Description
The secrets of a picture perfect family are exposed in this "tour de force"* thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner.

Ten minutes after walking the elite Back Bay townhouse and investigator Tessa Leoni already doesn't like what she sees. Signs of an abduction. Clearly the work of professionals. At best, the entire family has been kidnapped. At worst...

The more Tessa learns about the Denbe family, the less she likes their chances. What might have looked like the perfect existence--a powerful CEO, his adoring wife, their angelic child--is not what it appears. Husband, wife, daughter--magazine perfect, but each hiding dark secrets...

Tessa knows more than she'd like to about families riddled with lies. What she doesn't know is where the Denbes are and if any of them are still breathing. She'll have to climb over unbending feds and territorial local cops to find out, and if she's not fast, the Denbes' chances of survival will quickly become little more than touch and go...
