Publisher's Summary

When novelist Celia Hagen steps away from her train compartment, her seven-year-old adopted son, Benny, vanishes. Police search the train and Saint-Corbenay, the village in the South of France that mother and son were passing through. But there is no sign of Benny. After days of waiting at home for news, a ransom call, something, Celia returns to Saint-Corbenay against the advice of everyone, including her beloved, Benicio.

The little town is picturesque, but disturbing rumors abound. As dark secrets emerge, it seems that no one - not even Benicio or the brooding detective leading the case - is above suspicion. Celia thought she had seen it all, but nothing could prepare her for where her search will lead.

In the follow-up to Audrey Braun’s best-selling debut, A Small Fortune, Celia discovers just how quickly everything she loves can spiral toward a life - and death - that no one could have seen coming.

    "Prequel? Sequel? The Plot Needed More"

    I slowly, ever so slowly, became engaged with this story, but found it lacking fundamental elements of a good mystery. For a plethora of reasons, I felt I had begun reading a novel in the middle of a series and desperately needed the backstory. The author made attempts at providing one, but somehow, it seemed a bit contrived and shallow.

    Still, I found the premise of the story and the twisted, turning familial crises interesting enough to keep me with it to the end. The "mystery" is a good one, is was just that the story supporting the mystery needed bolstering.

    Set in Europe, the background of Zurich and elsewhere made for an interesting locale for the events surrounding the missing boy.

    Can't say I wasted my time or money, but this was not the best I've read recently by far.
