Deborah Jenkins pulls her coat around her as she sets out on her short walk home in the pouring rain. But she never makes it home that night. And she is never seen again.

Four years later, an abandoned baby girl is found wrapped in dirty rags on a doorstep. An anonymous phone call urges the police to run a DNA test on the baby. But nobody is prepared for the results. The newborn belongs to Deborah. She’s still alive.

It was not "gripping" and it certainly did not have any twist. I listened up to the very last second hoping that there would be something to justify the time I spent listening to this but alas, still nothing happened. You know pretty much everything that happened right away so it's rather infuriating to have to listen to how constantly sick and nauseous the main character is while the detectives slowly (very slowly) discover things you already know. My reaction after finishing was "that was it?" It wasn't the worst book I've ever listened to but I wish I had used my time and money on something different.
