Publisher Description

A second violent crime shocks the small town of Oak Knoll in this “chilling” (USA Today) thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag.

California, 1986—A 911 call from a small child sends the idyllic town of Oak Knoll into a tailspin. Then a brutal crime scene is discovered: the body of Marissa Fordham with her young daughter, Haley, injured but alive.
 
Sheriff’s detective Tony Mendez faces a puzzle with nothing but pieces that won’t fit. To assist with his witness, Haley, he calls teacher-turned-child advocate Anne Leone, who’s already the star witness in a sensational murder trial.
 
As Tony and Anne begin to peel back the layers of Marissa Fordham’s life, they find a clue fragment here, another there. And just when it seems Marissa has taken her secrets to the grave, they uncover a fact that puts Anne and Haley directly in the sights of a killer: Marissa Fordham never existed.

Amazing, Captivating, Keeps you guessing to the end.

This by far is one of my favorite books that I’ve read in my adult life. The characters are very well explained and easy to imagine. Very interesting story with some amazing twists and turns. This is one of the books that I struggled to put down while I was cooking or showering or working. Great book! Probably one of the only books I would consider reading more than once.

Disappointing

I used to looked forward to Ms. Hoag’s books - the plot line was interesting, the writing superb. Sadly, her books has become so trite, almost boiler plate romance novel in style, filled with poor dialogue, gratuitous sex/emotional scenes that detract from a lackluster plot. I wonder if she’s farmed out her books to ghost writers in order to fulfill her contract.
