It begins with an abduction. The routine of a family shopping trip is shattered when Michelle Spivey is snatched as she leaves the mall with her young daughter. The police search for her, her partner pleads for her release, but in the end...they find nothing. It’s as if she disappeared into thin air. A month later, on a sleepy Sunday afternoon, medical examiner Sara Linton is at lunch with her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. But the serenity of the summer’s day is broken by the wail of sirens.

Good story, intriguing, however I got a bit frustrated in the first part as the story was being told and retold from different perspectives, sometimes with not a lot of new information. Had it been a kindle book I would have skip read a lot. Second two (?) parts weren't like that though. I felt the story was good, I was kept guessing to a certain extent, but I felt it all came to a climax quite quickly, could say it was rushed, but probably more that she didn't want to drag it out. Overall I enjoyed it, how she does more of the Will Trent series.
