

This book was fascinating. The author and her family were the victims of identity theft during her childhood and she made it the focus of her life as a researcher and academic. She conveys the pain that this crime causes as well as its impact on a person‘s financial life. I knew going in who the perpetrator was bc the author was featured on the Criminal podcast. If you don‘t know, read it without finding out! #NFNov

I was just going to read a few pages of this but now I have to finish it! I know the secret in the book bc it was the subject of an episode of the Criminal podcast, but it is still a compelling read. #NFNov

Christine I‘ve been wondering about this one bc of Criminal! 2mo
MallenNC @Christine It is really good so far. There would be a lot of suspense if I hadn‘t heard Criminal 2mo

Compulsively readable. I devoured this in two days. Short chapters and lots of cliff hangers. Worth a try.
