From the author of the acclaimed Promise Not to Tell comes a chilling and perfectly plotted tale in which crimes of the past and present blend in a mesmerizing tale of mystery, shattered innocence, guilt, and redemption

On her a way to a job interview, Rhonda never expected to get caught in the middle of a crime.

Plagued by guilt, she's determined to help with the investigation. But as she gets closer to discovering the kidnapper's identity, she also gets closer to uncovering the truth behind the disappearance of another child--her best friend Lizzy who went missing years before. As Rhonda races to solve the two overlapping mysteries, she rekindles an old romances, learns that people from her past a far different than what they seemed, and ultimately finds liberation.
