Real estate mogul Sean Jackson is throwing himself a splashy 50th birthday party, but trouble starts almost immediately: His ex-wife has sent his teenage daughters to the party without telling him; his current wife has fired the nanny; and he's finding it difficult to sneak away to his mistress. Then something truly terrible happens: one of his three-year-old twins goes missing. No trace of her is ever found. The attendees of the party, nicknamed the Jackson Associates by the press, become infamous overnight.

Any additional comments?
First I wasn't familiar with the narrator Beverley A. Crick, she did an outstanding job with the various characters' voices and I will definitely listen to her again. The book overall kept me interested although I thought some of the characters could have been fleshed out a little more. I went into the listen thinking I knew what to expect, i.e. your typical "missing child" mystery ...boy was I wrong, there was lot more going on here and that made the listen interesting. With lots of twists and turns right up to the end, I gave it 4 stars and will look for more from this author.
