Paige has run away and Simon, dad, is looking for her. Paige had been raped, but said she was o.k. At college she checked at DNA site and found out that Aaron was her half-brother. He was addicted to drugs and tried to control Paige. He abused her and then was found dead. She said she killed Aaron Corval, but in reality mom, Ingrid did. Ingrid did not know she killed her son. She just killed him because he abused Ingrid. That would be Simon and Paige's secret forever once all this mess is settled down. When she was 17 she joined a cult, got pregnant, but was told the baby was stillborn. There was an adoption ring, which Alison Mayflower was in charge of selling these boys for adoption. From these DNA sites these boys found out who their half brothers were. That's where DeeDee and Ash come in. She wants to rule The Truth, this cult group, since the head honcho is dying and his sons will be succeeding him. Well, DeeDee is killing them all so she can take over. Kevin Gano, Damien Gorse, Henry Thorpe and Aaron Corval are all the boys she's killed. The book leads you to think that Aaron was also killed by DeeDee, but not so. Elena, a detective, is hired to check on missing Henry Thorpe. That's when she finds out too much and is killed by DeeDee/Ash. Ingrid is shot by Luther when they were looking for Paige. He claimed self defense because he saw Ingrid shoot Aaron, but Simon didn't know any of this. Cornelius, the owner of the apartments, Aaron and Paige lived in, saved Ingrid by shooting Luther. Mother Adiona saves Simon when they encounter Ash and DeeDee by pushing Ash down from the third floor of the apartment. Dee Dee dies by falling as well (?). Her skull is cracked. Mother Adiona wants her son to live - the next man to be killed, Nathan Brannon from Florida.
