Jacey Grayson assumed that her life would be pretty close to perfect - she fell in love with and married John Trent, a handsome man who doted over her at first, buying her beautiful jewelry, fine clothes, and an expensive home. But it wasn't long into their marriage before she discovered his abusive nature. She stuck it our for eight agonizing years, but when it got to a dangerous point, she divorced him and fled with their son, Blaze.
But when the FBI catches up to her and discloses even more disturbing information about John, Jacey realizes that if the FBI can find her, then so can her ex-husband. To protect herself and Blaze, her best friend comes up with a plan that'll hide their true identities, hopefully long enough to start a new life far away in a small, Mormon, farming community in Utah.
It tears Jacey apart to be dishonest to the family that takes her and Blaze in and treats them like their own, but she must continue to live the lie to protect her and Blaze from her angry, abusive ex-husband and the secret life he leads.
Mandi Slack has masterfully created each one of her character's personalities and has woven an intriguing story full of suspense. She has captured John Trent's character in such a way, that as a reader, you too will fear him, and you'll be rooting for Jacey, hoping that she can stay one step ahead.
Mandi Tucker Slack's The Alias is a 'must read' and a novel that will keep you captivated to the very end!
