Fourteen-year-old Cynthia Archer woke up one morning to discover her entire family had disappeared. No note. No clues. Nothing and no one to tell her where they went, what happened to them, whether they are alive or dead. Twenty-five years later, Cynthia and Terry Archer still live in Milford, Connecticut, not far from the house from which her family vanished. They have a solid marriage and a young daughter of their own, but the questions remain. What happened to Cynthia's family? Why did they disappear? How could they have left her behind? Cynthia thought there was nothing worse than not knowing the truth. But she was wrong. Knowing is going to be a lot worse? From critically acclaimed author Linwood Barclay comes a new thriller that shocks at every turn and strikes to the core of our most primal fear. What if everything you knew was a lie? What if you woke one day to find your life and those you loved had disappeared?

implausible and a bit long. I have read worse... and many many which were better.

Another excellent book by Linwood Barclay. A family completely disappears without a trace except for a 14 year old girl. Twenty five years later Cynthia starts looking for answers. The characters are well developed with a really good mystery.

This is a great read. I couldn't wait to get back to it each time I had to put it down! I even stayed up late to finish it.

This book is the reason I can't read suspense any more. I was totally stressed out until I could get to the end - and I had to read to the end to find out what happened, because there was just no way I ever would have figured it out on my own.

I love finding a new author! I really liked this book and have a list of his others to read.

I could not put this book down. Read it in one and a half days. Great story line, flowed smoothly, and well written. Now I look forward to other books by same author. Highly recommend.

Despite the complex drama becoming increasingly improbable, even ludicrous, you just keep reading; readable, enjoyable, and it made the time pass.

Outstanding!! My first book by this author and I was not disappointed. I definitely have put him on my "must read" list. Great story with a lot of suspense and twists/ ending I didn't see coming. Highly recommend!!

This is definitely my favourite Linwood Barclay book. It's a chilling and suspenseful fast-read.
