#16 in the Alan Gregory series. I wasn't thrilled with the reappearance of ex-wife Meredith, I felt she had worn out her welcome tears ago. When she wants Alan to track down her surrogate and that leads to an extended trip down memory lane to a Grand Canyon trip taken by the surrogate when Meredith's fiance Eric and the surrogate were in college together. Confused yet? Do you care about these people?
White, however, is a skillful author, and manages to pull an average novel out of this.

Alan Gregory & Lauren Crowder series - On a trip to Manhattan, soon after adopting the son of a close friend who died in a terrorist blast in Israel, Alan meets with his ex-wife, Merideth, who asks him to help her and her fiance, political consultant Eric Leffler, track down their surrogate, who disappeared soon after becoming pregnant with their child. Initially reluctant, Alan eventually agrees to investigate. Aided by his Boulder detective friend, Sam Purdy, Alan gets drawn into a web of lies that stretches back to an ill-fated Grand Canyon hiking trip when Eric and the surrogate were in college together.
