Can’t Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. It’s a weekly meme to spotlight new releases.
A young, street-savvy runaway looking for a place to call home realized he might have conned his way into the wrong family in this fast-paced and thrilling novel from award-winning author Cristin Terrill.
When ten-year-old Daniel Tate went missing from one of California’s most elite communities, he left no trace. He simply vanished.Six years later, when he resurfaces on a snowy street in Vancouver, he’s no longer the same boy. His sandy hair is darker, the freckles are gone, and he’s initially too traumatized to speak, but he’s alive. His overjoyed family brings him home to a world of luxury and comfort he can barely remember. In time, they assure him, he’ll recover his memories; all that matters now is they’re together again.It’s perfect. A miracle. Except for one thing.
He isn’t Daniel Tate.
He’s a petty con artist who accidentally stumbled into the scam of a lifetime, and he soon learns he’s not the only one in the Tate household with something to hide. The family has as many secrets as they have millions in the bank, and one of them might be ready to kill to keep the worst one buried.
Here Lies Daniel Tate, by Cristin Terrill, is being released on June 6th, 2017. So technically, it will be published the day this post goes live. BUT because I’m writing this a few days early, I’m still waiting for it. Boom, totally counts.
I am really intrigued by unsolved mysteries. There are actually a couple cases similar to this, with a boy who has gone missing and then returns, only it isn’t the actual boy. Two of the most famous ones are Bobby Dunbar, and Walter Collins. A movie was actually made about Walter Collins’ mother, called The Changeling, starring Angelina Jolie. It was an interesting movie, and if you are an unsolved mystery junky like myself, I definitely recommend watching it.
