Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Allison Brennan weaves the intimate, unpausable story of an investigator confronting the most important - and most dangerous - mystery of her career, in Abandoned 

Investigative reporter Max Revere has cracked many cases, but the one investigation she's never attempted is the mystery from her own past. Her mother abandoned her when she was nine, sending her periodic postcards, but never returning to reclaim her daughter. Seven years after the postcards stop coming, Martha Revere is declared legally dead, with no sign of what may have happened to her. Until now.  

With a single clue - that her mother’s car disappeared 16 years ago in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay - Max drops everything to finally seek the truth. As Max investigates, and her mother's story unfolds, she realizes that Martha teamed up with a con man. They traveled the world living off Martha’s trust and money they conned from others.  

Though no one claims to know anything about Martha or her disappearance, Max suspects more than one person is lying. When she learns the FBI has an active investigation into the con man, Max knows she’s on the right path. But as Max digs into the dark secrets of this idyllic community, the only thing she might find is the same violent end as her mother.

Critic Reviews

"Boldly drawn, psychologically complex characters and a multifaceted plot distinguish this entry, which thoughtfully explores the different forms that family can take." (Publishers Weekly)

POOR STORY. WORSE NARRATOR

I just had to give up on this book early on and return it, which I seldom do. I'll admit I didn't get very far. The story was slow and sophomoric, but the narrator was simply awful!

I can’t get enough.

My only disappointment is when I finish the series. This characters become a part of you. I can’t get enough of Allison Brennan.

Great book

Really enjoyed this book. Didn’t want it to end. Characters are real and described in depth. I loved this book.
