Liz Daniels, the mother of two young children, should be happy that she is finally about to enjoy a rare family vacation. Unfortunately, Liz has misgivings about the trip the family is on to visit her husband's parents because of the strained relations that have existed.

On the last leg of the drive to the farm in Upstate New York, they stop at a hotel for the evening. Imagine Liz's horror when the next morning she discovers that her children are missing. After the police are called in and an Amber Alert issued, the search begins for the children.

Someone Liz has thoroughly trusted has taken her two youngsters and although they are safe for now, the challenge is finding them and getting them back. This distraught mother will have to follow the trail and uncover the secret that has totally upended her family and placed their lives at risk.

One of the bright, new voices in psychological suspense, Jenny Milchman's previous critically acclaimed novel, Cover of Snow, was a success with readers. She takes it to another level in this latest thriller, thus proving her debut work was no fluke.
