What would you do if you were doing a forensic reconstruction and the face that came up Jessica was adopted when she was a child and is now an adult who never knew who her biological parents. She finds she has a twin sister who was murdered. Trying too find the killers, she puts herself in danger. The killers are looking for her and they have found her. What now. Will she get away or will she die like her sister? This book was well written with a lot of suspense and mystery. It does end in a cliff hanger. Awaiting the next book. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation

I didn't think I was going to like it based on the first chapter but boy the rest of the book was intense. I really enjoyed reading this book, The only complaint that I have is that the author ended it with Jessica unknowingly in danger & no clues as to what happens next.! Does Jessica live, are the killers caught, do they kill Jessica? So many questions... I can't wait to read the next book which hopefully answer these questions. #TheReconstruction #NetGalley

Jessica Sanford, the protagonist, is an adopted Asian woman who does facial reconstruction and works with law enforcement. During a reconstruction assignment for an apparent homicide victim, she suspects the victim is her unknown twin sister. The story narrates her search to identify the victim and to determine if she is related. Mr. Wiegers does a good job with the main character's development and the book is an easy read. However, there is a lack of excitement and Jessica's personal and professional relationships are underdeveloped. All in all, for his first attempt at fiction, I think Mr. Wiegers did a good job.
