From a master of suspense comes a chilling new novel that explores the dangers lurking closer than you think. Because even in the perfect family, you never know what is going on behind closed doors…

This is what happened…

It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy—a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect.

In the last six hours…

But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses’ snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create. On the surface, Jason and Sandra Jones are like any other hardworking young couple raising a four-year-old child. But it is just under the surface that things grew murky.

Of the world as I knew it…

With the clock ticking on the life of a missing woman and the media firestorm building, Jason Jones seems more intent on destroying evidence and isolating his daughter than on searching for his “beloved” wife. Is the perfect husband trying to hide his guilt—or just trying to hide? And will the only witness to the crime be the killer’s next victim?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty | 2/16/2014

    " Not bad. Certainly kept my interest. A few unanswered questions at the end. Overall a nice thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Allan | 1/19/2014

    " A gripping hook. I was in from the first page. The climax stopped me though. I found it a bit of a stretch. Perhaps it just needed more setup. Overall, I enjoyed this novel and love Lisa's writing style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 1/15/2014

    " This book was pretty good. It's definitely better than the earlier books in the series. Unfortunately, the ending seemed not well thought out. A lot happens at the end that doesn't connect very well to the rest of the book. Still, I liked it. It's worth the $8 for the Kindle edition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie Disher | 1/2/2014

    " I enjoyed this book because it kept me guessing. It starts out similar to Gone Girl (although this book was first I believe) in that a wife goes missing and the husband seems uncoorperative in finding her. Lots of secrets and hints and red herrings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CLM | 12/7/2013

    " This absolutely held my attention but there were so many holes in the plot that I ultimately found it disappointing. I am surprised no editor pointed out these flaws. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 12/4/2013

    " A really good mystery/suspense book. The audio version was great, I think 3 different narrators. This is the 3rd in this series and they've all kept me guessing till the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 11/23/2013

    " A young woman mysteriously disappears. Her husband is the 'person of interest', as is the registered sex offender from down the street. The Police are in a conundrum... and that is the start of an interesting tale of mysteries both old and new. The climax is well worth staying up late to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda C | 7/6/2013

    " I love the way Lisa Gardner tells a story. She knows how to keep you hooked on the mystery and telling you enough clues to the outcome.........but not enough to give away the ending. Great writer for sure "
