“The Cost” is a great example of intrigue novel written by David Graham Philips with very powerful, and quite insightful plot. The main question of the novel that rises an author the price you are able to pay for something or someone. Very interesting book about the sacrifices you have to make to become great at something. Interesting characters and brilliant insights with strong voices that capture a sense of society.
