Max vanished into thin air while in the care of his teenage sister, Melanie. Six months later, the family is a shadow of its former self: Melanie blames herself and is acting out and rebellious; Jane is obsessed with finding Max; and Kyle, a lawyer, struggles to cope with his own grief and a persistent suspicion that one of his cases is connected to Max’s disappearance.

With her family in turmoil and her marriage on the rocks, Jane thinks things can’t get any worse. Then when an affair and an unexpected pregnancy threaten to tear the Madisons’ lives apart, an anonymous caller leads to a break in the case. Can a second kidnapping bring their family back together?

    " I enjoyed the fast pace of this one. I didn't realize this had a Christian angle, but it wasn't overly prevalent. "

    " I liked this. It was fast paced, and built steadily to the climax. The ending wrapped everything up. I noticed one typo that can hopefully be fixed if it goes to another printing. But overall, this was a good suspense novel that I would recommend to others!! "

    " Brought tears to my eyes in certain parts. As many books half way through the book it became very suspenceful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 9/5/2013

    " The story kept me intrigued till the very end. The reason I didn't give it five stars is because sometimes the extensive dialogue was somewhat boring and unnecessary. "

    " Having been to New Orleans (although not during Mardi Gras) I found it unrealistic that the kidnapper could follow Jane from her house to downtown in and among the parade crowds. But I did enjoy the suspense even though I suspected some of the ending. "
