Two families' pasts unravel when the last person to see a missing girl alive is murdered and the victim's crime-writing father becomes the prime suspect. "This suspenseful narrative will grip even the most discerning readers of thriller/suspense. There are elements of such engaging texts as Gone Girl and even Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and there's a lot to like about this book. The author does a wonderful job with the slow burn, making me believe but simultaneously question most of the characters, and the revelations that unfold in the last act are truly surprising."

Readers who enjoy a tightly crafted mystery and well-written characters will appreciate this story. Highly recommended!"

The pace never sagged and it kept me enthralled." - Long and Short Reviews "Lawson's book was so good, I read it twice from beginning to end...The citizens of Cape Unity are as diverse and multi-layered as any person living in the large cities, and Lawson portrayed them splendidly." - Reader's Favorite Reviews "The storyline here is nicely structured, and creatively ties together two murder mysteries, which occurred decades apart.
