People don’t just disappear without a trace…

Shelby Tebow is the first to go missing. Not long after, Meredith Dickey and her six-year-old daughter, Delilah, vanish just blocks away from where Shelby was last seen, striking fear into their once-peaceful community. Are these incidents connected? After an elusive search that yields more questions than answers, the case eventually goes cold.

Now, eleven years later, Delilah shockingly returns. Everyone wants to know what happened to her, but no one is prepared for what they’ll find…

In this smart and chilling thriller, master of suspense and New York Times bestselling author Mary Kubica takes domestic secrets to a whole new level, showing that some people will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.


I'm a big fan of this author in general, and have read quite a few of their books. This one was captivating right from the very beginning. I found it hard to put down and absolutely flew through it, even though I was living a hectic life when I was reading it.

I'm a huge fan of books with multiple points of view, especially in a psychological thriller. This and the fact that there were multiple timeliness (now and 11 years before), made everything unfold in a wonderful way. I found that I was interested in every character's point of view and both timeliness equally, which is a huge feat!

The first major twist caught me so off guard I was in shock.  The ending completely blew my mind! I highly recommend this one if you need a good thriller.
