As dusk approaches a Dublin suburb in 1984, mothers call their children home. But on this evening, three children do not return. When the police arrive, they find only one of them. He is gripping a tree trunk, wearing blood-filled sneakers and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours. Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective. When a girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox must investigate a case chillingly similar to the unsolved mystery.

I am very upset that this is the last book in the Joeseph O'Loughlin series! Michael Robotham quickly became one of my favorite authors after reading one of his novels unrelated to this series. Since then I have purchased almost every one of his books on Audible. This series is my absolute favorite! I LOVE Ruiz and Joe and they make a great team! I am sad this is the end!

SOOOO much potential with this book! The plot was really good... unlike any plot I have ever read, sadly this book fell short of the mark for me! I barely paid attention to it! The epilogue was explosive for me and I thought "this is going to be good" and then... disappointment.. it got better the further along it went, and the last few chapters made me feel that I hadn't lost out on a credit! in fact the last few chapters are the only reason why I am attempting the second book in the series! I hope it does a better job at holding my attention than the first!

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

I try not to give bad reviews, and I usually do not, but this book was VERY difficult for me to finish! I almost considered stopping because I was so utterly annoyed by how long and drawn out this book was. It didn't even peak my interest until sometime around the 40th Chapter! I guessed who it was earlier on! Was it necessary to add such a descriptive narrative to every little thing that went on in this book! I don't think I will be listening to anything else by this Author again!

Clara Lawson is torn from her life in an instant. Without warning, her home is invaded by armed men, and she finds herself separated from her beloved husband and daughters. The last thing her husband yells to her is to say nothing. In chapters that alternate between past and present, the novel slowly unpeels the layers of Clara's fractured life. We see her growing up, raised with her sisters by the stern Mama and Papa G, becoming a poised and educated young woman, falling desperately in love with the forbidden son of her adoptive parents.

It has been a long time since I can remember a book having the kind of affect that this one has. I have told every person I could (especially the ones with children) about this book and its context. After everytime I listened to this book I hugged my kids just a little bit harder! I have always had an open dialogue with my children, but this book led me to have more intense discussions with them. I have never cried so much over a book, and the realization that this happens every day is gut wrenching. If you have children or even if you don't I encourage you to listen or read this book. Be warned, it is heartbreaking from the very beginning, but it I'd worth it!

Amber Patterson is fed up. She's tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more - a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted. To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne - a socialite and philanthropist - and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale. Amber's envy could eat her alive...if she didn't have a plan.

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside - the woman who was killed. She's been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It's a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she'd broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she'd stopped.

I read a review of this book, where the person stated that it was so much better than "Behind Closed Doors". I am in total disagreement with this statement. While I found this book entertaining (as I find most audible books where the narator has an accent), I did not have the same nailbiting, gotta finish ASAP feeling that I had with Behind Closed Doors! I cannot wait for the author's next book though... I will forever be a fan!
