People don’t just disappear without a trace…

Shelby Tebow is the first to go missing. Not long after, Meredith Dickey and her six-year-old daughter, Delilah, vanish just blocks away from where Shelby was last seen, striking fear into their once-peaceful community. Are these incidents connected? After an elusive search that yields more questions than answers, the case eventually goes cold.

Now, eleven years later, Delilah shockingly returns. Everyone wants to know what happened to her, but no one is prepared for what they’ll find…

In this smart and chilling thriller, master of suspense and New York Times bestselling author Mary Kubica takes domestic secrets to a whole new level, showing that some people will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.



11 years ago and a married woman is cheating on her husband. She will sometimes leave home late at night saying she is going for a jog, and then meet up with her mysterious man.

Jump ahead to the present – Delilah hears footsteps above her head and voices talking above her. Delilah is keep in a small, dark room with a boy names Gus. A room that is in the basement. They often play games they make up to pass the time in this dark room. They are being held captive, but who has kidnapped the and why? What could they possibly want?

Without giving too much away there is so much mystery and suspense going on in this novel and I absolutely LOVED it. I found myself hooked on the pages trying to guess what was going on, and why these people were all missing. Would they ever find their way back home? Will the person(s) responsible even be caught?

A fabulous novel that I recommend.


MY RATING: 4/5 stars
