Publisher's summary

Lisa Kallisto is the not-so-perfect model of the modern woman. During an impossibly hectic week, Lisa takes her eye off the ball for a moment and her world descends into a living nightmare. Not only is her best friend's thirteen-year-old daughter missing, but it's Lisa's fault. To make matters worse, Lucinda is the second teenage girl to disappear within the past two weeks. The first one turned up stripped bare and abandoned on the main street after a horrible ordeal. Wracked with guilt over her mistake, and after having been publicly blamed by Lucinda's family, Lisa sets out to right the wrong. As she begins digging under the surface, Lisa learns that everything is not quite what it first appears to be.

Excellent and original with fantastic narration!!

This is my first book by this author, and I've heard it is different from her norm. Although some of the subject matter is hard to hear, the book is so good and so well done, and the narrator is brilliant.
I'm going to listen to one of her others next, and hope it's as good. I highly recommend this one!

Really Really Good

This author didn't over do it by overwriting. This book was just right. Narration could not be better. This is in the category of psychological suspense, my favorite. I highly recommend.
