This is the first book I’ve read in the Amory Ames series. But while part of a series, you can definitely read this book as a stand-alone. I do think it would help the reader to have some background about the Milo and Amory. There are twists and turns that makes for a good mystery. And I love it when a book allows you to be surprised. A great summer read and one that enjoyed during a time when we were having to stay at home because of the coronavirus. I may go back and read the previous books in the series.
