Publisher's Summary

When actress and model Allison Langley leaves her former rockstar husband in the middle of the night, it’s all her Oak Hill neighbors can talk about. But the gossip comes to an abrupt halt when five-year-old Billy Barnes goes missing on his walk home from kindergarten. 

Billy’s mother, Rachel, blames herself for being at work and letting her only child walk alone. Cassidy, Billy’s teenage babysitter, was also late to arrive on the afternoon he disappeared and blames herself for his disappearance. 

As the clock ticks down, police are unable to find any trace of Billy, forcing Rachel to ponder the enemies she’s made in their well-off suburb. Could it be one of her neighbors who stole her son? Would they abduct Billy to hurt her? How easy would it be to take a child while the parents or nannies are distracted? 

When another child goes missing, the town is put under a microscope as the police try to get to the bottom of the disappearances. Will they be able to find the two children, or will it be too late? What secrets lie at the heart of this tragedy, and how far will one go to keep those dangerous secrets buried?

Great Read

I absolutely enjoyed this storyline from the very beginning! It drew me in because I love stories told from the POV of many characters! This one kept me on the edge of my seat like Where The Crawdads Sing did

Great emotion, great pacing, fun story

This mystery of missing children is told through the lense of multiple people in a small well-to-do town. The characters and their motivations are easy to understand and follow, but the author does a great job of keeping you engaged. The author also made it fun to guess and learn who is responsible. Looking back, I feel that their were some perspectives that didn't add too much to the story as a whole, however they were still fun to hear and experience.

super

Loved the book and the characters. Very easy to follow and always knew who was talking. The mystery part was very easy for me to figure out but I still really enjoyed the book!

It's ok

The voice of the babysitter was so annoying! Figured it out pretty early, but it's ok.

Pretty good

If you can get past the fact that no one in their right mind would let a 5 year old walk home from school alone…..it’s not a bad story. Some of the narrators are annoying and some are good. Over all worth a credit.

Predictable and slow

Knew from early on.
Unnecessary narrators. It would be nice if only characters that matter narrated.
Allison’s and Cassidy’s narrators sounded like they were reading a school presentation from 7th grade. Not natural at all.
My first thought when the book ended was “that’s it?”

It was just okay..

A lot of characters to keep up with and I was able to figure out the plot twist before I got to it..

Don't Give Up

The narration in the beginning is pretty bad, I got used to it. I had some trouble with the premise of the 5 year old. Glad I stuck with it as the ending surprised me.

An enjoyable listen

In general I found the story engaging. At first the suburban moms were a little stereotyped, but that may have been intentional.
I gave the narration 4 stars because whoever was reading Allison ( and it sounded very much like reading and not narrating) was so flat and amateurish, it annoyed me. It detracted from the story for me. The other narrators were excellent.
I needed a break from James Patterson and I’m glad I chose this book. A refreshing change of genre.

Best book I ever read because it's more mysterious

Love the book because it gives me suspense mood and how the rising action builds up throughout the whole story

Perfect neighbourhood when a child got lost, gossips and rich family gather together to find the missing child. Somebody knows something.
Great suspense,but only focusing on one area. I guest self explanatory for the title, not quite a thriller and you can tell what will happen to the end . Doesn’t give me any chills especially when I’m a avid fan of super thriller/mystery genre .
Easy read,great for someone who’s staring the genre. Fast paced
