Jason Jones arrives home one night from work to discover his house locked up and his wife missing. Her purse and clothes are all still in the house but Sandra is gone; their 4 year old daughter still sleeping in her bed. Detective Sergeant Warren knows Jason is responsible for his wife's disappearance but can not prove it.

This was a good book by page 4 I was hooked. I never know what was going to happen until it happened. Everyone has secrets in this book even 4 year old Ree. Did Ree witness her mother's kidnapping? Was Sandra kidnapped or did she just leave? What is Jason trying to keep hidden from the police? Do Jason and Sandra's past have anything to do with her disappearance? Did the registered sex offender down the street have anything to do with it? IS Sandra even alive? These are just some of the questions you ask yourself while reading this book. Answers which Gardner does not even give a hint or a clue she just drops a bomb on you and you are left gasping from shock.
