Rachel and Stephen Stark are already uneasy partners in a troubled marriage. Now they grow further apart, and Rachel must summon all her strength and courage, every ounce of rage and terror and anguish, into the desperate search for David.
Katharine Clark has written a gripping novel of a family in crisis and created a plot that twists and turns at a breathless pace until its unforgettable conclusion.
This is a very good story and well worth the credit. The plot moves along very well with plenty of action. But...I found the reading of the quotes at the beginning of each chapter very anoying. When I am into a story I do not enjoy a break to hear some quote that does not even relate to what is going on with the book.

This has a good plot but it's spoilt by the main character who has all the strength of cooked pasta... it's difficult to like this creepy Stepford wife who, upon discovering her husband is having an affair with her sister, seems to be more bothered that she hasn't done his laundry. Ugh. No wonder the rest of the characters treat her with such contempt.
