From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a new thriller that will have Eve Duncan questioning everything she thought she knew about her family and her past

One woman held captive for decades...

Another one freed by the truth...



Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan knows what it's like to be haunted by the past. For years after her daughter Bonnie was stolen from her, she fought for closure. But now as she's striving to begin anew, she can't shake the feeling that something terrible is about to happen--or maybe already has. When her mother, Sandra, asks for help in finding a missing friend named Beth Avery, Eve is sure that she's hiding something. It's odd that Sandra would get involved at all, and the fact that she adamantly refuses to go to the police for help reinforces Eve's suspicions that something is very wrong.

Eve learns that Beth has been locked away in a mental hospital for years, which makes it even harder to understand how she could have disappeared. As Sandra reluctantly reveals small pieces of the truth about Beth's identity, Eve is shocked to discover that their lives are strangely entwined, and Beth's disappearance now puts them all in grave danger.

Desperate, Eve enlists a secret weapon to pick up Beth's trail: rogue profiler, Kendra Michaels. With an uncanny ability to detect clues and solve puzzles, Kendra begins to uncover the bizarre circumstances of Beth's escape from what should have been the safety of her hospital room. Beth is on the run, and as her mind clears--detoxing from the drugs that have held her prisoner--she begins to see the threads of a twisted plot within the powerful Avery family, threatening to destroy Beth and anyone else who might jeopardize the high-stakes game that is already in play.

I really enjoyed this book, kept my interest and I read it fairly quickly:)
I hope she goes further with this new character of eve's half sister.

Same Eve Duncan/Joe background, a couple new characters. One of which (Kendra), someone who comes off very brusque in both novels I've read with her. An average read, not one that I couldn't put down - but one that I did want to finish.

Worse than 'Close Your Eyes'. I can't finish the book. Returned it half way which I have never done to any book that I borrowed. What a shame.

I didn't like this one as well as some of her others. It lagged badly in the middle

Another point of view-- I enjoyed this story as much as the other b ooks by Iris, I thought it moved along great and had alot of action. I would recommend it.

I usually enjoy this author but am very disappointed in this book. One word describes it all lame...lame writing , lame characters. The characters were not very likeable and they interacted in an antagonistic manner. There wasn't one character that I liked. Painfully difficult to finish.

Little background that I came to this quote.
Saw a pin on a social media site, that said: Turn to page 45 of the book nearest to you. The first complete sentence will describe your sex life for the year.
I happened to have been reading this book and had it nearby. This is what I read...

"And it hurt, dammit."

Made me laugh, try it.
