Publisher's Summary

From a master of suspense comes a chilling new novel that explores the dangers lurking closer than you think. Because even in the perfect family, you never know what is going on behind closed doors.

This is what happened...

It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect.

In the last six hours...

But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create. On the surface, Jason and Sandra Jones are like any other hardworking young couple raising a four-year-old child. But it is just under the surface that things grew murky.

Of the world as I knew it...

With the clock ticking on the life of a missing woman and the media firestorm building, Jason Jones seems more intent on destroying evidence and isolating his daughter than on searching for his beloved wife. Is the perfect husband trying to hide his guilt, or just trying to hide? And will the only witness to the crime be the killer's next victim?

A page turner

Although the story was at times a little too over the top, I was interested to the end and, overall, enjoyed this book.

Great series!

Great series by Lisa Gardner. It doesn't really matter if you read them in order which is nice too.

Very absorbing, but ultimately implausible

I enjoyed the different narrators in this book. The characters were well realized. It's very addictive to listen to, but the ending is implausible. I don't want to say more, for fear of spoiling it, but I did feel that the author was really stretching to find a surprise ending.

Good Book - Keeps Ya Hanging On!!

I really enjoyed this book as it was laid out well, lots of twists I didn't see coming, and a tricky plot that spun a good web. I would recommend this book, as I like most of Lisa Gardner's books.

Thrilling

Fantastic suspence thriller. Lisa ALWAYS delivers on the bent and twisted mysteries :) NEVER go wrong with any of her books. This story is ranked high with all her others. This one directly ties into the previous book "Say Goodbye". Her stories on the phsycological thrillers are wonderful. Her writing is unlike any other and will amaze you to the very end. Very difficult to put down. Gonna love it. Guaranteed!!!!!!
