Laura Lippman, the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of The Most Dangerous Thing, I’d Know You Anywhere, and What the Dead Know, returns with an addictive story that explores how one man’s disappearance echoes through the lives of the wife, mistress, and daughters he left behind.When Felix Brewer meets Bernadette “Bambi” Gottschalk at a Valentine’s Dance in 1959, he charms her with wild promises, some of which he actually keeps. Thanks to his lucrative—if not all legal—businesses, she and their three little girls live in luxury. But on the Fourth of July, 1976, Bambi’s comfortable world implodes when Felix, newly convicted and facing prison, mysteriously vanishes.Though Bambi has no idea where her husband—or his money—might be, she suspects one woman does: his mistress, Julie. When Julie disappears ten years to the day that Felix went on the lam, everyone assumes she’s left to join her old lover—until her remains are eventually found.Now, twenty-six years after Julie went missing, Roberto “Sandy” Sanchez, a retired Baltimore detective working cold cases for some extra cash, is investigating her murder. What he discovers is a tangled web stretching over three decades that connects five intriguing women. And at the center is the missing man Felix Brewer.Somewhere between the secrets and lies connecting past and present, Sandy will find the truth. And when he does, no one will ever be the same.

This mystery story kept me guessing until the end. Guessing so wildly that I suspected nearly every character, and even wondering whether there was a murder at all. Even better, I was glued to the story for the characters as much as the plot. They were nuanced enough that none were heroic, but nearl...

This is a difficult book to review. At first I couldn't get into the storyline. It skips between so many characters and past and present times. I had trouble getting a hold on what was going on. After it caught me, it really caught me. I was so into the twisted tale of what really happened. Th...

Goodreads giveaway. 4.5 stars rounded up to 5.Beautifully crafted, like a delicately woven rug. Each chapter past and present building upon each other to make the pattern complete at the end. I wanted to know the answers to the riddles, but. I didn't want to stop the expert story telling.
