A cartoonist follows his heart into an inescapable web of secrecy and deceit
Max Fischer is at the Los Angeles County Museum when he sees the woman and child who will change his life. They are Lincoln and Lily Aaron, a precocious ten-year-old and his quick-witted mother, and before Max realizes it, he’s inviting them to lunch. It seems like an innocent chance encounter, but in the years to come Max will wonder if he hadn’t been doomed from the start. He falls quickly for the beautiful, opinionated woman, and is about to propose marriage when he learns that Lily is harboring a dark secret—one that will change Max’s life forever. This ebook contains an all-new introduction by Jonathan Carroll, as well as an exclusive illustrated biography of the author including rare images from his personal collection.
