Laura Lippman's novels are as much about the mysteries of human nature as those of crime and circumstance. At best, she makes you want to go home and hold your family close; at worst, she may cause you to view them with unease and suspicion.

— From Deborah

Description


One of the most acclaimed and honored writers in the field of crime fiction, Laura Lippman offers readers a gripping tale of deception and delusion, of family wounds and betrayals.

Thirty years ago, the Bethany girls, ages eleven and fifteen, disappeared from a Baltimore shopping mall. They never returned, their bodies were never recovered, and only painful questions remain. Now, in the aftermath of a rush-hour hit-and-run accident, a clearly disoriented woman is claiming to be Heather, the younger Bethany sister. Not a shred of evidence supports her story, and every lead she reluctantly offers takes the police to another dead end--a dying, incoherent man; a razed house; a missing grave. But she definitely knows something about that terrible day--and about the shocking fissures that the tragedy exposed in the foundation of a seemingly solid family.
