    But there are girls who vanish and never come back, girls whose clean white bones are dug up years later in vacant lots and distant forests. Carlotta Carlyle's latest case, investigating the disappearance of her adopted little sister Paolina, could change her life forever.

    Overall

    I'm a long time fan of the Carlotta Carlyle series and love her wit and spunk. This was a big disapointment, due primarily to the narrator. Carlotta has a lot of spanish speaking people in her life, but she herself is not hispanic. The reader was also not a part of the story, she was merely a reader. The previous Carlotta stories I have listened to were read by C.J. Critt, who became Carlotta. I would not listen to another book read by this narrator!

    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    Engaging, spellbinding, exciting, endearing. I didn't want to turn it off. I loved the fact that all the main characters were damaged in some way, not the perfection you often find in movies. It didn't take long before I felt as though I knew them and cared what happened to them.
