Summary

A terrifying crime reunites a mother and daughter in a novel of psychological suspense by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of Trespassing.

Three months after four-year-old Holly Gebhardt was kidnapped, she was inexplicably returned to the same park from which she’d vanished...with no memory of the ordeal. Though a local handyman was convicted, suspicion also fell on his friend - Holly’s mother, Cecily. The troubling doubts about her involvement shattered the family, forever driving a wedge between mother and daughter.

Twenty years later, another girl goes missing under eerily similar circumstances. It’s just the latest in a series of kidnappings that Detective Jason Guidry thinks Holly can help solve. Though Holly has tried to move on with her life, a young girl’s life hangs in the balance. All she has to do is try to remember....

With her memory still mostly blank, Holly is missing vital pieces of the puzzle, and she believes her mother can put them in place. In desperation and fear, Holly and her mother come together again. But in a chilling rush toward the past, Cecily still has secrets she’s yet to share with her daughter. Should she dare to breathe a word, she could lose Holly all over again.

Well done. 4.5 stars

This was just what I needed to get me out of my reading slump this month. It was involved, it was twisty, it took me the long way around and turned all my assumptions on their heads. Once I started reading it, I couldn't wait to finish. Holly was a victim of a child abduction when she was a young girl, and her abductor was caught and put away for his crimes. Or was he? She can't remember the days she was missing, but her unexplained behaviors as an adult might just point to something lying just below the surface, waiting for the right time or the right trigger to bring them back. I liked that this story had a well developed plot and several subplots that all tied together in roundabout ways. The details were rich and the characters all had something to hide. The audiobook was well done with two narrators alternating between Holly's perspective and her mother's perspective from the past. Maybe a little on the slow side but I listened at 2.3 and it was just right for me. (I usually range between 1.5-2.0.) They were able to get the voices of the different characters across really well. 4.5 stars

Worth the read

The story was twisty and suspenseful. The narration was good. I enjoyed this book very much.
