Fifty-year-old Marcy Taggart’s husband has left her for another woman. Devastating as that may be for some, it hardly compares to the death of her twenty-one-year-old daughter, Devon, in a canoeing accident. Her body was never found in the icy waters of Georgian Bay, and as a result Marcy has never fully accepted her death. Two years have passed, and she continues to see the young woman’s face in crowds and has even stopped strangers on the street, certain she has finally discovered her long lost daughter.
Now, in Ireland, on what was originally intended to be a celebration of her twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Marcy yet again thinks she sees her daughter, casually strolling past her on the sidewalk. So begins Marcy’s desperate search to find Devon, to find herself, and to find the disturbing truth about her daughter that might, in the end, be her only salvation.
Now You See Her vividly displays Fielding’s rare talent for creating the kind of tension, suspense, and compelling female heroines listeners crave. Riveting from start to finish, it’s one fans won’t want to miss.

I don't know if this book is as bad as it seemed or if it's the narrator's voice that makes it unbearable! At first I couldn't believe how irritating her voice was...I thought maybe the batteries on my speakers needing changing...:-) As for the story, not up to the other Fielding novels I've read. I'm glad this wasn't my first of hers or I wouldn't listen to anything else. For sure, I won't be buying any more with this narrator...OMG...very annoying voice...I don't understand how she got the job!
I have not written a review before but this book was so badly narrated and obsessively repetitive that I had to express my disgust. The narrator's voice quavers and cracks through the entire book and gives the impression that everyone in the story is on the verge of tears. The main character goes over and over and over and over her mental obsessions until I wanted to scream. I had paid for the book so I stuck it out but will not buy another one from this author.
