It has been sitting on this BC'er's list for far too long so I decided they should get the chance to read it! I hope it lives up to your expectations! :D
ETA 1/31/18: I had to skip a couple pages that described the brutal killing of a little dog. :-( . It wasn't gratuitous violence; it illustrated just how evil one of the characters is.
New England, 1887. The millionaire William Knight is brutally murdered and the only witness is his grandchild, Richard, who himself disappears, and is presumed dead. Eighteen years later, Richard is "recognized" in Switzerland in the person of Alexander von Reisden, and William Knight's only son, Gilbert, is convinced that this man is the long lost child. Reisden, himself, has no memory of any childhood, and his own growing obsession with finding the real Richard is leading him closer to a shattering truth. And to a killer, still at large....
