APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A tidy suburb hides messy secrets in a pitch-perfect domestic thriller from the always-reliable Mary Kubica. An affluent Chicago suburb is shaken when people start to disappear: first, new mom Shelby Tebow, then her doula, Meredith, and Meredith’s young daughter, Delilah. Cops pin Shelby’s death on her hot-tempered husband, but Meredith’s disappearance becomes an unsolved cold case—until Delilah shows up after 11 years in captivity. Moving back and forth in time and across multiple points of view, Kubica crafts a masterful puzzle filled with shocking revelations that connect characters and events in ways we couldn’t have imagined. (All we’ll say is that Delilah’s reappearance is just the beginning!) And the cast of four narrators makes this taut mystery a thoroughly immersive experience. Don’t miss this unforgettable story about strong women in desperate circumstances.

Good story. Bad reader
The story was great! Kept me guessing the whole time. But the breathy annoying voice of Kate was almost unbearable. I would skip past her most of the time.
I don’t know what others are complaining about, I was addicted to this book from page one. Sure there are controversy as to how the character should have handled situations, but that’s a character flaw not a storyline issue. I thought this was such a good read and never did I expect that ending!
