Andres suspects his wife has left him—again. Then he learns that the unthinkable has happened: she’s been kidnapped. Too much time and too many secrets have come between Andres and Marabela, but now that she’s gone, he’ll do anything to get her back. Or will he?

As Marabela slips farther away, Andres must decide whether they still have something worth fighting for, and exactly what he’ll give up to bring her home. And unfortunately, the decision isn’t entirely up to him, or up to the private mediator who moves into the family home to negotiate with the terrorists holding Marabela. Andres struggles to maintain the illusion of control while simultaneously scrambling to collect his wife’s ransom, tending to the needs of his two young children, and reconnecting with an old friend who may hold the key to his past and his wife’s future.

Set in Lima, Peru, in a time of civil and political unrest, this evocative page-turner is a perfect marriage of domestic drama and suspense.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sylvester debuts with a page-turning novel that strikes a balance between austere domesticity and suspenseful, life-altering, trauma…Inspired by her grandfather’s kidnapping, Sylvester causes readers to consider how trauma has the power to strengthen individuals, mend the past, and uncover our deepest secrets and most arduous truths.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Sylvester portrays the pain of survival and recovery. The writing is clear, exact, and powerful, maintaining subtlety in spite of its dramatic subject matter, and the ending is smart and unexpected.”

    Booklist

  • “Sylvester is a fine writer with a knack for crafting situations that externalize the characters’ internal struggles…A smart take on a familiar genre.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Peter Berkot’s deliberate and measured cadence paints Andres as a consistent man. The listener is sympathetic to his confusion about the way life has treated him. Berkot’s narration is delivered with precise enunciation and an unwavering tone…The youngest characters, the children of Andres, and the missing woman, are performed with believable innocence and youthfulness. A steady pace unravels this winding tale.”
