Summary

Summary

Families with nothing to hide don't have so many secrets

Life can change in an instant. For Ryan and Karen Lane, it happens on the morning they discover their twelve-year-old daughter's window open, their beloved Maddie missing from her bed.

Police investigate. Suspicions swirl. A teenage boy admits he was outside her bedroom window the night she disappeared. A halfway house for convicts recently opened in the neighborhood. The Lane family is thrown into turmoil, then detectives turn their sights on them.

No one is ruled out. Not Karen, with her tragic past, who argued with her daughter. Not Ryan, with his violent streak. Not Maddie's thirteen-year-old brother, Tyler, who heard voices in her room the night she vanished.

Days, weeks, months, then agonizing years go by without answers, the Lanes fearing that Maddie is gone forever...until a stunning twist shocks everyone, plunging the family deeper into a world of buried secrets whose revelations threaten the very foundation of their lives.

Library Journal Review

A parent's worst nightmare becomes reality for Ryan and Karen Lane when their 12-year-old daughter Maddie goes missing from her bedroom, and the window is wide open. Maddie would have no reason to run away, and a boy with a crush admits he was outside her window that night but didn't do anything. Suspicion immediately falls on Ryan, since he sometimes cannot control his anger, and Karen, since she got into an argument with Maddie before her disappearance. As time passes, the family that seemed solid before this tragic event begins to fall apart. Former crime reporter ­Mofina (Last Seen; Before Sunrise) knows how to craft a story that is both exciting and terrifying. The mystery of Maddie's disappearance becomes convoluted and more baffling as the tale progresses, making it a true surprise when everything is revealed. VERDICT Well-developed characters and an intense pace add to this gripping novel. This latest from a gifted storyteller should not be missing from your reading pile.-Jeff Ayers, Seattle P.L. © Copyright 2019. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
