This is my family: Vanished without a trace....
Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life.
This is what I know: Pain has a flavor....
When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted, with only a pile of their cell phones and electronic devices remaining. No witnesses, no ransom demands, no motive. Just a perfect little family, gone.
This is what I fear: The worst is yet to come....
Tessa knows better than anyone that flawless fronts can hide the darkest secrets. Now she must race against the clock to uncover the Denbes’ innermost dealings, a complex tangle of friendships and betrayal, big business and small sacrifices. Who would want to kidnap such a perfect little family? And how far would such a person be willing to go?
This is the truth: Love, safety, family . . . it’s all touch and go.

A nice paced book, not real fast but just fast enough to say one more chapter and then one more and then one more..............
All the main characters were nicely done. I was not disappointed
It didn't make me laugh or cry, it made me want to root for the family involved.
I enjoyed listening to this book from begining to end.
I need a story to grab me in the first few minutes and this did!!
The character voices were all well done.
It's one I've had a hard time putting down.
Looking forward to exploring more titles by this author.
Elisabeth Rodgers is an AWESOME narrator!!
that Mick Got what was Coming to him!! And that Libby & Ashland were ok.
Not that I can remember....But she gave an excellent performance in this book!!
I cried during Some parts. Don't want to give anything away So won't say which parts.
LOVED this Book! the Storyline is Awesome! you can't put it down! keeps you on the edge of your Seat!!
All? I would have to say top 50%.
Yes!! For the past two days, I had an ear bud in one ear.
This was the first book I listened to by Lisa Gardner. I now have several in my "wish list".
The story was slow and bulky and at times had spurts of energy. Not typical of the authors writings.
Congratulations, you did a great job on this story and kept my interest in the characters. By the way loved the end!
The story is very well written as it offers a glimpse into the secrets that are kept within a family and sometimes from ourselves. This is fast-paced thriller with several characters but even with the constantly moving story line it is easy to keep everyone straight (as far as who is who) and leaves you REALLY wanting to know what can happen next!
Sometimes characters from previous novels confuse or even bore a reader/listener but this was so well written that it can be read by someone who has never heard of Lisa Gardner (are there any left out there?) so I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fast and fabulous read!
Also, I must add that this narrator is extremely talented and I hope she is used for further work- previous LG books weren't quite as enjoyable in audio format due to the narration. Elisabeth Rodgers even makes a fine story even better! Enjoy!
Worth The Credit.
This is a fantastic story. The narrator was great--easy to follow and nice tone and inflection for each character. I am a huge mystery fan, and I'm very, very good at figuring out the end of a story. I deducted one star because I did end up guessing the "mastermind" about two-thirds into the story. Don't let this dishearten you. This novel is well worth finishing. In fact, I'll probably listen to it again. Very much worth my credit.
The story was great... I struggled to enjoy it as much because of the accents that the performer chose to use.
Tessa - Strong supunky lady who used her heart as well as her head to guide her.
Only if she doesn't massacre the accents that she attempts to do.
As a New Englander I can be pretty particular about the accents that actors/actresses try to use... (Ben Affleck, a former Boston native, admitted to screwing it up in the movie "The Town"), but this was awful!!!!
