This is the third book in the DD Warren Series. I must say the BEST so far. Very suspenseful, thrilling, and keeps you guessing. I loved how Gardner through in characters from "Say Goodbye" Once I heard the reference of "the burger man" I was like OMG, I know who he is!!!!!!!! And since I LOVED LOVED LOVED Say goodbye I got even more excited about this book.

We are introduced to a nice normal typical Boston couple Jason and Sandra Jones. Jason is a local new reporter for the Boston Daily news and Sandra is a sixth grade Social Studies teacher. They have a four-year-old daughter Clarissa "Ree" Jones who has an orange cat named "Mr. Smith". The only thing that is out of the ordinary about this nice little neighborhood is the registered sex offender who lives five doors down by nobody knows he is a registered pedophile.

Trouble starts brewing up when Jason comes home from work at 2am and discovers Ree asleep in her room and his wife Sandra missing. Jason checks the house and the backyard and Sandra is nowhere to be found. This worries Jason because Sandra would never leave their daughter alone. After a walk-through of the house, he discovers that the bed sheets stripped off his bed and that the desk lamp is broken lying on the floor.

This is where detective Sergeant D. D. Warren enters the picture. Warren instantly finds a dislike towards Jason from the moment they meet. She feels there is just something not right about him. His lack of interest in finding his wife, and lack of emotion at all sends red flags everywhere. This is why Jason becomes the number one suspect in his wife's disappearance.

Throughout the story we find out that one of the main characters was abducted as a child and molested by a pedophile for several years who is now trying to get the photos and videos taken of him back while ruining the porn sellers. We also meet a community judge who has dark secrets to (which I am not going to say because it will ruin the story for you), a middle school boy who is brilliant with computers and in love with Sandra Jones who also attacks Jason with his text book, his uncle the policeman who we later find out had a semi relationship with Sandra and was secretly stalking her. You must read the book to find out all the juicy scandals!

Just when you think you have figured everything out, another twist or turn will come about and your left guessing again, what the heck happen to Sandra!

Get the book you will not be Disappointed!
