More than a year ago, Natalie Gordon went to buy a balloon at the Thanksgiving Day parade and dissolved into thin air. The police and a private investigator still have no leads. So when Natalie’s despairing husband pleads with ex-nun Christine Bennett to help, she can’t say no.

Not only are Natalie’s present whereabouts a mystery, but so is her past. Someone has stripped her personnel file in her old office, and even her husband knows little about her. Starting with a cardboard box of Natalie’s belongings—a few books, keys, some cosmetics—Christy searches for a life someone has tried very hard to erase and finds a cast of characters so chilling that murder seems not only inevitable, but likely to happen again.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] well-crafted novel of detection…Susan O’Malley narrates this puzzling mystery in a straightforward, no-frills style…Her spare style matches the characteristics of her detective, Chris Bennet Brooks…[who] approaches the task of finding out what happened in a painstaking, no-nonsense manner, which is interesting but not melodramatic.”

    " Don't judge a book by its cover, nor the title. I thought this was the cheesiest title ever, but I picked it up at a beach house I was in, and I couldn't stop reading it. The picture on the cover was very misleading. I never thought the book was going to be as good as it was. "
