From critically acclaimed, multiple-award winner Laura Lippman comes a riveting story of love and murder, guilt and innocence.

Two little girls banished from a neighborhood birthday party find a stroller with an infant inside on an unfamiliar Baltimore street. What happens next is shocking and terrible, causing the irreparable devastation of three separate families.

Seven years later, Alice Manning and Ronnie Fuller, now eighteen, are released from "kid prison" to begin their lives over again. But the unanswered questions about the original crime continue to haunt the parents, the lawyers, the police, and all the adults in Alice's and Ronnie's lives. And now another child has disappeared, under freakishly similar circumstances.

Two kidnapped babies, two girls released from prison. Who is telling the truth?

This was a great read. The characters were quite believable. The ending was a bit shocking but seemed to be the only reasonable conclusion. Laua Lippman is a definite addition to my list of favorite authors.

This was a great read. I was lucky enough to find several hours in a row during which I read three-quarters of the book in one setting. Later that night I was watching the news and wondered why there was no mention of the missing baby, only to remind myself that the missing baby was really a fictional baby from this novel. That's the mark of a great read. This isn't great literature, but it's suspenseful; the characters are well thought out, and the plot is believable. This was my first Lippman novel, but I'll be looking for others.

As each person's secret comes unraveled, it discloses how they all depend on one another to protect themselves and to keep the surface of the mystery unruffled and closed.
