In this pivotal book in the Sammy Keyes series, Sammy tackles the persistent mysteries of her own life.

During one crazy weekend in Las Vegas, with the help of an army of Elvis impersonators, Sammy finally gets some answers. But knowledge comes at a cost—and it's a price she never meant to pay. . . .
