Jason Mondy’s world is unraveling.

He’s frustrated with his job. 
And his most recent girlfriend has just walked out on him.
Even a simple trip home to find some rest leads his adoptive mother to 
share a stunning secret she’s kept for over twenty-six years . . .

Jason has a brother he doesn’t remember existed.

Desperate and uncertain, Jason can only watch as 
one by one the pieces of his life fall like dominoes. 
The more he uncovers, the more everything he thought he knew 
about himself and his past begins to turn to ash.

His truth isn’t true at all . . .
