Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

It takes more than a lie to hide the dark secrets of this picture-perfect family.

When the granddaughter of one of Florida’s most powerful judges disappears, it triggers a personal trauma for Detective Alice Garner: the kidnapping and murder of her own child. As a flood of painful memories comes rushing back, Alice sees herself in the guilt-ridden and emotionally fragile mother Charlotte Burke, who has become the target of a rush to judgment.

All too familiar with Charlotte’s situation, Alice is reluctant to cast any blame. Her gut instincts tell her that Charlotte’s anguish is rooted in something else - somewhere too dark for the truth to be seen. And Alice believes that it’s hiding behind the façade of the illustrious and guarded Burke mansion.

But uncovering Charlotte’s past comes with a risk. For Alice’s own life is becoming entangled in the secrets and lies of the picture-perfect family - an image that is about to be shattered in so many unexpected ways.

Ok

Story was just ok. A little hard to follow. And not a good wrap up at the end.

Surprised

I liked the build up of each character and all their faults. It actually made it hard to decide who the bad guy was. I decided several times and set it aside only to just guess half of it from early on but was totally surprised by the ending.
I will probably read more from this author now.

amazingly heartbreaking

This is a story that will make contemplate the question "what would YOU do?" The story skips around in time quite a bit, and at times it was hard to keep it all straight in my head. But wow oh wow! Worth the listen

I did like the twist

It wasn't bad, the story was surprising, but it was rather hard to get into it and the way it ends really don't satisfy the reader in my opinion.

Not just a sleeper

I have to say this was one of the worst books I’ve listened to, and I’ve listened to many over the last 4-5 years. The reader should not read another book out loud until she gets lessons. Her inflections/accent changed with the same person, and she would be harsh when the story read soft, etc. That being said, the story was slightly better than the reader’s interpretation. I won’t listen to another book read by this reader and probably not another book by this author.

Not great

Took to long to get into the book. The narrator child’s voice was creepy. Flashbacks were confusing.

The worst use of flashbacks I’ve ever encountered

I dislike flashbacks, but can tolerate one or two in a whole book. But this book had two or three flashbacks per chapter! And if that wasn’t bad enough the flashbacks times jumped around all over the place. One flashback would be prior to the abduction; the next might be three days after the abduction; the next would be seven days after the abduction; and the next might be five days after the abduction. Then there would be another flashback years prior to the abduction. Since they were not sequential, and the timing of the flashbacks were so unpredictable, it made the book hard to understand. The flashbacks were so frequent and so disjointed that they left my head swimming. Also, the author kept switching between characters, who were telling their own story. I was listening to this as an audiobook, so I frequently had to back up in a chapter to understand which character was speaking and what century we were in! This was the most annoying way of presenting material I have ever read. You ask why I kept listening? She did devise a good mystery, and I wanted to see who was the murderer and how the book ended. However, we don’t know how the story ends, because she left us hanging as to whether or not the protagonist was killed at the end! I have added this author to my list of do not read ever again.

Turgid and Muddy

l was unable to listen to it all as it became boring. Not worth purchasing - if curious borrow from your library.
