When Mari Gilbert's daughter disappears, police inaction drives her own investigation into the gated Long Island community where Shannan was last seen. Her search brings attention to over a dozen murdered sex workers.
Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
Matt and Kate buy an isolated house. While moving, they discover a strange room that grants them an unlimited number of material wishes. But, since Kate has had two miscarriages, what they miss the most is a child.
A weathered Lieutenant, his police force, and a local vigilante are all caught up in a dangerous scheme involving a recently arrested, troubled man who's linked to years of female abductions and murders.
I am so glad that I checked this out. This is a slow burner that delivers. It is well acted and the story is well constructed. There is a great amount of tension throughout and while it doesn't have a lot of dialogue or backstory, the atmosphere totally draws you in and keeps you interested. The best part of this is believing you have it all figured out then being smacked with something you couldn't, or at least I couldn't, see coming. That qualifies it as awesome for me.
If you like thrillers, check it out. If you are a mom, check it out. It is so worth it.
