Summary

Jessica and Owen Nobles are heartbroken over the loss of their son, Jacob. Jessica has taken his death especially hard, spending the past three years sedated and under the care of a psychiatrist. Desperate to save his wife, Owen moves the couple to Florida, hoping a change in scenery will remind her how to live again.

When Jessica begins to see a small boy in the upstairs window of the abandoned home next door, she goes to investigate, only to find the house empty. Afraid that she may be seeing things, Jess does an internet search on the home’s address. What she finds is an image of the boy from the window - a boy that’s been missing more than 13 years.

Reluctant to tell her husband, Jessica sets out to find what information she can on the child’s disappearance. Yet, someone is going to great lengths to stop her. To make matters worse, bodies begin dropping around her like flies. And she's the prime suspect in the killings. If Jessica doesn’t back off now, she risks losing more than just her mind...she could very well lose her life.

Very good story!

Very good storyline. Well written and believable characters. The Emotion of the characters was felt from the get go and kept you reading to see how they would conquer life's tragedies.

Johnny Mack did a wonderful job reading this to us I have heard him on a few other audio books and enjoy him immensely.
All in all a book worth listening to.

Good Book

I thought this book was good but could use a little more excitement. It was lacking in the thriller aspect. I loved the narration. The overall story was good. I would recommend it to other listeners.

a thriller to keep you on the edge of your seat

not only was the story itself engaging but the narrator also does the voicing so well he keeps you listening too. I found myself finding all the time I could to get any more of the story in so I could find out what happened. I was obsessed. I'm normally not into thrillers but the synopsis sounded different that I wanted to give it a shot and boy was I glad I did. the author does such a good job of sucking you in via emotion and pure suspense. just as you think you have an idea who does it, you are thrown around a different path second guessing all you just thought you knew. I couldn't stop until I knew what happened.

A new genre for this author.

This haunting thriller kept me hooked from the beginning. The shocking ending took me by surprise, as I totally did not see that coming. This book is a real departure from the romance novels Ditter has written in the past. I hope to see more like this in the future.

The Boy In The Window

This was a first for me from this author and narrator. I enjoyed this book and it kept my attention the whole time. I figured out some of the mystery pretty early into the story and the rest before the reveal. Still a good listen! The narrator did a good job with the story and characters and bringing them to life. If it matters to you, this story does have a HEA.

I never figured out who done it!!

This story had me guessing the whole time. The person I thought was guilty wasn’t so I was hooked till the end. And as usual Johnny Mack did and awesome job with the narration. Can’t wait to hear more from Ditter!!

Good Book

Not 100% sure whether or not it is because I canceled my audible subscription, or if it was the recording of this book. It skipped a lot and broke up quite a bit and would randomly stop playing.

The story itself was intriguing. I thought I knew who it was, but I didn't! Such a good read, totally different than Ditter's other work! I would love to read more of this style❤

What happened to Terry?

**Spoilers**I received this book from the author and freely offer this review. This is a psychological thriller, dealing with the loss of children.
The Nobles lost their son in an accident and Jessica has been depressed, suicidal and under a doctor's care for a few years, unable to move on. Owen, hoping to get his wife back, accepts a transfer to Florida. What he didn't do (and why would he) was investigate the neighborhood where their new home is. The house next door is abandoned, but, Jessica sees a young boy in the upstairs window. After finding out that the young boy, Terry, who lived in that house disappeared 13 years ago, Jessica is compelled to do some research, and she discovers that the boy she is seeing, is the spitting image of the boy who disappeared. The more she delves, the more she's sure that she is seeing Terry, but, more than one person wants her to stop looking, including her husband. But, finding out what happened to Terry makes her feel more alive than she has in years, but, it just might just get her killed.

Intense mystery!

An story of family, love, heartbreak, mystery and learning to live again after a devastating loss. Interesting characters and an intriguing storyline. I thought the narrator did a fantastic job with this audiobook.
