In 1983, the three Hathaway brothers – Jed, 8, Matt, 6 and Andrew, 4 – disappeared along the banks of the Mississippi.

I cannot literally bring down the book. It was a page turner to me. The very story is unique to me. I admire the tenacity of the parents of these lost children especially the news anchor. The development of the story was good and the revelation of the incidents. However, the ending was bland.

Handberg's prose improves with each novel. The story is loosely based on the Klein brothers' disappearance. It was fun to read all of his 'CCO connections and Minnesota references. As a former reporter, the newsroom management characters were spot on.

The writing was ok, the story was really good, definitely kept me interested and I couldn't put it down. The ending fell little flat. Overall a good, quick read.

S.L.O.W start. It took a good 125, 150 pages to get into it but, when it did, I couldn't stop reading. Good ending but I would have liked more explanation.

Tough story, based on a true story of three brothers who disappeared.....but well written and interesting to follow. Another new author for me.

This story is set in Minnesota, I think that was partly the draw. I enjoy reading "investigation" stories and this one was good!
