Contemporary Suspense

New York

Estelle Paradise is found near death at the bottom of a ravine with a vague sense of loss and a fragmented memory when she wakes up in a hospital. The reality that sets in is terrifying when she realizes her daughter is missing.

In their Brooklyn apartment Estelle discovered her baby’s crib empty days earlier.  All traces of seven-month-old Mia has disappeared and there are no signs of a break-in.  Mia’s clothes, bottles and diapers are all gone.

Estelle begins a desperate search when she is frustrated and unable to explain her daughter’s disappearance. Estelle is soon the number one suspect in the eyes of both the police and media when her story is cast in doubt due to the lack of evidence.

Estelle will do anything to find answers as hope is all she has left of reuniting with Mia.  What has someone done to Mia or what has she done to her baby?

This is a story that takes some amazing twists and turns and will keep readers guessing as to just what has happened to Mia.  Just as the reader thinks they know what is going on another clue is revealed that will have them wondering if they are close to figuring out what is the truth.  It is also a book that is very hard to put down as readers will want to know just how this one turns out.  The story grabs readers by the throat and doesn’t let go until the very last page.  This is one suspense story not to miss.

I give this one 5 red roses
