Growing up Anastasia and her
sister Keira moved from country to country with their parents as they were world-renowned engineers and co-owned a company
called Dresden. They became part of a club known as Dresden Kids which are
nomadic children whose parents move around every few months, and if they are lucky,
then they can live in a place longer than six months. Boston was supposed to be
their last stop, and their new home as
Keira had just started medical school in Boston and the company's base was in
Boston. That is until Anastasia's parents inform her they are off to
Canada. Her parents leave and then Keira is
awoken with the tragic news that their parents have been killed by a drunk driver.
Keira becomes Anastasia's guardian, and
for the next year they struggle, but they
make do with what they have. That is until Keira has a Mother's Day Eve party
with her nursing friends and the next morning their house is a crime scene.
Keira is missing, and the bathtub is
overflowing with blood and a lot of it.
Anastasia, the only one who believes her sister is still alive will start an
international mission along with her new best friend Marcus - a fellow Dresden
kid starting off in Italy. What will Anastasiareceive though is more questions as she
discovers her parents weren't what they seem and that Keira's disappearance
could be connected to their deaths? Proof of Lies was a fast-paced novel
filled with lots of twists, and I loved
the direction that the book took with uncovering Anastasia's parent's company. The only thing I wish was
that we might have had a bit more interaction with Marcus and his family and
how they are connected, though I did read at the end that they will be featured in the next book. Proof of
Lies left me with lots of unanswered questions,
so I am hoping that the next book will give readers like me a clearer view of
what is happening and of the past and what has led to the current events.
