Families with nothing to hide don’t have so many secrets

Life can change in an instant. For Ryan and Karen Lane, it happens on the morning they discover their twelve-year-old daughter’s window open, their beloved Maddie missing from her bed.

Police investigate. Suspicions swirl. A teenage boy admits he was outside her bedroom window the night she disappeared. A halfway house for convicts recently opened in the neighborhood. The Lane family is thrown into turmoil, then detectives turn their sights on them.

No one is ruled out. Not Karen, with her tragic past, who argued with her daughter. Not Ryan, with his violent streak. Not Maddie’s thirteen-year-old brother, Tyler, who heard voices in her room the night she vanished.

Days, weeks, months, then agonizing years go by without answers, the Lanes fearing that Maddie is gone forever…until a stunning twist shocks everyone, plunging the family deeper into a world of buried secrets whose revelations threaten the very foundation of their lives.

    You think it is repetition of the questions,they ask and ask over and over. Then you realize this is how it is done in real life.They are looking for any clue, the way the questions are answered. Makes one realize that nothing is hidden when a child is missing. The innocence for all adults, or children will never be the same. Of their secrets, the fears, will be known and recorded. This had many twists and turns, filled with deep emotions, as the author does so well. My other thought let kids who want to run away read, and maybe grasp, of what that action will bring. Lives will never be the same if they do. This was another winner for the author and for us as readers.
