Synopses & Reviews
Seven years ago, novelist Celia Hagen nearly lost everything. She's managed to put the nightmare behind her and begin a new life in Switzerland with her beloved Benicio and their adopted son, Benny. But now a new terror is beginning? On a train ride through the South of France, Celia turns her back for just a moment, and Benny vanishes. Days of waiting at home go by with no clues and no ransom demands. Frantic and frustrated by the efforts of police and Interpol, Celia ignores everyone's advice, including Benicio?s, and returns to the little village where she believes Benny has been taken. Aided by her grown son, Oliver, and the inscrutable Inspector Moreau, Celia begins her own investigation. At first glance, Saint-Corbenay seems picturesque, but something sinister lurks beneath its facade. When Celia chances upon a photograph of Benny, she realizes that this was no random kidnapping ? and her entire family is now in danger. To have any hope of finding Benny, she must reexamine everything she's come to believe about those closest to her, and once again come face to face with her deadly past.
