Publisher Comments:

One of the most acclaimed and honored writers in the field of crime fiction, Laura Lippman offers readers a gripping tale of deception and delusion, of family wounds and betrayals.

Thirty years ago, the Bethany girls, ages eleven and fifteen, disappeared from a Baltimore shopping mall. They never returned, their bodies were never recovered, and only painful questions remain. Now, in the aftermath of a rush-hour hit-and-run accident, a clearly disoriented woman is claiming to be Heather, the younger Bethany sister. Not a shred of evidence supports her story, and every lead she reluctantly offers takes the police to another dead end—a dying, incoherent man; a razed house; a missing grave. But she definitely knows something about that terrible day—and about the shocking fissures that the tragedy exposed in the foundation of a seemingly solid family.

Synopsis:

From the "New York Times"-bestselling creator of the Tess Monaghan series comes a pulse-pounding, stand-alone mystery in which a disoriented woman claims to be one of two sisters abducted from a mall 30 years ago.

Just finished reading this book and it was fantastic! It's one of those books that, when you're done, the next few books you read seem boring by comparison. Anyway, it's about two young sisters who disappear from a mall with no trace. When they aren't found, their devastated family moves on with their lives until 30 years later, out of the blue, one of them reappears. But is it really her or an imposter? And what happened to her sister? An investigator, social worker and lawyer try to piece together the past and verify her true identity. A fascinating mystery that you'll find hard to put down.
