When 13 year old Nicholas Barclay disappeared from his Texas home in 1994, three years on only his family still held out hope for his return. Their joy was unbounded when they received a crackly call from Spanish police, informing them that their son had been found. With tales of abduction and abuse to account for his missing time, Nicholas was restored to his family, even returning to the local school. But all was not as it seemed; Nicholas looked and sounded decidedly different. And stranger still – his family seemed not to questions these glaring inconsistencies. It is only when an investigator starts digging that this astounding true story takes an even more extraordinary turn.
