, his new thriller “moves forward determinedly and at a steady pace, revealing unique characters who are faced with the same situation in parallel universes. The twists and surprises in the plot come thick and fast in a storyline where nothing is what it seems, and where the feelings of love and desperation intertwine, creating a spider web loaded with emotions.”

Deciphering this sequence will be the only way to save the child.
