From Wendy Corsi Staub, the New York Times best-selling author of Nightwatcher and Shadowkiller, comes a gripping work of suspense....
For years, Rory Connelly has been haunted by the memory of her sister, Carleen, who vanished from her bed one night and was never seen again. When Rory returns home to care for her ailing mother and teenage sister, she discovers a family that has never recovered from the tragic events of so long ago.
That summer, the quiet little town of Lake Charlotte was torn apart when four teenage girls vanished - a mystery that still puzzles its residents. Now, a decade later, on the anniversary of the first disappearance, another girl goes missing, and the community is consumed with fear.
Rory is forced to relive her worst nightmare...only this time, her own life is at stake.

I will say that I never had a clue as to who the kidnapper was until it was revealed, but I was never really at the edge of my seat. I did not love it and I did not hate it. The narrator did a good job with most the the characters, but some were very valley girlish and annoying. This was my first book by this author, and I liked it well enough to try another.
