Annotation
"#1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner, author ofCatch MeandLove You More, returns with a heart-thumping thriller about what lurks behind the facade of a perfect family."

"This is my family: Vanished without a trace "

"Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life that looks good in the pages of a glossy magazine. A beautiful fifteen-year old daughter, Ashlyn. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston s elite Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by friends and family. A perfect life."

"This is what I know: Pain has a flavor "

"When investigator Tessa Leoni arrives at the crime scene in the Denbes home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and Taser confetti in the foyer. The family appears to have been abducted, with only a pile of their most personal possessions remaining behind. No witnesses, no ransom demands, no motive. Just an entire family, vanished without a trace."

"This is what I fear: The worst is yet to come "

"Tessa knows better than anyone that even the most perfect facades can hide the darkest secrets. Now she must race against the clock to uncover the Denbes innermost dealings, a complex tangle of friendships and betrayal, big business and small sacrifices. Who would want to kidnap such a perfect little family? And how far would such a person be willing to go?"

"This is the truth: Love, safety, family it is all touch and go.""
