Synopsis:

Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life that looks good in the pages of a glossy magazine. A beautiful fifteen-year old daughter, Ashlyn. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s elite Back Bay neighbourhood  A great marriage, admired by friends and family.  A perfect life.

When investigator Tessa Leoni arrives at the crime scene in the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and Taser confetti in the foyer.  The family appears to have been abducted, with only a pile of their most personal possessions remaining behind.  No witnesses, no ransom demands, no motive.  Just an entire family, vanished without a trace.

Tessa knows better than anyone that even the perfect façades can hide the darkest secrets.  Now she must race against the clock to uncover the Denbes’ innermost dealings, a complex tangle of friendships and betrayal, big business and small sacrifices.  Who would want to kidnap such a perfect little family?  And how far would such a person be willing to go?

My Review:

This is my first book from this author and I liked it a lot. As I haven’t read the previous books in the series, it was a bit difficult to understand Tessa’s background but it sure was intriguing. I need to check her other books now.

Though I figured out the plot midway through, it was still thrilling. I loved the devilish mindset of the villain, the clever way in which it was all planned and played out. The twisted mind was just brilliant. The victims had their own personal problems to deal with and that added layers to the plot. I loved the writing style, the rich and twisted characters A very good read and a page turner.
