Suspense filled but a bit hard to believe. But....couldn't put it down - wanted to know what happened.

Great book. Very suspenseful and entertaining.

implausible and a bit long. I have read worse... and many many which were better.

Another excellent book by Linwood Barclay. A family completely disappears without a trace except for a 14 year old girl. Twenty five years later Cynthia starts looking for answers. The characters are well developed with a really good mystery.

This is a great read. I couldn't wait to get back to it each time I had to put it down! I even stayed up late to finish it.

This book is the reason I can't read suspense any more. I was totally stressed out until I could get to the end - and I had to read to the end to find out what happened, because there was just no way I ever would have figured it out on my own.

I love finding a new author! I really liked this book and have a list of his others to read.

I could not put this book down. Read it in one and a half days. Great story line, flowed smoothly, and well written. Now I look forward to other books by same author. Highly recommend.

Despite the complex drama becoming increasingly improbable, even ludicrous, you just keep reading; readable, enjoyable, and it made the time pass.
