Thirty years ago two sisters disappeared from a shopping mall. Their bodies were never found and those familiar with the case have always been tortured by these questions: How do you kidnap two girls? Who--or what--could have lured the two sisters away from a busy mall on a Saturday afternoon without leaving behind a single clue or witness? Now a clearly disoriented woman involved in a rush-hour hit-and-run claims to be the younger of the long-gone Bethany sisters. But her involuntary admission and subsequent attempt to stonewall investigators only deepens the mystery. Where has she been? Why has she waited so long to come forward? Could her abductor truly be a beloved Baltimore cop? There isn't a shred of evidence to support her story, and every lead she gives the police seems to be another dead end--a dying, incoherent man, a razed house, a missing grave, and a family that disintegrated long ago, torn apart not only by the crime but by the fissures the tragedy revealed in what appeared to be the perfect household. In a story that moves back and forth across the decades, there is only one person who dares to be skeptical of a woman who wants to claim the identity of one Bethany sister without revealing the fate of the other. Will he be able to discover the truth?… (mais)

Another read-all-night book by the gifted Lippman. Her journalistic skills and her literary skills combine to tell another gritty, breath-taking tale that draws the reader into the experiences. ( )

A woman flees the scene of a traffic accident and when the police track her down she claims to be one of a pair of sisters that was kidnapped from a mall decades ago. Thus begins a mystery of what happened to the Bethany sisters and whether the mysterious woman really is Heather Bethany. I really enjoyed this novel. The mystery was interesting to me and the author did a good job of giving the reader a glimpse into how a tragedy such as this affects the different parties involved. The story is not told linearly, and it took a little while to get used to the timeline skipping around in time and from perspective to perspective, but once I decided to just relax and read and it will eventually be clear where we are and who we were with, it flowed nicely for me. I think I had some extra enjoyment since I am from the area the story took place and I am familiar with most of the locations mentioned in the book. The author is from the Baltimore area and her descriptions of the Baltimore - Washington region were very accurate (which is not often the case with book set here). The characters were mostly well developed (at least the ones whose perspectives we shared) with both flaws and strengths. Overall, it was an enjoyable read that kept me guessing and wondering what really happened until the end. ( )

One of those five-path books that lets you see the kid victims, the detective, the grieving parents, one's out of bounds romps, the past, the present, mostly in or around Baltimore. The first half works, then it bogs down. The stories get too tedious, the victim's trauma wears you down. But a worthy write. I foured it. ( )

This is a very well written book. It contains a lot of heartache and sadness. while reading I could not decide who the woman actually was. However, the ending was one I had not considered. ( )

Synopsis: A cold case file is suddenly opened when one of two girls who are supposed to be dead some 30 years is found alive. However, it is not clear whether she's really one of the girls or a well-prepared pretender.
Review: This is actually a pretty chilling book about kidnapping, murder and abuse. ( )

The living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no more reward, and event the memory of them is lost. Their love and their hate and their envy have already perished; never again will they have any share in all that happens under the sun. -Ecclesiastes 9:5-6
